Ashton Malcolm | Artist
Ashton Malcolm is a theatre-maker based in Adelaide. She graduated from Flinders University Drama Centre in 2009, with First Class Honours, the Malcolm Fox Drama Prize and a University Medal. Since then she has worked as a performer and devisor on film and theatre, both independently and with established companies.
Some of her collaborations with established companies include Brink Theatre Company: Harbinger (2009); Patch Theatre Company: Sturt Street Primary Workshop Artist (2014); Vitalstatistix Theatre Company: Cutaway: A Ceremony (2013), Future Present (2014) Adhocracy (as MC, 2015); Vitalstatistix and HotHouse Theatre: Quiet Faith (2014/2015); STCSA: Desdemona in Othello (2014).
Most recently Ashton has formed an art making collective with visual/installation artist Meg Wilson
and performance maker Josephine Were. The trio recently premiered new endurance work, You Will Only Ever Be Any Good If You Can Run The Marathon, as part of the CACSA OzAsia Opening (September, 2015) and Christmas House (at FeltSpace, December 2015). One of their upcoming collaborations is Sometimes I… , a punk feminist sleep-over for 9-13 year olds, which is currently in development with the assistance of Arts SA.
Ashton is also looking forward to performing with Tiny Bricks in Deluge, which will premiere in the Adelaide Festival in 2016.
