KAN Collective is the brainchild of emerging interdisciplinary artists, Kate Thresher, Annika Moses and Noemie Huttner-Koros, who work to create spaces where play and transgression are encouraged. Following from their debut work House of Joys, premiered in FRINGEWORLD 2018 in Paper Mountain’s Peaks program, KAN continues to encourage an approach to art-making that rejects traditional formats, power structures and artist roles, striving to create inclusive work that empowers audiences to respond to art as they experience it. The group’s practice involves performance, video, sound and composition, tactile visual art and projection, and interrogates traditional arts practices and cultural and social norms through participatory processes. We strive to increase fem/LGBT+/racially diverse representation in theatre and create a welcoming community for these people (as participants, collaborators, theatre makers, audiences).
