Maryrose Casey


Maryrose Casey is an Associate Professor with the Monash Indigenous Studies Centre. She has published widely on Indigenous Australian theatre and performance. Her research focuses on the ways in which racism is embedded in the responses to the embodied presence of Indigenous Australians, both in the moment of performance and in the documentation of those performances from colonisation to the present.

Her major publications include the multi-award winning books Creating Frames; Contemporary Indigenous Theatre (2004), Telling Stories Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Performance (2012) and Transnational Whiteness Matters (2008), which she co-edited with Aileen Moreton-Robinson and Fiona Nicoll. She also edited the collection Embodying Transformation: Studies in Transnational Performance (2015).
