THE COMPANY We strive to touch your hearts and break it a little as well.
WHO WE ARE Márquez Laundry is dedicated to research and the development of theatre. Our goal is to create stories in multiple visual theatre formats, combining music, movement, installation and dance.
The company is known for inventing stories “reaching into the deepest part of the psyche, hoping to stir, tap and awaken some sleeping giants inside” (Lisa Thatcher theatre reviewer).
WHAT WE DO We nurture artists and create work that is original, highly experimental and ensemble devised. We work with independent artists, explore a theme; take inspiration from film, art, photography and text turning this into visual poetry. We also repurpose everyday, sometimes neglected objects giving these raw materials, props, even food a new lease on life.
Marquez Laundry's vision is to continue to offer:
Research - residencies providing dramaturgical support, artistic research & development for artists across multiple disciplines to test out new or existing ideas and writing methods towards the creation of new work in site-specific or unthought of places..
Training - the opportunity to build a strong ensemble with rich vocabulary of movement, physical expression and improvisation.
Creation - a platform to produce published and unpublished works. We seek to work with writers and artists with BIG hearts and ideas.
We dream of:
Co-LAB - a centre for international collaboration among artists between Australia and other countries across the arts and creative industries with an interest in movement and theatre.
