TextaQueen’s performances began over two decade ago with slide shows of portraits accompanied live by anecdotes related to the drawing process and the talents of featured subjects. More recently, TextaQueen has been performing spoken word related to the narratives in the projected artwork. These grand yet intimate affairs have been hosted across Australia and North America including as part of Discendants in the National Queer Arts Festival in San Francisco and with the spoken word and performance tour, Sister Spit in 2007 and 2013 at such locations as the New Museum, New York and the Red Cat Theatre, Los Angeles.
TextaQueen is currently developing a live art performance with diverse writers, performer and musicians commissioned by ArtsHouse Melbourne’s CultureLAB program.
