Hyphen is a contemporary interdisciplinary arts company. It is an experiment in which three artists from different cultural and artistic backgrounds have come together to create art. At Hyphen’s core are Jacob Lehrer, Chloe Flockart and Mathew McVeigh. Jacob has a background in dance theatre, performance and improvisation. Chloe has a background in puppetry and visual theatre. Matthew has a background in theatre design and concept art. Between them they have over 28 years professional arts practice and have engaged with local, national, international and regional projects and companies. Hyphen has become their vehicle to merge body, visual and conceptual art through social engagement. The definition of hyphen – to join or divide – drives them to challenge their understanding of the different notions of creating art in today’s world.
