Building on over twenty years experience, Tamara Saulwick's individual practice has coalesced in recent years into a singular and compelling voice. Utilising digital, mobile and analogue technologies, with a particular emphasis placed on the role of sound in live performance, her works reflect on how we as individuals negotiate, connect, confront, and share with one another.
Tamara's work has toured in Australia and internationally, been adapted for radio and received numerous nominations and awards. Her solo work Pin Drop (2010) received critical acclaim, was nominated for four Green Room Awards and won the Outstanding Production Award (Theatre - Hybrid Performance). Other recent works include commissions for public spaces, Seddon Archives (2011), PUBLIC (2013), Newport Archives (2016), and Alter for Melbourne’s 2016 Festival of Live Art.
Tamara’s work Endings was nominated for a prestigious Helpmann Award for Best New Australian Work. She is an Australia Council for the Arts Fellow and the Artistic Director of Chamber Made. Her first work for the company, Permission To Speak, a collaboration with composer, Kate Neal, premiered in late 2016.
