Sylvie is a teaching artist, workshop facilitator and performer with a focus on participant-led and devised theatre and community theatre. With a background in theatre making and drama education, she has spent the past 15 years working with children in India, China and Australia, using creative arts and performance to foster relevant and meaningful conversations to be taken out into everyday life.

Sylvie finds so much joy in all the Polyglot worlds she exists within – whether it be the forests of Paper Planet, the banquets of Feast or the magic of Voice Lab. She likes to imagine herself as an arty sponge – soaking up all the brilliant possibilities that working with lots of different people (especially children!) brings.

Sylvie is also the Creative Director at Satellite Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that works with children and young people where a parent has a mental illness or mental health challenge.

Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
