Mary Angley (she/they) is an emerging theatre-maker and a recent graduate from the Victorian College of the Arts’ Master of Directing program. She is currently working on Kaurna land. A child of The Internet, in her practice she reveres the unique properties of both live and digital performance. Mary cut her directorial teeth working with Symposium Productions and The Raw Shakespeare Project. She received First Class Honours from Flinders University for her practice-led research project: an immersive adaptation of Timon of Athens. For her Masters Showcase, she developed a new work, Hedda GablerGablerGabler, exploring how game-play can be used to disrupt gender biases in the theatrical canon. After graduating, she created LEAR: A Livestream, a durational, digital performance exploring notions of artistry, privilege, and productivity in the age of Covid-19. In 2019, she created Paper Mouth Theatre as a forum for bringing together emerging creatives to work on experimental projects within a Queer, Feminist framework.
Currently, she is touring her new solo performance, Grief Lightning: A Satire in 78 Slides, while readying herself for a residency at the University of Melbourne’s Science Gallery.
