Time’s slipping away, days are melting into each other, when did we last go outside?!?…
But no worries, ‘Everything is Fine’!
The Melbourne University Law Revue is an annual sketch comedy show written, directed, and performed by students, and has entertained audiences for over 68 years.
This year, we’re screwing the theatre tradition and presenting a ten-part web series following a period in isolation with the cast. Filmed across Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, and Dubai, the sketch show will give an insight into what happens when you leave a bunch of 20-somethings alone in iso…

Presented by Floor Work
“There was an undercurrent, some other part of me pulling the strings.”
Three people fight three monsters that have intruded into their bedrooms. They call for help, and find that it comes from unexpected places. Facet is an original physical theatre film, born from the creative interpretations of three student-written monologues.
“Needs fill the room like balloons, jostling for space.”
Facet is an experiment in interweaving theatre devising and film processes. Rehearsals took place remotely through Zoom, under the direction of Reis Low and the mentorship of Suzie Hardgrave. Floor Work would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which this production was made possible; we acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation, and the Māori peoples who are the tangata whenua of Aotearoa. Sovereignty of so-called Australia and Aotearoa were never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and to all Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Māori peoples.
“The water becomes blocked unless a rock is moved.”
Watch Facet any time from 18 November – 20 December 2020, or join us for the Opening Night Launch Party! We will be welcoming Facet into the world with a watch party and a Q&A session with the cast and crew, so come and meet your friends online and help us celebrate the continued production of art in these challenging times.

Have you wrapped your ears around PRESS CLUB’s second album Wasted Energy – released into the world last year? Thanks to UMSU Activities you’ll get a chance to lap up awesome sounds from this delight, as well as their debut album, Late Teens.
⏰ From 1-2pm on Thursday 5 November
🎶 Tune in at 1pm by clicking on the Live video which will appear on the UMSU Activities Facebook page. We’ll also share it in the Facebook event.
👀 Get warmed up at the Press Club Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQVbFNzlagKr_oAIG3eBzZw
WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT PRESS CLUB 👇🏽
From conception in a garage in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick, Press Club are the musical embodiment of the attitude of a generation experiencing impermanence in every way.
Wasted Energy landed at #4 in the AIR album chart and #15 on the ARIA Australian Album chart, Press Club’s sonic calling cards are all present on Wasted Energy; the fuzzaddled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the razor sharp guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, not to forget the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster.
Wasted Energy approaches the microphone through a lens of extrospection. It examines the negative behaviours in the world around us and how we’re all learning to exist in today’s ever-evolving socio-moral landscape. It is broadly about change, and life’s watershed moments that change its course. These shifts are laterally represented lyrically and sonically in many of its songs. As seen in single, ‘THINKING ABOUT YOU’ which scored an addition at triple j and landed on a bevy of Spotify playlists (New Music Friday in the US, UK, Aus & NZ, amongst others).
Wasted Energy follows on from acclaimed debut album, Late Teens. Fuelled by debut single, the buzz-saw guitar laden, ‘HEADWRECK’, which received loyal attention from music lovers and radio alike – landing high rotation at Australia’s triple j and Fbi radio.
