Biography: Ebony is a transgender, queer, disabled multidisciplinary artist living and working predominantly on Wurundjeri Land. Their practise focuses on their lived experience, preferring to explore theme rather than narrative with a particular passion for creating pieces that resonate with their queer and disabled communities. 

They have nearly a decade’s experience working in live audio and vision production, and have worked extensively with Australia’s most esteemed live performance companies, including Opera Australia, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Theatre Company, The Australian Ballet, Ilbijerri Theatre Company, Melbourne International Arts Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival. Music highlights include Fuji Rock Festival in Niigata, Japan, Splendour in The Grass, Meredith Music Festival and Fairgrounds Festival. Additionally, Ebony has a passion for their local music community, judging the esteemed Music Victoria Awards and co-running a music festival entitled HOLLER Fest, championing the contributions of women and gender diverse people in the local music industry. 

Ebony’s art practise intertwines their love of technology and sound with their investigations into experimental writing and performance art. They have a keen interest in creating abstract worlds that sit at the juxtaposition of performance art and technology, mixing their technological background with their creative output. They are extremely interested in the breakdown of theatrical conventions and how modern technology and the ancient art of live performance can coexist and emphasise experience and meaning. Ebony’s work has been supported by Creative Victoria, Regional Arts Victoria, Port Philip City Council and Melbourne Fringe Festival. They have twice been a participant of the Antipodes Theatre Company Winter Lab, and in 2021/22 participated in the Midsumma Pathways Program for LGBTQIA+ people living with disability, where they were mentored by esteemed theatre director Adena Jacobs. 

Theatre credits include The Last Hour (2022, The Butterfly Club, sound designer) Ring, Ring! (2021, Theatre Works, co-writer & director with Ellen Wiltshire), BLITZ (2019, Alex Theatre St Kilda, writer & director).
