Hannah Fox

Director, Supple Fox (Creative Producers for Dark MOFO, Mona)

Hannah Fox is one half of Supple Fox, a creative partnership who develop, curate and design social, artistic, live experiences and installations, founded in 2008 by Tom Supple and Hannah Fox. 

The company’s portfolio of work has spanned a variety of self initiated projects and roles including Artistic Associates at Melbourne Festival, Creative Associates for Dark Mofo, Head of Design for UK based creative agency Lavish, developing performance concepts for high profile musicians and visual artists as well as consulting and providing art direction for independent artists and curatorial services for Festivals and Arts Institutions. 

The company has earned a reputation for its unusual approach of taking all sorts of performing arts out of traditional venues and creating new contexts for staging and presenting work including in nightclubs, on Ferris Wheels, in cupboards, in swimming pools, on top of cars, and on boats. Their work has crossed a broad spectrum of outcomes, from painting hundreds of sheep in candy colours for Latitude Festival in the UK, to programming parkour runners at the Tate Modern and community based events such as a Jim Henson Muppet Theme extravaganza featuring all Melbourne musicians to raise funds for a primary school. 

In the last couple of years, Supple Fox have made a move into developing their own art installations.  Their Ferris Wheel of Death installation which involved a 30 piece choir performing on a sound and light altered ferris wheel was presented at Dark Mofo in 2014 and in 2015 they created a large scale immersive sound installation called Bass Bath in collaboration with sound artist Byron Scullin. 

Their continued mission is to forge new contexts for social and artistic experiences that are authentic, challenging and sometimes even enjoyable.
