About the artists

Harriet Gillies is an award-winning performance artist working across a range of performance modes. She has completed artist residencies with Robert Wilson at the Watermill Centre and Marina Abramović at Kaldor Public Art Projects, as well as solo residencies with La Serre: Arts Vivants in Montreal, and the Bearded Tit in Sydney. Her performances have been presented across Australia, New Zealand, and North America. Her most recent solo performance, The Power of the Holy Spirit, won the Best Experimental Show Award at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and had 2 sell-out seasons at the Flying Nun in Sydney. in 2020, Harriet made a new digital performance with collaborator Xanthe Dobbie in a new partnership between Griffin Theatre Company and Google Creative Labs that went on to be presented at 2021 Sydney Festival.

Solomon Thomas is a theatre maker and performer currently situated in Sydney. He explores the intersection between the physical and digital in theatre, experimenting with how theatre and film can co-exist in a live context. He works as a performer, puppeteer, theatre maker and video designer and is driven by how these practices meet formally. He graduated with BCA Honours in Performance from the University of Wollongong in 2013 and for the past six years has been actively engaged in creating and performing work for both independent and main stage theatre. He is a core member of re:group performance collective, Monday Night Cards and Woodcourt Art Theatre. Solomon is currently a puppeteer with Erth Visual & Physical Inc (2014-19) and has toured with them throughout the UK, UAE, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and Japan.

Alexi Creecy is a multi-disciplinary effects and props artist working out of Sydney Australia. Specialising in effects that involve the human body as inspiration or a canvas Alexi has created an array of objects and images to intrigue, fool, and horrify audiences both on stage and on screen. With a background in traditional manufacturing techniques, Alexi has since begun developing a stronger digital skillset to both augment or even replace many of his previous analogue techniques. This delicate combination of the two worlds we all now live in, is the realm in which Alexi hopes to develop his creative energy and his final products solving traditional effects problems, using modern techniques and technology.
