Who we are

True Ability is an ensemble of performing artists living with a disability in Adelaide, South Australia. We are an initiative of AJZ Productions, a not-for-profit arts organisation.

What we do

True Ability offers classes and workshops people living with a disability of all ages. We teach people how to create and perform in creative projects like theatre shows, films and interactive experiences. Our works are performed in public for a general audience.


Our mission is to create professional theatre pieces, films and advocacy for artists with a lived experience of disability in Adelaide, Australia.

We will have a standard of excellence in arts and accessibility and be an example for people around the world.
