VIMH (the voice in my hands) produces bold original new work and PURSUES RISK, RIGOUR AND CARE IN EVERYTHING IT DOES.

VIMH is an independent theatre company based in Melbourne.

We make new work that sits in liminal spaces and imagines alternative ways of being together.

We have a community gathering practice, making spaces where experimentation feels safe, where artists feel supported, and where practice is rigorous and inclusive.

Reviews of VIMH’s most recent work my sister feather:

““Satchell’s text masterfully crafts these characters in this moment […] and her team admirably demonstrate that good theatre doesn’t need big casts and bigger sets. All it needs is a couple of great actors and a script that has something to say.” (Witness Performance)

“[T]his is a play of intensity and courage that swims in a sea of complex femininity” (Theatre People)

“It was my first time attending a show at La Mama. With its proud history of fostering and supporting great Australian talent (Cate Blanchett and Judith Lucy among their alumni), my expectations were high and I was not disappointed.” (Stage Whispers)
