performance-maker, writer, dramaturg & community organiser 

Noemie Cecilia Huttner-Koros is a queer Jewish performance-maker, writer, dramaturg and community organiser. Noemie’s practice engages with sites and histories where ecological crisis, queer culture and composting occur. Noemie graduated from WAAPA’s Performance Making course in 2018 and is currently studying a Master of Theatre Dramaturgy at the Victorian College of the Arts. Her work has taken place in black-box theatres, alleyways (The Lion Never Sleeps, The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights), dinner parties (The Trouble-Makers, You Are Here Festival & Batch Festival) and galleries (Borders, Spectrum Gallery), and she also works as a dramaturg and producer for theatre and new writing. She has studied with companies including Makhampom Living Theatre (Thailand), Song of the Goat Theatre (Poland), the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski (Italy), Intercultural Theatre Institute (Singapore) and the Roy Hart International Center for Voice (France). Noemie is an organiser of Arts & Cultural Workers for Climate Action, a co-director of interdisciplinary performance group KAN Collective and has worked with companies including Spare Parts Puppet Theatre (First Hand resident artist), Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (2019 Resident Artist), DADAA, Incite Arts Alice Springs, Perth Festival Artist Lab 2018, Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation and Australian Theatre for Young People (National Studio 2019, mentor Ross Mueller). Her poetry has been published in Australian Poetry Anthology 2020 and she was the winner of the 2020 Venie Holmgren Environmental Poetry Prize. Noemie is currently co-writing the play 'Untitled Wars' with Mararo Wangai (The Blue Room Theatre Winter Nights 2019), developing a radio play 'What Is Given Is Not A Fully Formed Song' with Josten Myburgh (The Blue Room Theatre Winter Nights 2020) and dramaturg for TheatreWorks Victoria’s She Writes playwriting program. 'The Lion Never Sleeps' was named in the Australian Book Review's Arts Highlights of 2019. Hailing from Ngunnuwal country, Noemie lives between Whadjuk Noongar country in Boorloo (Perth) and Wurundjeri country in Victoria.

 

 

I am always interested in new collaborations with artists of any discipline and with non-artists too. I am curious about what happens when people get into a space together, create, ask questions, remain curious and give ourselves fully to one another. If you have an idea and need a performance-maker/writer/director/dramaturg/facilitator/performer please get in contact :)
