Alex Tálamo is a director and deviser who works across visual, live and media arts. Her practice engages a process of slow dramaturgy, often working with ensembles and encouraging a multiplicity of voices within a single work. Conceptually, her work investigates outsider identities, including migrant and feminist perspectives, and is always responsive to contemporary political frameworks. Alex studied at VCA, completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Performance Creation (Animateuring, 2012). She has been the recipient of Australia Council’s Cultural Leaders of the Future (2011) and two international study tours through the Ian Potter Foundation and Art Start (2013). Her work has been shown at Performance Studies International (2016), Metanoia’s Live Works program (2015), and Activism month at FCAC (2016). She is an Artistic Director at The DIG Collective and has curated two seasons of the experimental theatre festival, Unprovoked (2013).
Snout In Souliloquy is a continuing international digital theatre project celebrating artistic connection and collaboration across the world.
