Wall of Faves aims to recognise the achievements of theatremakers across Southeast Queensland and beyond, Wall of Faves highlights our team’s favourite performances throughout the community, independent and professional sectors.
Wall of Faves was established in 2019, after Theatre Haus’ first year of conception. While only able to showcase a small selection in its initial year, Wall of Faves now includes local, national and international producers, performers, artists and creatives and celebrates the immense and diverse talent of our arts and entertainment industry.
Without getting too philosophical, who can really define what is “best” when it comes to the arts and creative industries?
We are open about the subjectivity of what we do – from our reviews to our events. Wall of Faves recognises that which our team enjoyed the most (their favourites), whether or not they’re also the best of the year/industry isn’t really for us to decide!
In early December, nominations open to the Theatre Haus team. Each member gets the opportunity to share one favourite in each of the categories. They do not need have reviewed the show, but must have seen it to nominate.
We also take precautions to ensure the nomination of friends/associates is reflected on carefully and with justification.
In late December, nominations open to the general public who have their own category, People’s Choice.
Since Wall of Faves 2021, Theatre Haus has included a People’s Choice category. This Fave is distinct from all others, as the reviewer team at Theatre Haus has no say. Instead, the public is asked for their input in selecting the list of nominees. It relies on anonymous selection, an honesty system, and a tally of the most-voted productions for the final selection.
In 2023, to mark five years of Wall of Faves, we are going to run People’s Choice a little differently. Stay tuned for more soon.
If you want to nominate your favourite show, People’s Choice is your opportunity to have your voice heard.
However, if you think you have what it takes to join the team, we are always welcoming new applicants for reviewer and writer roles. If you love theatre and have training in the arts, journalism, media or similar, hit us up.
Our roles are strictly volunteer, and most written pieces are done so in exchange of complimentary tickets to events.
