Eliza Scott

Eliza Scott is an interdisciplinary artist working across performance, drag, sound and film. The nature of their work is experimental, queer and intends to shift away from the conventional narrative. Their practice integrates technology and sound into live performance – through the use of loop pedals, live-feed and audio-trickery.

In February 2021, Eliza presented pollon, an interdisciplinary solo performance developed through Shopfront Co-Op’s 2020/21 Artslab residency. Pollon explores the liminal space that exists in the gaps of remembering, and how sound and music hold the blind-spots in our memories.

Eliza is passionate about making work that is unafraid to investigate and represent non-binary voices. Their Drag King, Luke from IT, is used to dissect gender identity and dysphoria through comedy, clowning and some very serious lip-synching.

Eliza lives and works on Gadigal Land (Sydney). Sovereignty was never ceded.

In everything we do, we acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal land and constantly learn from the wisdom of our First Peoples.

Where we are and the history that precedes us informs how we work and how we move forward.
