Many of those who took part in Splinters are still active as artists and have websites some of which are on the menu at right, Hands of Glory. We will keep adding to this over time, here starting with those contributing to the archive project:

Louise Morris, who kindly donated the videos left with her by David Branson that are a substantial part of the collection, is now an theatre academic in Melbourne and her performance company is Red Cabbage.

Stuart Vaskess is now Co-Director of The Village Festival, based in Melbourne. Stuart was a key members of the Splinters from the very beginning. He wrote and performed in the early days and created much of the visual style including the distinctive hand made posters. In the second half of the company’s life he focussed on using his amazing skills as a sculptor, making machines and sets, and overall logistics.

Katherine Pepper was photographer-in-residence from the early days, and took many thousands of shots over the years. Many prints and negatives are in the collection at the ACT Heritage Library, and over time we will digitise this as well as some of Katherine’s personal archive. She continues to work as a professional photographer in the UK.

Phllip Crotty was a long-time Splinters member who sadly passed away in June 2012. He was a key writer for the company, working much in collaboration with Patrick Troy, and a gifted performer, notably in The Second Scream (see Videos). Phil was also a driving force in Splinters’ mutant little sister group, Aktion Surreal. A brilliant mind, a gentle soul, sadly missed.

We have started making a list of everyone who performed with Splinters. It’s probably going to be impossible to identify everybody, but here in the meantime is the list we have so far of those who made significant contributions over the years. If you were involved in a Splinters show and not listed here, please let us know which show and in what role.
