GITA BEZARD is a playwright, performer and devisor. She is happy when she is both dancing like a cheeky unicorn and writing by candlelight in her (imaginary) garret. Gita has written YOSHI’S CASTLE, GIRL SHUT YOUR MOUTH (winner of the Black Swan Emerging Writer’s Award) and HOUSE AND BROOD. Gita was awarded the StagesWA Co-Commission to adapt two plays by Eugene Ionesco for Perth Theatre Company in 2012. She has performed in MINNIE & MONA PLAY DEAD (Fringe World 2013 Martin Sims Best New WA Work) and ELEPHENTS. She also really enjoys baking but not because the patriarchy expects her to.
