Five new works by ArtsLab12 artists-in-residence A forest of sound. An edible woodland. A salivating monstrous plant. A garden of voices. A man tangled in dreams. Between Us is a collection of evocative new works by five emerging Australian artists. The audience can expect to eat, to sing, to be photographed, to listen and to […]


Re-emergence

Re-emergence

Hello, it’s Sepy. It may appear that I have disappeared off the surface of the planet lately – or, at least, from my corner of the ArtsLab blog. Sorry blog. But no, I’m well and kicking.


I know what you’re all thinking:

Friends with Deficits, 2012

  “In a context where many of us don’t go to church on Sunday, when and where is it appropriate to gather and sing?” My answer to that is: “I don’t know but I’m trying to work that out okay?” November. 2012. Prepare yourself for a taxonomical spectacular: MODERN SECULAR REASONS TO SING. xx Maria

What’s this? A play reading!?

Hello internets! I’m self promoting! This year we are putting on a play for the Sydney Fringe Festival. It is awesome. The play is called Rope Burn. It’s written by me. And on THIS FRIDAY (the 20th) I’m putting on a super special sneaky reading of the play! It’ll be on at 23 Playfair St, […]

I am proud to announce that my short 3min film CATATHRENIA has been selected as a finalist for ATYP’s The Voice’s Project  – Fresh Ink’s LOVEBYTES competition. Catathrenia will be featured in my ArtsLab piece. If I win this competition I gain a place at the National Young Writers Studio. Which excites me as this year was all about exploring my […]

When life gives you lemons, make AAAAAARRRRRRT

  I think we are all feeling the pressure of the up coming work in progress showing. Personally, life has been kicking me in my metaphorical testicles so the stress has compounded with trying to balance life and making. This showing is an opportunity to get feedback from peers and deeply respected members of the […]


Me.

I am the ArtsLab12 imposter.
