Martyn Coutts

Martyn Coutts is a performance maker, dramaturg, video design and lecturer.

Martyn grew up in nipaluna/Hobart in lutruwita/Tasmania on palawa lands. He now lives and works on Wurundjeri lands of the Kulin nation in Narrm/Melbourne.

Martyn’s creative work brings audiences and performance into relation with each other, beyond the traditional bounds of the theatre. These digital dramaturgies place the body at the centre of expansive, immersive experiences which aim to connect us to a greater understanding of our world and ourselves.

Martyn's projects have been shown extensively throughout Australia and internationally. He has taken a strong interest in creative links between Australia and the Asia-Pacific having shown work in Taiwan, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and New Zealand.

Martyn trained at the Victorian College of the Arts and holds an MA with First Class Honours from RMIT. He lectures in Digital Media and Projection at the University of Melbourne.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita / Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
