The Influencing Machine
Devised by Blake Eaton in collaboration with Jesse Northam and Samantha Winsor.
Amuse yourself to death…..
Based on the ‘The Origin of the Influencing Machine in Schizophrenia” written by psychoanalyst Victor Tausk, this production proves that the diabolical influencing machine still lives on. Almost a hundred years after Tausk warned of paranoid delusions associated with mind control, the influencing machine has not abated but strengthened, moving from being a figment of the imagination to a very real, very dangerous little device known as “the small black box.”
Follow Winston and Julia as the teenagers desperately try to find each other in a world overrun by the machine.
Falling To Pieces
Devised by Carla Spoto in collaboration with Alisha Rasmussen, Melanie Ham and Luke Shepherd.
Love can drive you crazy
What is so good about love and why do we all desire it? Who hasn’t been in love, wants love or has lost love? If your love was taken from you, what would you do to get it back? Would you rather live a life heartbroken with the possibility of moving on and starting fresh, or would you find the pain so excruciating that the only way out is in death, believing that in death you would finally be set free?
Falling to Pieces is a movement based work based on personal experiences with both passion and heartache.
from The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised]
Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield
It’s Shakespeare on a diet!
Ever wondered what Hamlet would be like without the long monologues and soliloquies? Watch as three ambitious actors take you on a fast paced, action filled, comedic version of Hamlet, without all the boring bits. Full of sword fights, death scenes, ghosts, revenge, murder, poison, maidens and of course “alas poor Yorick”, it’s the funniest tragedy Shakespeare never wrote.
By arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd, on behalf of Paradigm New York.
Based on the bestselling children’s book You Are Special by Max Lucardo
Devised by Emily Sulzberger in collaboration with Rob Carne, Jesse Northam, Sam Flack, Rosa Sullivan and Peter Allison
For the little wood people who live in Wemmick-ville, everyday is about what sort of sticker you get. If you’re pretty and talented you’ll get a gold star, but if you’re chipped, awkward or accident prone, then an ugly grey dot is your reward. For poor Punchinello, grey dots are all he can expect. And with the Festival of Stickers looming ahead, all hope of winning the Most Stars Award has disappeared. What’s worse, Punchinello seems doomed to scoop up the only award nobody wants, the Most Dots award. If only there was someone who could fix him…..
Written & Directed by Kirsten Tolley.
When Kelly and Xue Ling Qiao try to fit in at their new school, they must decide whether to hold fast to, or completely abandon their culture and interests. One chooses to abandon their past and blend in, while the other refuses to give up the one thing that makes them happy. Why is a tragic story about belonging, cultural identity and the difficulties one might face if they are deemed ‘too different’.
The evening will provide an opportunity for you to get an in-depth insight into the course structure of our Master of Counselling, Graduate Diploma of Counselling and new Graduate Certificate in Counselling.
The night is conducted by our dedicated counselling staff with the Head of Counselling Dr Marie-Therese Proctor speaking about the course and interviewing some of our current students about their experience.

With the universe at their fingertips, besties Hazel and Ruby peel back layers of the universe to chase their outrageous dreams and relive childhood memories. Only Hazel understands the dimension of time travel so Ruby’s left anticipating her own memories. As Hazel leads the way, these two divas make history together by challenging the speed of light, buying and selling their own time and dancing their way into adulthood. Although making it through one black hole, another tragedy encroaches and threatens their friendship. We see just how deep into outer space they are willing to go for each other, for love.
