Nancy Denis is a Haitian-Australian actor who, at the age of three, began dance training and has since gone on to secure roles on stage and screen. Recently, she was a featured performer in UTP’s Home Country (2017) and Right Here. Right Now. (2018). Nancy Denis will be supported to create a new and exciting work with musician Carl St Jacques.
Throughout 2019, we’re supporting a number of diverse projects from young people and emerging practitioners as part of the Young Residents Program. All artists have strong voices and sharp insights into contemporary practice and cultural representation, and their collective talents include literature, performance, live art, film and community practice. Nancy Denis in Residence is part of the Young Residents Program.
Western Sydney University is the Young Residents Program founding partner. The program is made possible through the generous support of the Crown Resorts Foundation and Packer Family Foundation.
