Located in the heart of the University of Sydney, the Seymour champions cultural exploration, arts education and audience engagement.
Each year over 250,000 people engage with the Centre as audience, theatre creators, directors, designers, technicians and performers – and the numbers are growing.
We present a diverse range of the best of contemporary performing arts including participation in some of this city’s major arts festivals; the Sydney Comedy Festival, Sydney Children’s Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival and the iconic Sydney Festival.
The Seymour is also a dynamic hub for diverse arts activity: we are home to four innovative performance companies who all present work in the Centre: SIMA Jazz performs the best of contemporary jazz regularly in our Sound Lounge; Shaun Parker and Co presents major dance and physical theatre works; Chronology Arts commission and perform contemporary classical music and Critical Stages, a company quickly becoming Australia's leading producer of touring independent theatre.
As part of the University of Sydney we host a vibrant program of University events and student performances, ranging from lectures by leading world thinkers as part of the Sydney Ideas program to presenting the annual student revue season.
