Collaborations

Eleanor also is the co-creator of several extended poetry works with Betsy Turcot, including Shave and a Haircut, Chosen Family and She Stole My Every Rock and Roll. They continue to collaborate as The Belles of Hell, touring both in Australia and the United State, acting as MCs, supporting and curating events and hosting workshops.

Betsy and Eleanor have also worked with filmmaker and poet, Chloe Callistemon to create the collaged/remix work, We Bury Not Burn, which draws from Judith Wright’s work and life story to consider relationships and privacy in a queer setting.

Her collaboration with Thomas Day, DJ Thought Fox vs MC Lady Lazarus, was a live performance and audio-visual remix of the works of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, and has also featured at several national literary festivals. Thomas and Eleanor have also collaborated on the video work, Just Before You Died, which was the winner of the 2012 Queensland Poetry Festival Filmmakers Challenge.

As a part of Artology’s Remix program, Eleanor worked with an ensemble of wonderful young artists and a group of exceptional professional mentors to create a new dramatic response to Mary Shelley’s classic, Frankenstein, with the support of Opera Queensland.
