Problem Play is Matthew Moore’s third short film, and was the recipient of the Screen Australia Hot Shots grant. It tells the story of a young actress who is struggling to come to terms with playing the role of Viola in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. As the rehearsal process throws her ever deeper into the the role, her own life begins to mirror her characters dilemma. As the demands of the role begin to shake the very foundations of who she is, a transformative new beginning emerges.
A blend of interactive media and burlesque, Burn is an anarchic cabaret, a cacophony of mobile phone ringtones and a strictly choreographed dance by an under-rehearsed ensemble. A collaboration between Lucille Spielfuchs and Grant Moxom.
A full-length show; the result of a seven month residency/devised work examining the desire in humans to want to see magic and believe fiction. An interactive, installation, performative labyrinth-like experience with high visual stimuli playing gently with human psychology.
The orange room was one part of an installation in which audience members received different stories for what the scene was about e.g “they just had a fight” “they hadn’t eaten for three days” urging the audience to make up the rest of the story by watching the actors carry out tasks.

WEIGHT OF LIGHT
2014, 2016, and 2018
By Rys Votano: Chromatzia is part of the Photo-chromatzia experiments. The main objective is to see what forms can be created using colour and the long exposure.
We have worked on three pieces for this video series.
Performed by Lucille Spielfuchs and Miss Moontang. Based on the wonderful world of, Australian artist, May Gibbs. Finally the Gumnut duo comes to life, shimming and shaking all the way from Australia’s bush lands are the Gumnut Girls, the Wattle Babes, the golden greens of Australia’s wildlife. Complete with rouged bottoms, this 1920s duo know how to clown around and Charleston the night away.
A co devised and developed interactive performance art piece inspired by on keyboard culture. Examining the nature of people’s decision making when they are anonymous. This performance had volunteer viewers come into a private room and play a live video game of the performer (with camera and headphones on) walking around the space. The viewer is in complete control of the performer and their actions from far away.
A result of a semester of work on collaborative performance making at UNSW. This work was a durational performance piece with 5 performers that would cycle through the routine of tying each other up, escaping, climbing to the mezzanine, and throwing water bombs at the next entrapped person, only to then begin the cycle again.
Originally a treat for Dr Sketchys; this cross-dressing,gender bending duo are armed with badminton rackets, beards and bloomers. Straight out of the twisted Victorian days, these powdered creatures play some sports and verse the audience in a giant badminton match- part on stage, part off. The absurdity is performed with Sister Ursuline.
Performed solo Piece with art direction by Russall Beattie for his renowned ‘Batman Follies of 1929’ show.
