Cicely Binford - Page
Cicely's love for the performing arts began at an early age, with classical music being a big part of her education as a child, learning instrumental music on the piano and French horn, with vocal and theatre performance making its way into her world as a teenager. Her love of theatre never went away, despite warnings from her parents to have something to "fall back on," so she decided to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Drama from Texas Woman's University. Once settled in Australia, Cicely began performing, directing and designing with local theatre groups. She then began reviewing and writing about Perth theatre for various online and print publications including Australian Stage Online, Aussie Theatre, Perth Culture, X-Press Magazine, The Post Newspaper, and The West Australian. She was Arts Editor for X-Press magazine during the 2017 festival season, and has run her own performing arts website Perth Arts Live since 2013. She is on the theatre judging panel for Performing Arts WA.
