Dirk Hoult (he/him)

Hi, my name's Dirk, and these are my tilted projects. I'm a Melbourne (Naarm) based actor and director, a creative producer and a performance coach. I am passionate about the development of new theatrical works; plays, musical theatre, cabaret, and circus.

I'm a theatre artist committed to bringing untold stories to the stage and devising collaborative works that focus on our Australian story through a tilted lens. I was born in Melbourne and raised in Ipswich (Jagerra), Queensland. I trained as an actor at the University of South Queensland and spent a decade working in Brisbane's independent theatre sector before moving to the UK. Before I graduated from the Univesity of Melbourne's Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) with an MA in 'Directing For Live Performance' I'd spent many years on the variety stage; performing in, writing for, producing and directing nights of circus, burlesque, comedy, magic, and live music. I'm an actor/singer, director, writer, dramaturg, and creative producer, with over 20 years of lived industry experience.
