Graduating from the University of Wollongong’s theatre course in 2015, Bonnie dedicated 2016 to “being an artist”. Creating various solo performance installations such as unravelling for the You Are Here festival, 1625 Rings for the Annandale Creative Arts Centre’s ‘Creative Conversations’ and unspoken for 107 Project’s ‘Voyeurism’. Bonnie was thrilled to be part of the 2016 PACT Collective, with whom she created and performed iDNA. Bonnie directed and co-devised One, One, Two, Three, Five in early 2015 as part of UOW’s Nothing To See Here festival and later co-directed and co-devised Fifty-Five See for Wollongong City Council’s Nocturnal Arts festival and PACT Unwrapped. Bonnie’s graduating University performance, Plunge, was a collaboratively devised work directed by Linda Luke. During 2015, Bonnie had the privilege of working as a facilitator for Marina Abramović: In Residence, Kaldor Public Art Project’s Project 30. Bonnie draws on human interactions and personal connections to create performances that are raw and intimate.
