Award-winning cabaret 'Creatures of the Deep' coming to Moat Festival

Creatures of the Deep is an award-winning cabaret written, produced, and performed by La Trobe Student Theatre and Film alumni.

This exciting performance has been named on the bill for this year’s Moat Festival – the annual showcase of exceptional emerging talent at La Trobe University. Moat Festival 2019 marks the 35th annual festival held at the university.

Creatures of the Deep takes the audience on a journey beneath the surface to meet the plethora of beautiful, wild sea creatures who are given a voice to share their unique perspective beneath the waves. This documentary-style cabaret showcases some of the strongest talent to come out of La Trobe Student Theatre and Film in recent years.

The show, by production company Picked Last for Sport, was awarded Best Cabaret in the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

They’ve also been nominated for three Green Room Awards for Creatures of the Deep, in the cabaret category, including best ensemble, best original songs, and best production.

Picked Last For Sport is a new production company, co-founded by Ryan Smith and Sarah Wall, that aims to create environmentally sustainable and educational theatre and film.

Creatures of the Deepis currently showing as part of the Sustainable Living Festival from the 20 to 23 of February at the Butterfly Club.

Catch the award-winning cabaret at the La Trobe Student Theatre and Film official launch of Moat Festival 2019 on Friday 1 March at 6pm in the Menzies Theatre.
