Composite Acts is a video and performance-based artwork that uses speech, choreography, and set design to explore non-binary identities, and the relative, fragmentary nature of the self.

Developed in collaboration with choreographer Jo Lloyd, performers Arabella Frahn-Starkie, Shelley Lasica and Harrison Ritchie-Jones, visual artist & set designer Sean Meilak, cinematographer Katie Milwright, composer Duane Morrison, and video editor James Wright, Composite Acts draws upon these collaborators’ personal relationships and family histories. The script of these stories is subsequently spoken, deconstructed, and integrated with choreographed movement enacted in dialogue with a suite of sculptural objects, from which Rosetzky has generated a new series of colour photographs.
