Founded in 2022 with a hope of bringing continued joy to audiences via the arts - Lacinda Fisk created a supportive & professional platform for elite performers. Working in Japan inspired the company title - with Ikigai meaning 'that which gives your life purpose.' Exactly what the performing arts does for Lacinda.
The goal is to provide high quality performance opportunities in a supportive & inclusive environment for professionally trained and technical artists.
Ikigai Entertainment strives to create entertaining & exemplary productions that can be enjoyed by both audiences & the performers alike.
The performing arts have suffered so much over the past few years due to the Global Pandemic - so it is time now for live entertainment to be back in the forefront of people's minds. By creating a platform to do so - our community can be exposed to and enriched by the many talented performers that live and breath the arts on our very shore.
We are interested in casting any age, race, gender, identity, and physical ability. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the forefront of this production.
The Team are committed to the practice of colour, gender identity and disability conscious casting - recognising that considerations of race, identity and disability including how this shapes society and the stories we tell, are vital components to the casting process.
Also critical to the casting process are audience perceptions of race, identity, and disability on stage. We strive to craft performances in ways that respect, care for, and honour individuals, cultures, identities, communities and lived experiences.
Ikigai Entertainment acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
