Thanks WOW Festival and Vulcana Circus and for the opportunity to perform in the 2020 Brisbane Festival. DomestiCITY – A Roof Over Our Heads focused on Re-thinking Housing – Eliminating Homelessness.
I recently had the pleasure and privilege to participate in a creative development on new show “Vertigo” with Compagnie Lumière Fugitive in Vila Nova de Cerveira, northern Portugal. It was inspiring, fun and productive.
I am delighted to announce that GUSH won the 2017 Matilda Award for Best Costume Design for MONSTERIA.
We were also nominated for Best Circus Physical Theatre.

A new creative project I am part of:
GUSH is a new feminist circus ensemble made up of 4 highly experienced women of circus. We use the repertoire of circus and the theatricality of contemporary performance to explore the way the performing feminine body is read and misread. The circus is unconventional and the performance is daring, ranging from the rebellious to the ridiculous.
Very much looking forward to performing in MONSTERIA with GUSH, Nov 30-Dec 3 during Brisbane Powerhouse’s Wonderland Festival. MONSTERIA is directed by Celia White and the performers are the wonderful Mayu Muto, Bianca Mackail and I.

In December 2011, James Cunningham, Suzon Fuks, Skye Nicholls, Jeff Turpin, Anna Yen, created ‘Phoenix Rising’ for the Folkloric Stage at Woodford Folk Festival.
Through Chinese wushu (broadsword, fans) and physical / visual images, Phoenix Rising evokes a woman’s quest for freedom and transformation. Phoenix Rising is inspired by inner journeys reflected in outer physical actions.
How do we come from fear to freedom?
What is the part of courage, humour and travelling companions?
