THE ARTISTS

Madeleine Little
Madeleine Little is a performer, theatre maker, director and access consultant for the performing arts. Her recent credits include: Table Twelve (as co-writer with Alistair Baldwin, Metro Arts Creative Development program 2020), Hold (as playwright, director and performer, 2019), Intimate Space (as performer – Restless Dance Theatre for bleach* Festival in association with Festival 2018), Love Me; (as co-deviser, indelabilityarts 2017) and Look Mum… No Hands!

Keemon Williams
Keemon Williams is a queer interdisciplinary Meanjin (Brisbane) based artist of Koa, Kuku Yalanji and Meriam Mir descent. He utilizes a diverse range of mediums and performative elements to interrogate the relationships between location, personal histories, and the manifestation of culture in a postcolonial world. His practice seeks to critically examine facets of his identity and its intrinsic tethering to the wider context of being “Australian.” Responding to realms of architecture, cultural production and pseudo-ethnic representations, Keemon reconciles a sense of indigeneity and occupancy within the everyday.
