The Artist: Sarah-Jane Norman

S.J Norman is an interdisciplinary artist and writer, of Wiradjuri, Wonnarua and Anglo-Celtic ancestry, born on the sovereign lands of the Gadigal people. Their work traverses performance, installation, sculpture, text, video and sound. Norman’s primary medium is the body: the body as a spectacle of truth and a theatre of fantasy; a siphon of personal and collective memory; a site where histories, narratives, desires and discourses converge and collapse.

Performers:

Naretha Williams, Wiradjuri interdisciplinary artist and performer.

Carly Sheppard, a cross-disciplinary performance artist and choreographer and a descendent of the Wallangamma and Takalaka tribes.
