Production Artwork – Malthouse Theatre


The Sisters Hayes were commissioned to create a cohesive suite of production artwork for Malthouse Theatre’s 2015 season – spanning dance, theatre, exploratory works and public programs. Our imagery had to reflect Malthouse Theatre’s commitment to risk and rigour, while being as bold and playful as the programming.

We worked with photographer Andrew Gough and actors to capture original imagery, which we heavily treated – hand-tinted, deconstructed, and collaged with paint, graphics and found material. The result is a series of intricate, multi-layered pieces reflective of the unique themes and tones of each production, while functioning as a cohesive set through the rich striking palettes.
