this practice is called transomatics. trans, because it is for our community. somatics, coined by Thomas Hanna, meaning “the body as experienced from within”.

artwork and editing by Fury: Fury has been writing poetry since they were 12. After a brief but intense stint in Melbourne’s spoken word scene, they settled into journalism and queer advocacy. They have recently branched out into writing for screen. see a collection of their work here.

audio editing by Iris Lee: Iris hates bios, but somehow sometimes is a writer. She has previously worked in hospitality and cleaning, makes community radio, and believes in collective social change. She is a white settler, queer and trans. see some of her work featured on Archer Magazine.

music by Tahl Katz: aka the producer/singer Queen Daddy. They refer to themselves as an RnB pop-daddy; with cute and cheeky lyrics sandwiched together with an RnB beat and soft pop-jazz vocals. stream their work on Spotify.


accessibility: most movement is done while lying on your back, or seated however is comfortable for you. i recommend having a rug, towel or blanket between you and the floor. you may also want a cushion for your head when lying down. episodes four and five involve standing and walking. transcripts are available as PDF and WORD documents for each recording.
