Yana Taylor (she/her) Since devising as a member of award-winning performance ensemble, version 1.0, Yana has sustained a fascination with found images and records/archives – revivifying their factual qualities, opening out their documentary effects to more speculative responses in present-day aesthetic and social realms. She brings experience in movement and dance disciplines to handling language, voice and composition in direction. Her PhD at University of Sydney was on the influence of body-based practices in contemporary performance making. Yana is a studio artist @parra_artiststudios on Burramattagal/Darug land.
