Frankie van Kan is an interdisciplinary queer artist, writer and sex worker living, loving and learning on unceded Wurundjeri land. Her practise includes live performance, costume, the written word and dance.  Her debut solo show, A Body at Work, directed by Maude Davey, recently completed its premier season at La Mama Theatre and was taken from excerpts of the novel she is currently working on of the same name. Performance highlights include working with Briefs and the award winning Seen and Heard cabaret, and currently producing Stripped Queer—a spoken word event exploring radical vulnerability through the body and the written word which platforms the voices of queer artists. She’s performed in France, Germany, at Edinburgh, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne fringe festivals, The National Gallery of Victoria, Sydney WorldPride, Melbourne Writers Festival and The Wheeler Centre. She has written for Archer magazine, Lip Magazine and Bowen Street Press.
