I have been associated with Eloise Wood since discovering her band ‘Spyndrift’ at the Apollo Bay Music Festival around 2000.  They were a major attraction of the festival and have continued to grow as a substantial music act throughout Victoria and Australia.

I have also worked with Elle at the Colac Otway Shire as an associate and have seen first hand her professional and kind manner of dealing with the public and attention to detail.

In recent times, Elle has branched into more theatrical pursuits in performance and stiltwalking.  I have been privileged to engage her for performances in Birregurra with the Ballyhoo event in April of 2018 and more recently at the Birregurra Festival.  Elle was incredibly accommodating to fit in with the ideas of our festival and have given absolutely outstanding performances bringing a new and fantastic feature to our festival.  The design of the costumes, makeup and theatre are incredible and a testament to her and her team of professional costume designers and performers.
