Alex Desebrock is an independent artist based on Whadjuk Noongar land (Perth), Australia. Her work spans interactive theatre, live art, installations, online and public interventions. Her practice focuses around empathy, connecting strangers, big questions and the child’s voice.
Alex is a founder of FLOCK, an artist lead initiative that provides PD and connection for and by Perth artists. She also initiated the 17,000 member facebook group Australian Arts Amidst Covid 19. In 2019 Alex was awarded the Theatre Network Australia “Smashing It” award for an independent artist.
Alex is passionate about creating high quality, insightful arts experiences for children and adults. Her work is described as “gently radical” using games and interventions to connect the ideas and opinions of children with stranger adults. Sharing the creative, brutally honest, playful, amusing, and guilt-inducing moments from future generations has become a long-term investigation, as she believes this is ultimately what the world needs to hear.
Alex was awarded a Career Development Grant in 2019 by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
