Julius Caesar

"I love the name of honour more than I fear death"


Contemporary civilisation as we know it has collapsed. Amidst the ruins and dust, a group of storytellers present Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to examine where humanity went wrong.

This electrifying reimagining thrusts Shakespeare’s classic into the twenty-first century.

Director Jo Loth powerfully integrates her backgrounds in cabaret, physical theatre and Shakespearean performance, and joins forces with Matilda award-winning designer Angel Kosch, to deliver a chilling premonition of humanity’s future. The performance features an original soundscape, evocative movement and a stellar ensemble cast including Lucinda Shaw (Silver Sircus) and Rainee Skinner (ABC’s The Wayne Manifesto).



Jo Loth has succeeded admirably. We are in a dystopian Mad Max world on a stripped-down stage… Cassius and Brutus emerge and the machinations of the plot start to evolve in a skilfully edited 95-minute version of the text … Ear-splitting static accompanied the frenzied stabbing of Caesar (a brutally poetic scene), while music punctuated the action.

Peter Pinne – Stage Whispers

Loth delves into the most delicate aspects of the human psyche… it feels like a precious gift is being given to the audience.
