“Punters to Dwell are checked-in to the ‘rustic’ and ‘charming’ hotel Dwell by the manager, played with delightful, creepy awkwardness by Maddy Grant, crocs and all.  Maddy has been honing her clowning skills over a number of years, and this really shines through in her commitment and obsessive love of her favourite room.”

 Adam Wood, Nothing Ever Happens in Brisbane

“Humour is peppered throughout, most overtly through the scenes featuring the motel’s idiosyncratic and increasingly eccentric manager (Maddy Grant) in shuffle into the room.”

Meredith Walker, Blue Curtains Brisbane

Nautical but Nice

“My personal favourites were Ethel the middle-aged mermaid and her lady-crab companion, who entertained the crowd by throwing fish at them and general heckling the hell out of people.”

Resting Bitch Face

“The four performers making up ‘Resting B*tch Face’ demonstrate the pressures of being a woman in the modern world through a series of very physical vignettes….with strong women pushing physical and cultural limits to a killer (’90s-inspired, pro-women) soundtrack…This was a fabulous, thought-provoking and fun show, get along to see them next time they’re playing!”

“Madeleine Grant literally wrestles with herself, her makeup, and a range of office items matched with superb deadpan skills.”


“The women are strong and sure and fast. They tumble and roll at lightning-fast speed. There are a lot of curious and interesting group acro-balances, feet placed upon chests and backs…the performers are comfortable and intimate with each other, and claim the space with confidence.”
