Fleur Murphy

Originally from country Victoria, Fleur has a B.A. in Theatre Performance from the University of Ballarat Arts Academy and a Masters in Writing for Performance at VCA.

Her short film Rain For Morgan won multiple awards around the world including Winner of “Best Narrative Short” (Festivus Film Festival Denver, Colorado 2011), Winner of “Best International Short Film Under 50mins” (Ireland International Film Festival 2010), and Winner of “Best Sound Achievement in a Short Film” (Australian Sound Guild Awards 2010).

Fleur’s first full-length play, Shadows of Angels premiered at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2012, and received further acclaim at the SheppARTon Arts Festival and the Owl and the Pussycat Theatre in Richmond in 2013. In October 2014 an exciting ‘immersive’ staging of the show was presented by TBC Theatre in partnership with The National Trust of Victoria. The show was staged within the gaol cells and exercise yards of Melbourne’s historic City Watch House. Shadows Of Angels was also short-listed for the Theatre503 Award in London. An excerpt from the piece also received Second Place in the Open Short Story category of the My Brother Jack Awards.

Fleur has been a writer in residence at the Old Melbourne Gaol through an initiative offered by Writers Victoria and the National Trust. This time was used to focus on writing and developing As We Come To Wake and concluded with a workshop and public reading at the Old Melbourne Gaol in July 2014.

In 2016 she was commissioned along with 11 other emerging and established playwrights to develop a short play that was presented as part of Vessel Arts Play For Australia. The writers included Patricia Cornelius, John Romeril, Maysa Abhouzeid, Candy Bowers, Tania Canas, Emilie Collyer, Ross Mueller, Fleur Murphy, Kamarra Bell-Wykes, Deborah Leiser-Moore, John Kachoyan and Chi Vu and was presented at the Arts Centre.

Fleur is a founding member of TBC Theatre, and has also enjoyed working with the award winning teams at Octopod Films and Ready To Roll on their various creative and corporate projects.
