Sister Ursuline


Sonic historian Sister Ursuline is a cellist, vocalist and songwriter who draws on historical anecdotes to create narrative songs: asylum-bound nuns, shape-shifting witches and iron-willed aristocrats inhabit intricate cello-driven tales spanning hundreds of years.

In solo performance she combines live looping and vocals to conjure up a multi-layered cello choir, creating otherworldly landscapes. In 2016 she opened for performance artist Betty Grumble’s solo show Grumble, and most recently performed in Christian Wagstaff and Keith Courtney’s otherworldly installation House of Mirrors at Brisbane Powerhouse. In 2017 she joined Théâtre Excentrique following her performance in I’d Rather Goya Robbed Me of My Sleep Than Some Other Son of a Bitch.
