Matthew Caffoe graduated University of Southern Queensland with a Bachelor of Theatre Arts: Major Acting in 2009. Throughout his time at USQ he performed lead roles in such plays as “Our Country’s Good”, “The Rimers of Eldritch”, Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, and Bertolt Brecht’s “Threepenny Opera”. During this time is where Matthew developed his passion for physical theatre – particularly the stylistic teachings of Meyerhold with bio-mechanics. On top of that Matthew focused a lot of his energy into Shakespeare’s collected works, studying most plays, and developing independent performances shown throughout the year as an extra-curricular activity to continue developing his craft in between performance seasons. Matthew worked internationally developing one-person shows in independent theatres, enjoyed a string of success working in the voice over industry, and worked intensely with Shake & Stir theatre company for three years. Since departing with Shake & Stir, Matthew has been teaching across Australia and operating his business Mashed Theatre.
