HOMUNCULUS THEATRE COMPANY
Clint is founder and Artistic Director of Homunculus Theatre Company (2003 - 2018).
“Homunculus Theatre Company are brilliant! There is certainly no theatre company who does Commedia dell'arte like Homunculus in Australia! Our students and staff had so much fun! I guarantee you’ll be in stitches after the show! " ★★★★★ -- Clontarf Beach State High School, QLD.
Homunculus has contributed 15 years to delighting and inspiring audiences across Australia and New Zealand. We offer a wide range of In-Schools Workshops & Performances, Artist In Residence Programs, Professional Development for Teachers, Roving Acts and Regional Community Projects.

Homunculus believes the Arts should be central to a child’s education. Drama particularly has a vital place in the lives of young people in the 21st Century. In an age when people are increasingly interacting and indeed living via and inside of technology, it is the subject and practice of comedy that offers what otherwise can so easily be lost from our lives.
