Oddbody, as the name implies, is a collection of six very different bodies, ages, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds that flocked to one another, unearthing each other's fascinations with the quotidian, the abject, with domestic ritual, femaleness and alien perspectives. With expertise in visual arts, live art, media, creative writing, puppetry, community theatre and movement, Oddbody derives inspiration from sources as disparate as pop culture, the opera, mess, and the everyday.
The six members of Oddbody met while completing a Post Graduate Diploma in Performance Creation (Animateuring) at VCA in 2013. Since then Oddbody has undertaken residencies at Metro Arts in Brisbane, Metanoia Theatre in Brunswick and performed in a variety of small events.
