Louisa Panucci

Beginning her creative journey at the age of sixteen at Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, Louisa is a queer Italian/mixed race Australian, who has skills in movement methodology, dance, singing and visual art-making. 

Louisa does not shy away from the unknown and is sophisticated in her approach to creating new work on screen, on stage and behind the scenes. Film work prior to training at ACA includes Lola in Her Own Music (dir. Olivia Aleksoski), Marianna in Las Rosas (dir. Daisy Montalvo) and The Client in Relapse (dir. Michael Puglisi). She also made her theatre debut as Jessica in A Bunch of Amateurs (dir. Tom Richards). 

The shows she has been in during her time at ACA include Betty 2 in Collective Rage, A play in Five Betties (dir. Troy Harrison), Messenger/Kate in Medea (dir. Louisa Panucci), Thomasina Coverly in Arcadia (dir. Adam Cook), Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet (dir. Craig Baldwin), Irina Prozorov in Three Sisters (dir. Sam Trotman), Harry Brewer/Capt. Campbell in Our Country’s Good (dir. Troy Harrison), Jane in Speaking in Tongues (dir. Troy Harrison) and Helen of Troy in Women of Troy (dir. Kim Hardwick). 

This year, Louisa looks forward to playing Juliet in the upcoming Sport for Jove season of Romeo and Juliet (Dir. Damien Ryan). Her aim is to continue honing her craft by actively contributing to stories that represent her identity.
