Part of

MELT Festival


Glittery rogues The Good Room invite you to lay down your love at their purpose-built chapel – a petal-strewn fever-dream that draws its inspiration from ancient altars, Dolly Parton, Hallmark schmaltz and Vegas neon.

This towering tabernacle is open to one and all during MELT, and the only tithe required is a tiny piece of your own heart.

Join the congregation and contribute to this live shrine, as together we build an effigy to love in all its guises – explicit, unrequited, painfully broken or gloriously – impossibly – full.

The Good Room is a Queensland-based performance collective who use the anonymous experiences of ordinary people to create extraordinary theatre works.

Asking people to anonymously share with fragments and memories, confessions and admissions from their lives, as part of a process that blurs the line between ‘audience’ and ‘maker’ to play with the idea of theatrical collective authorship.

Theirs is an investigation of empathy, connectedness, stakes and sacrifice. This expresses itself in an aesthetic world that is both dark and light matter; a dichotomy of spectacle and depth. Mirrorballs, rose petals, panda suits and party dresses stud their theatrical universe but totems of party, play and celebration are often subverted; this is richly affirmative, highly contemporary, and widely accessible theatre – underpinned by rigour, ethics, and deep consideration.

The Good Room is comprised of an ensemble of diverse makers with practices that span film through visual art. They are Lauren Clelland, Daniel Evans, Amy Ingram and Kieran Swann…and enjoy frequent collaborations with Caroline Dunphy, Lawrence English, Jason Glenwright and Leah Shelton.
