Keelan is a Sydney-based ar/st who seeks to blend the beauty of nature, the art of storytelling, and the world of theatrical sound design. Growing up in the enchan/ng landscapes of the Blue Mountains, Keelan's crea/ve journey was profoundly shaped by his
love for the wilderness and passion for craBing auditory and visual experiences.
Whilst at NIDA Keelan immersed himself in the art of crea/ng experiences on stage and understanding the profound impact sound has on storytelling. Through theatre, Keelan explores the transforma/ve poten/al of sound, eleva/ng narra/ves, and transpor/ng audiences to new realms.
His process is centred around the synchronised crea/on of sound alongside the project. With a love for collabora/on and shared crea/vity, Keelan finds joy in the holis/c process of sharing stories.
His art celebrates nature, storytelling through sound, and a dedica/on to enriching the theatre experience. He hopes to further explore the sonic and visual powers of storytelling in theatre and installa/ons.
