Joachim Matschoss


Joachim Matschoss, born in Germany, now living in Melbourne/Australia. He is a playwright, poet and Theatre-maker. His Theatre Company, ‘Backyard Theatre Ensemble (BYTE)’ presents diverse pieces of theatre nationally and internationally. Joachim has created theatre in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, India, Uzbekistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Hungary, Taiwan, Switzerland and China. Joachim is fascinated by creating work from scratch and is less interested in seeing a piece of theatre grow like a flower, but more so like a weed, something raw, something with cracks, and something that is challenging both the performer and the audience member. Joachim’s poetry is published in Australia, Germany, the United Kingdom and the USA. He published a travel journal in Australia (Away with me) and a novel in the USA (Dead River Oaks). A book about theatre and travel (Rain Overnight) has been published in India.
