ArtKeeper 2024: Lachlan Woods

Lachlan is an actor, theatre maker and photographer.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Dramatic Arts from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2009. He most recently played Draco Malfoy in the Australian production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre. His other credits span more than a decade across television, film and mainstage theatre. He was previously an artistic associate of the award winning physical theatre ensemble OpticNerve Performance Group. In 2015, Lachlan was granted the opportunity through the Ian Potter Cultural Trust to undertake training with renowned Shakespeare and voice educator Kristin Linklater at her centre in Orkney, Scotland. He's also been privileged to train under Larry Moss and Patsy Rodenburg.

As a photographer, Lachlan trained at Photography Studies College. His photography practice centres on portraiture and the private moments, preparation and ritual that precede performance.

Lachlan is our first every Storyteller-in-Residence within the ArtKeeper program. This will see him uncover and tell the stories from behind the scenes of ArtKeeper, in tandem with pursuing his own artist-led project.

#The project

During his time in the ArtKeeper program, Lachlan is writing, producing, directing and performing in the pilot episode of an original audio drama set in a apartment in Burleigh Heads. The pilot is part of a multi episode noir mystery series that follows a man trying to deal with the loss of his wife while becoming embroiled in a missing person cold case that spans time and continents, from the fall of Singapore in 1942 to the 1970s Gold Coast.
