Performance Space, in association with PACT, Centre for Emerging Artists are pleased to announce that the 2017 residency artist will be KoCo Carey. KoCo is a Western Sydney based ‘fakaleiti’ artist, with a movement-based practice focusing on queer belonging and cultural performativity. Her work investigates personal experience, from her cultural heritage as a Tongan and Maori ‘Fakaleiti’ person and her identity as a trans non-binary identity living and growing up in suburban Sydney.

She will be mentored by performance artist Latai Taumoepeau and the residency project will investigate traditional Tongan hulas and their intersection with the queer body.
