Elizabeth Trew is a young Pitjantjatjara, Arrernte woman, living in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) with family from lots of communities. Lizzie was inspired to join the stArts with D ensemble by watching her brother Isaac Trew perform. She says she saw Unbroken Land in 2015 and thought “I want to do that!” and returned to perform in both the 2016 and 2018 productions. She is further presenting works in the 2020 program in a series of short films.
Lizzie has also taken part in Incite Arts’ Connect2Culture and Move Masters projects. Connect2Culture was created in response to Lizzie and fellow artist, Tiffany Malthouse, wishing to creatively explore their connections to cultural heritage, language, stories, song and dance. Move Masters provides tailored professional development and mentoring opportunities for Lizzie and fellow members of the stArts with D Ensemble, otherwise not available. These artists are committed to working together and creating new artistic works. The projects continue today with artist and mentor, Lauren Jones.
