Courtney Scheu is an independent performer, choreographer and teacher. Drawing from literature, improvisation and varying disciplines, she explores the physical potential of the human body and how she might disrupt familiar patterns of moving. She has collaborated with various artists, presenting work for festivals and independently around Australia. Courtney recently performed in the QLD tour of Flaunt by Claire Marshall and in Nerida Matthaei’s angel-monster. Courtney is committed to contributing to conversations of dance and the overall cultural landscape of Brisbane.
Callum Voller is the bassist in Sunshine Coast band Pop Cult. In less than 12 months together, Pop Cult won Triple J’s unearth competition, released three singles garnering generous radio play and favour with press locally and internationally including Rolling Stone Australia . Pop Cult toured the east-coast of Australia with Stonefield, Pop and played hometown festivals Big Pineapple, MMVAF and Jungle Love Festival.
Anwyn Howarth is a Brisbane-based photographer and stylist specialising in editorial photography and styling, portrait photography and creative concepts. At just 18-years-old she has established herself as a creative to be watched and is highly sought out after in the Brisbane community with her stunning visual work and infectious spirit. She has been paramount in the success of multiple Brisbane brands, including a pioneering retail concept store in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, Showroom.
Jack is the Managing Editor of Brisbane-based music news website AAA Backstage and a publicist with Kick Push PR, and has worked with Jungle Love Festival, The Music, Yelp Brisbane, and (for a short time) been a digital marketer in the property industry. A 2014 graduate from QUT with a double Bachelor of PR and Journalism, Jack Doonar started in the music industry with the sole goal of trying to have some fun while building up his CV with unpaid work and internships. However, a surprising love for the industry meant the unpaid work quickly turned into a passion and a desire to forge a career as a music journalist and publicist… even if that meant a lot more unpaid work.
