Portrait of Roshelle Fong

Roshelle Fong

Roshelle Fong is a Chinese-Australian performer and filmmaker who experiences life as Play School: The Glitch Opera. By day she creates rich media content for the Australian Government and by night, she devises multimedia performances exploring concepts like cultural confusion and technology as a life-force.

Roshelle has produced and performed in film, spoken word, stand-up comedy, theatre and performance art around Australia, including at Woodford Folk Festival, RAW Comedy Festival, Australian Poetry Slam 2014 at the Sydney Opera House, the Living Museum of Erotic Women, and Melbourne Spoken Word’s poetry events at White Night, and Melbourne Fringe Festival.

She won the Sydney Road Writers Cup 2015 and has since featured at events including Passionate Tongues, Speak Up and Mother Tongue, and supported American poet Oveous (HBO Def Jam Poetry).

This year Roshelle premiered her one-woman show, A Virtual Virtual Reality Show (Girls On Key), at Auckland Fringe Festival.
