HUMAN ANIMAL EXCHANGE, MALTHOUSE AND PERFORMING LINES THEY SAW A THYLACINE BY JUSTINE CAMPBELL AND SARAH HAMILTON WRITTEN BY Justine Campbell Sarah Hamilton On an unseasonably cold September day in 1936, the world’s last known Tasmanian Tiger died in captivity at Hobart’s Beaumaris Zoo. PERFORMERS Justine Campbell Sarah Hamilton ARTISTIC COLLABORATOR Mathew Lutton Out of the darkness, Sarah Hamilton and Justine Campbell conjure the ghost of one of our lost beauties – the thylacine. With the suspense and warmth of a campfire story, these feisty, funny women weave a lyrical tale of discovery and destruction. SET & LIGHTING DESIGN Matt Adey For this thylacine tracker and zoo keeper’s daughter, it’s a quest to protect a threatened creature…and themselves. SOUND DESIGN Jethro Woodward Gutsy and rebellious, this beautiful reimagining of Australia’s lost history shines a light on extinction and our own survival. COSTUME DESIGN Chloe Greaves PRODUCER Performing Lines & Malthouse Theatre PRODUCTION MANAGER Liz Young HUMAN ANIMAL EXCHANGE was founded by Justine Campbell and Sarah Hamilton in 2011 and has successfully produced three shows, two of which have toured nationally and internationally.
