Since childhood Lachlan has lived in other worlds, on different plains, navigating them via several mediums – performance, painting and the written word.
As artistic director of Sanctum Studio, Lachlan has written, designed, directed, performed in and produced many plays, live art events, puppet shows, roving acts and short films. Sanctum Theatre’s most recent productions include two collaborations with Little Projector Company: TRAIL OF LIGHTS (community-led light and lantern festival, 2019) and LANIMALS (short film, lanimals.org.au 2020); two collaborations with Magic Lantern Studio: THE MAN WHO CANNOT SLEEP (White Night 2018) and LIFE IS A CAROUSEL (Green Room Award 2017); a collaboration with Fusion Theatre: THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING (2019). Past works include Sanctum CABINET OF ANTIQUATED RECORDING DEVICES (2012), THE FERRYMAN AND HIS WIFE (American Independent Film Festival & Melbourne Underground Film Festival, 2010), WEALTH OF NATIONS (2009), THE PLAINS: A PLAY (2008), SILENT REVOLUTION (2007), LAMENT: CANDLES & COMPOST (2006). Sanctum Theatre also tours roving acts and puppet shows to festivals throughout Australia.
In 2018 Lachlan launched Sanctum Studio with his wife, Jasmine Powell. Sanctum Studio is a dynamic arts space in the north-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Lachlan won the 2012 Impress Prize for THE LOST JOURNALS OF PEDRO PISCATOR AND OTHER TALES, an eclectic illustrated collection of tall tales published by Impress Books. He has also taken part in several solo and group exhibitions, as well as creating street art, public art and community art for business, government and community-based clients, most notably LIFE ON PLANET DAISYWORLD (2015), a 30 x 10m street art mural in Fitzroy.
Lachlan also works for Snuff Puppets, an anarchic giant puppet company, performing in their shows and directing their People Puppet Projects in Australia, Denmark, Sweden, South Korea, Thailand, Brazil and Chile.

"Theatre is a space in which the waking mind can address its illness; where paradox isn't hypocrisy and mortality isn't ignored; it is a sanctuary where monstrous apparitions can be viewed at arms length and laughed at; it is the shared pretense of momentary madness..."
--Henrietta Kuscht (1929)
