Liz Jones OM is the CEO and artistic director of Melbourne’s famous La Mama Theatre. She is widely recognised as a leader in the arts in Australia, and particularly in experimental theatre, which has been a major focus of her passion and energy for more than thirty years. Throughout her life Jones has forged new directions in several fields – as a teacher, performer, administrator, board member, employer, manager of an iconic theatre company, entrepreneur and social justice advocate.
Jones was in residence at Bundanon in 2016 working on the work ‘Night Vision’ for Siteworks 2016. The piece, centered around a staged car crash on a desolate road, examines questions around territory, isolation, domestication and wildness. The work was a collaborative project with Alicia Talbot, Steve Mayhew, Suzannah Bayes-Morton and Vanessa Barbay.
