Come to play, come to win or don’t come at all

I don’t know when I first saw it / In a memory, a premonition, or a dream.
It was a house and it was on fire / I was the house and I was on fire.


A suburban netball team. A new player. Cass says she wants to fit in but if she won't play by their rules why does she bother coming at all? She claims to see something they cannot, a warning of sorts. All the other women want to do is play. But this player will push each of them to a point of furious revelation. Nothing will be left on the court once these women are done with their reckoning.

A sweaty play about the petty and the profound, the mundane and the mythic, Contest asks how we might be with each other if we don’t have to win.

Contest is presented in association with New Working Group and Bureau of Works
Contest was originally commissioned by Malthouse Theatre through the support of the Malcolm Robertson Foundation. It was seeded through Malthouse Theatre’s Besen Family Artist Program, and developed through the City of Yarra Performance Investigations Program. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. The production is supported by the Besen Family Foundation.

When Icebergs Burn by The Wolves Theatre Company Inc
Thursday, 2 August - Sunday, 19 August

In an effort to become the father she needs Lazarus has abducted his ice addicted daughter who is on the run from a horrific crime, but with her against him, the police after them and only one crazy, impossible plan, will a love, badly damaged by their history, be enough?

Fresh from the pen of Melbourne’s most exciting new playwright, Michael Griffith, comes an intense, gripping and heartfelt thriller, that will hold you from the opening scene to the last word. After he wrote it, he sent it to the esteemed director Aarne Neeme and asked for his advice. His advice was, 'I’m coming down to direct it.'

Presented by Darebin Speakeasy & Lab Kelpie

As the extinction of the human race looms, three women cycle for our lives.

An exciting contemporary work blending narrative, durational exertion, science and technology, Oil Babies explores the complexities of our relationship to both climate change and the female body.

Blending lyrical, rapid-fire text with poetic imagery and domestic drama, Oil Babies is a dangerous, pithy and at times comedic work that speaks directly to the concerns we hold now.

Written and directed by Petra Kalive and featuring an all-female cast, Oil Babies re-positions our lives as one on the precipice of a planet dramatically changing – and perhaps the moment before our own extinction.

Writer & Director: Petra Kalive
Movement Director: Xanthe Beesley
Assistant Director: Lyall Brooks
Set & Costume Design: Andrew Bailey
Sound Design & Compositions: Darius Kedros
Lighting Design: Andy Turner
Stage & Production Manager: Christa Johnathan
