Gwen Knox is a woman of Ballardong Noongar descent who over the past 30 years has created visual and children’s theatre with and for regional communities using circus, puppetry, dance and spoken word for non-conventional venues.
She has written and co-written, directed and toured many theatre works. These include ‘Staircase to the Moon: the musical', ‘Ngalyak and the Flood’ and 'Song for the Mardoowarra'. Gwen attended the International puppetry festival OFF 2015 and 2019 and included a tour to Brussels. All of these works have toured regional WA.
Her most recent work, in development, is 'Scones with Nana', a story set in Fremantle and Ballardong Noongar country, a site-specific work to be told in small workers’ cottages. It tells the story of a family that must deal with dementia, family secrets, and intergenerational trauma, brought to light in a humorous truth telling that involves the making and eating of scones.
