Malthouse Theatre Artistic Director, Matthew Lutton has collaborated with choreographer Stephanie Lake, and Sydney-based writer Emme Hoy to create a chilling adventure into the darkness featuring stage and screen star Pamela Rabe and Stephanie Lake Company dancers.
Pamela Rabe (The Testament of Mary, Wentworth) portrays a woman who goes searching for her sister in a sinkhole below Melbourne. Conjuring the journey deep into the cavern through haunting text, she encounters metaphoric monsters and a literal monster on the way down.
Three dancers—Olivia McPherson, Jessie Oshodi and James Vu Anh Pham—move in and out of the set, a dark and gaping cave, as they evoke images of what she sees in the dark.
With hit immersive production Because The Night currently performing across most of the main building of The Malthouse, the vast construction workshop has been converted into a fitting performance space for Monsters, providing audiences with an opportunity to explore new experiences on the site.
