Last Man to Die, the cross artform collaboration of Hanna Cormick (actor), Benjamin Forster (artist) and Charles Martin (percussionist), was founded in late 2008 during their collaboration with Canberra's Hunting Season on the work Cognition performed at Belconnen Theatre and The Street Theatre (Canberra) as well as La Mama Theatre (Melbourne). A revised version was featured in Charles Martin's Master of Music recitals at the ANU School of Music (Canberra).

In 2009, Last Man to Die were invited to participate in The Street Theatre's Made in Canberra season, producing Vital LMTD, a cross-disciplinary response to the creation and definition of life.

In 2010, supported by the A.C.T. Government's ArtsACT organisation, Last Man to Die are developing and performing their long-planned-for work - The Last Man to Die, an installation/performance exploring the possible consequences of indefinite extension of human life. 

The Last Man to Die was shown as a work in progress at Belconnen Theatre on 12th March 2010 and Last Man to Die is currently pursuing opportunities for development and performance of this work throughout 2010 and into the future.
