The frantic claquetty-racket of heels against polished mahogany are Novy’s first memories as he was brought up by five aunts and a grandmother in the old Spanish town of Ilo Ilo in the Philippines. Novy is a dancer, choreographer and designer who began his dancing career in his mid-teens. Novy moved to Sydney in 2010 and with partner Ignatius Jones, started the famous Stiletto Parties in Surry Hills. With a motto of ‘No stilettos, no entry’, the parties were renowned for amazingly creative stilettos and the art-shoe concept was born. This year, in a special commission with Mardi Gras, Novy will present Stiletto NB, an installation and performance work for Queer Art After Hours 2019.
