Michelle St Anne is a site-responsive artist whose immersive and intimate performances create unique audience experiences. Michelle’s work is deeply symbolic, responding to site-specific architectures, audience movement, and embodied participation through lighting, smell, sound, and temperature shifting the way audiences perceive violence and the female body. Her work is described as having a profound impact on audiences long after the performance has finished. Michelle’s practice interrogates collaboration and devising to re-write bodily and societal scripts.
Her latest collaborators include Alexandra Spence, Julie Vulcan, Michaela Gleave, Will Hansen and academics such as David Roesner (LMU – Munich) and Megan Mackenzie (SFU – Canada). More recently with Janet Laurence (Requiem Sydney Festival 2021), Ensemble Offspring and Hospital Hill.
