Monash CTP’s incredible 3rd year production Death Match opens at the Malthouse Theatre TONIGHT with a 7pm start!
This incredible show from Director: Katrina Cornwell and Writer: Morgan Rose is an explosive new work of physical theatre, which tackles the big issues – life, death and ambition – against the backdrop of a sporting arena
We caught-up with Costume Designer Amy Porter for a quick chat this week in between the craziness that was bump-in
Here’s what she had to say about Death Match:-
Can you tell us in your own words a little about Death Match?
An explosive new work psychically and visually. Pushing the boundaries of theatre and sport
What is your role in this production?
What has been the best part of being involved in this production?
Getting to work in a professional environment which pushes my own experience in design
What has been the most challenging?
How have you grown as a costume designer after this process?
I’ve grown in many ways, both mentally and creatively. I’ve learnt how to work with difficult materials and learnt how to change design ideas under pressure in a short amount of time.
Why should people come to see Death Match?
To support their cohort (Tickets are free for Monash students) and to see an awesome show
In just 3 words describe death Match to those who don’t know it!
Intense. Sweaty. Fast
Sounds great – be sure to grab your tickets now
REMEMBER: If you can’t win, what’s the point
