The Gloaming

Arts Queensland funding supported Ellen Belloo’s creative development of a new work titled The Gloaming. The project engaged professional arts makers from different fields as mentors and provocateurs and culminated in a script reading performance to industry peers.

Katherine Lyall-Watson and co-collaborator Caroline Dunphy are the core artists behind the independent ensemble Ellen Belloo. Their artistic mission is to find new ways of exploring text and space via the medium of the human body and to create vibrant new theatre works.

The aim of the three-week creative development was to edit an existing script of a gothic play written by Katherine Lyall-Watson and draw in a team of experts to explore the possibilities for movement, soundscapes and puppetry in its conception and execution with a view of future production.

A partnership with the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts through the Fresh Ground program and support through Projects and Program Funding allowed the artists to discover demand for the work.
