ABOUT

Before becoming The Drama Merchant, Nathan Schulz, gained his experience within the Gold Coast theatre scene, since 1998, working with various mentors and people within community theatre developing his skills as an actor and director. In 2015 he branched out under the name Nathan Schulz presents, venturing away from community theatre, and into the world of Independent Theatre, entering into Anywhere Festival - Brisbane. Here he adapted to the festivals premise that "theatre can be performed in any space" and utilizing his experience in producing works on a stage, and under the guidance of playwright, director, and theatre critic, and friend, Nigel Munro-Wallis, he quickly began to nurture his abilities on creating his signature brand of Site Specific Theatre.

The Curiosity Experiment, an immersive ghost story for an audience of 13 only, had it premier in the 2016 Anywhere Festival in an oddities shop and then had sold out shows in both the Melbourne and Adelaide fringe festivals in 2016 – 2017 in a sound studio and Carclew House a heritage listed building in Adelaide. Other shows produced and directed using his specific brand of site specific theatre was a romantic comedy called 2Across, set on a 1960’s Tram at the Brisbane Tramway Museum, Dial M for Murder and The Eight Reindeer Monologues, set in a 1940’s Queenslander house; and Venus in Fur stages in a music studio, tap studio and underground bar.

In 2018 he created a retro audio storytelling experience called the "The Radioplay Hour - Live” an interactive & staged 1950's radio broadcast, complete with live band & live sound effects, which utilized the heritage location known as Bankfoot House, found in the hinterland region of the Glass House Mountains, Sunshine Coast.

The Drama Merchant aims to be a site-specific theatre expert who collaborates with businesses in activating and creating intimate unique theatrical experiences, using spaces not traditionally viewed as a stage!
