IMPORTANT UPDATE – A Clockwork Orange: A Play with Music

ATYP regrets to announce we are postponing A Clockwork Orange: A Play with Music. This difficult decision has been made following the ongoing financial impact of COVID on the delivery of the 2022 season. 

Despite the creative successes of ATYP’s productions The Deb and M.Rock, the financial risk in staging major productions in this environment is overwhelming. At present every ATYP program has experienced a period of closure, change of personnel and/or the urgent recruitment of additional personnel as well as high levels of audience cancellations due to illness.  

The financial impact is further exacerbated by the defunding of ATYP by the federal government’s arts investment and advisory body, The Australia Council. 

To support the artists and creative team of A Clockwork Orange, ATYP is conducting a two-week creative development in August which will culminate in a work-in-development showing. 

The staff and Board of ATYP deeply regret being forced to make this decision and the company remains committed to this production and the extraordinary artists that will bring it to the stage.

ATYP’s ongoing financial security is now a priority. 

If you are concerned about the impact federal funding cuts are having on ATYP and the Arts more broadly, you can have your say by making a submission to the National Cultural Policy by 22 August.
