Ben Graetz (2015)


Indian Acts is a series of public presentations, occurring throughout the year and includes staged readings, works in progress, musical concerts, dance performances and excerpts from pieces we have in development.

On Fri­day Sept 4th, start­ing with a BBQ social, Full Cir­cle is hon­oured to wel­come vis­it­ing Indige­nous per­former and Drag-Artist Ben Graetz (a.k.a Miss Ella­neous) to Coast Sal­ish Ter­ri­to­ry to present a spe­cial Artist-Talk. Ben will be shar­ing with us some of his expe­ri­ences over the years of work­ing in the arts, as well talk­ing about his own work as a cut­ting edge, two-spir­it­ed per­former in his home­land of Aus­tralia and abroad.

BEN GRAETZ

Ben Graetz is a descen­dant of the Muran and Malak Malak Clans in the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry and of Badu Island on the Tor­res Strait Islands of Aus­tralia. He is a ver­sa­tile and orig­i­nal artist who is pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing new Aus­tralian work. He is inter­est­ed in all ele­ments of the per­form­ing arts and is keen to com­bine his cre­ative tal­ents to devel­op the­atre that moves, excites and chal­lenges an audi­ence. He would like to use his pro­duc­ing, direct­ing, per­for­mance and writ­ing skills to cre­ate and be a part of work that is new, inno­v­a­tive and dynamic.
