Lachlan has worked with Polyglot since 2008, forging beautiful and rewarding connections with artists and children at home and across the globe. He has swum in deep seas of Tangle, built countless cities from boxes, made towering mountains and winding patterns with crumbs as a giant Ant, and turned up the volume on kids voices far and wide through Voice Lab.

Outside of Polyglot, Lachlan produces videos and music for various arts companies including ArtPlay and Melbourne Fringe. In 2019, he puppeteered a giant dancing crab and marine iguana for the premiere performance of The Waterhole, based on Graeme Base picture book, at Melbourne Zoo’s Neon Playground, and took the helm of A Blanck Canvas’ The Guardian, a giant crystal lion, for its world premiere at White Night 2019.

Recently, Lachlan has been touring the country as Australia’s favourite Dad, Bandit, in the stage spectacular Bluey’s Big Play, which he helped develop with Windmill Theatre’s Rose Myers.

Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
