Jarrod Duffy Is Not Dead
Exploring the mythos of their own beginning...the pros and cons of this invasion and the framing of this deliciously voyeuristic conundrum are explored with theatrical precision par excellence..."

Jarrod Duffy Is Not Dead is a devised work by the performance collective Applespiel. Jarrod Duffy was the ninth member of Applespiel, who studies with the group at the University of Wollongong. In October 2010, two weeks before performing an Honours show, he disappeared, leaving behind the furniture at his house and no explanation. Phone, email and facebook yielded no results.
Jarrod Duffy Is Not Dead is the story of that disappearance and Applespiel's hunt to find their missing friend.
