Luke Murphy's Attic Projects


written and directed by Luke Murphy
music by Rob Moloney

starring Luke Murphy and Will Thompson

Volcano is a new work that is part theatre, part mini– series and part dance all wrapped in the tapestry of an unfolding sci–fi thriller.

Two characters exist in a living room in disrepair and without a door, where they recreate the greatest hits of old lives – a night at a rave, a favourite game show, an 80’s music video – both passing the time and quietly clinging to distant memories of a life out of reach.

As the narrative unfolds the uncertainties of the scenario come into more extreme focus. How long have they been there, and why? What is the world they have been shut off from?

Performed over four episodes, Volcano can be enjoyed individually or as a series, live or online.

In person tickets on sale Friday 16 July, 10am. Tickets to watch online will be available at a later date.
