IMMERSIVE THEATRE LIKE NO OTHER

all sorts productions was established in 2018 with a vision to immerse the audience in a full sensory experience, were audiences would have a unique fly on the wall perspective.

Our aim is to set the shows in an ultra realistic settings to transport the audience member to the time and place in which the play is set. Gone are the plush red seats, the lights and stage to audience relationship, to a fully realistic setting were the location is minimally touched for a fully immersed experience. 

all sorts productions' Founder and Artistic Director Maurice Mammoliti has worked most of his life in the independent theatre sector and dedicates his time to this passion of producing unique theatre and other expressive art forms. But this could not be done without the brilliants of the creative team, Actors, amazing locations and all supporters of the arts .

meet our founder

Maurice has a Bachelor of Performing Arts and has studied directing and performance at Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). Maurice’s relentless pursuit to embrace artistic opportunities saw him immerse himself fully in Melbourne’s Independent Theatre sector for over 10 years.

 

Maurice's expanding repertoire include acting in film and TV along with working for the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) in Production Management and Set Design. Maurice further training include in-depth exploration of Stanislavski, Adler and Meisner techniques at the Melbourne Actors Lab and Howard Fine Studios. This further training transformed Maurice’s performance ability, and while he continued to work as an actor began to discover the pull of directing to be much, much stronger. Maurice started to direct shorts plays, fashion films and the award winning Fan Film "The Resurgence" Revolving Door Productions.

 

“I realised that even though I loved to act it wasn’t giving me all I needed and with all my knowledge gained over the years felt that I was better suited to creating art from the ground up. I wanted to put on plays that “I” wanted to, but in a unique way.

 

I found that directing actors was something I was good at. Coming from an acting background I consider myself an actors’ director and being able to cast the right actors for roles and because of my quest for truth in a performance and attention to detail to bring out their best ability feed me creatively.”

 

And so, all sorts productions was born.

 

all sorts productions’ inaugural show was one of Maurice’s favourite plays, The Importance of Being Earnest, reimagined at one of Melbourne’s most historical venues, Labassa Mansion in Caulfield North. The sold-out 2019 season saw audience members fully immersed in the period: a culmination of Maurice’s years’ of set design, production and acting experience.

 

“It’s my aim to not only entertain as I always wanted to, but to give the audience a unique experience of immersion that they won’t forget”.
