RMIT’s non/fictionLab invites you to join us on Monday 30 October for a performance of creative work and Q&A by Zoe Dzunko and Annabel Brady-Brown.
This is the sixth and final outcome of Women Writers in the City, a project supported by the City of Melbourne 2016 Arts Grants.
Women Writers in the City at West Space
Zoe Dzunko and Annabel Brady-Brown present a multi-dimensional performance that explores ideas of weight bearing, economics, creativity, sacrifice and the opacity of boundaries in women’s labour. Responding to a number of representative effigies that render female figures as both custodians of and accessories to the politically loaded structures they adorn, the pair use poetic and critical texts placed in conversation with one another. Followed by Q&A.
Zoe Dzunko is co-editor of The Lifted Brow and in 2014 she founded Powder Keg Magazine, an online poetry quarterly based out of Melbourne and New York. She is the author of numerous chapbooks, most recently Selfless (TAR, 2016), and her work has been supported by programs such as Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, Tin House Writer’s Workshop, and Yale Writers’ Conference. Her writing has appeared widely in Australian and international publications, including The Age, Australian Book Review, Southerly, Guernica, Tin House, The Fanzine, Prelude et al. She has a PhD in Creative Writing from Deakin University, and completed her Masters degree at Melbourne University, where she teaches creative writing, small press publishing and independent media.
