I would like to simply open a new document instead, but cannot find an option for this.

Is there any way for me to set Keynote to default to creating a new presentation, instead of defaulting to opening an existing one?

This is determined by the ‘NSShowAppCentricOpenPanelInsteadOfUntitledFile’ key. Setting this preference to false will show the new document view by default.

defaults write com.apple.iWork.Keynote NSShowAppCentricOpenPanelInsteadOfUntitledFile -bool false

If you would like a new document to open with a set theme instead of with the theme chooser, go to Keynote Preferences and set For New Documents: Use theme.
