Hope you can make this incredible performance extravaganza throughout June  2021 here in Kyneton. It’s been a thrill to work with the Metanoia Theatre Company and be part of this presentation. 

My role as visual curator is to reimagine the museum, its collection, so that each room becomes a performance space, where objects are enlivened with human interaction. 

 'Over the last few decades Museum’s (across the globe) have addressed colonialism, in all its forms, however there has been a divide between those in the metro centres and those outside, particularly in regional areas. Our theatre production ‘Museum Undone’ attempts to redress this through, performance, dance and installation art, questioning what role do regional museums  play in shaping local stories (past and future) and their inherent relationship to wider national conversation’.
