Susie Dee (D & Associates) and Patricia Cornelius have made work together for about 30 years. Susie has directed Patricia’s plays: Max, Taxi, The Berry Man and Savages. They first worked together as actors in Cornelius’ Lilly and May which toured nationally and overseas. They both come from a very visceral and physical approach to theatre, which is equally rigorous and vital in the language it uses and in what it has to say about the world.
Dee & Cornelius’ most recent work, Savages, won multiple awards including the 2014 Premier’s Literary Award for Drama (Cornelius) and four 2013 Melbourne Green Room Awards, including Best Direction and Best Writing for Independent Theatre.
