‘FOR MILLENNIA, ACROSS DIVERSE CULTURES, SCRIBES HAVE HELD SACRED CULTURAL AND SOCIAL ROLES – OFFERING WRITTEN TRANSACTIONS AND BROKERING EXCHANGES.’


Led by Australian artist and curator Leisa Shelton, (Fragment 31), Artist Scribes will be available throughout the Festival, in public and private spaces, to record, transpose and translate the experiences of Spill audiences toward the Democratic Archive of the Live Experience.

Keep your eye out for Scribes, they can pop-up anywhere.


Fragment 31 is an Australian performance collective, focused on interdisciplinary practice and research. It is led by Leisa Shelton with associate artists assembling in varying combinations depending on the requirements of the diverse projects under investigation.

Current projects include associate curator with the Venice International Performance Art Week and the Performed Archive of Australian Media Artists with Experimenta Triennial.
