About Nicola Gunn

Melbourne-based performance artist Nicola Gunn combines text and choreography to create contemporary performance praised as“tantalising, entertaining, ridiculous, and often bewildering in the best possible way” (Herald Sun).

A confrontational reflection on peace and conflict, moral relativism, and the very function of art, Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is inspired by an incident between a man, a woman, and a duck that touches upon the complex realms of human behavior.

In her solo Pillow debut, Gunn slips across tempos, ideas, and performance modes—from theater to dance to performance art and back again—challenging how we see art, the world, violence, and each other.

Architect Joseph Franz, who also built The Music Shed at Tanglewood, had agreed with Shawn that the theatre exterior must harmonize with the existing farmhouse and barns.
