Presented by:

Alison Paradoxx is an Award-winning Performance Poet, Producer, Event Host, and State Poetry Slam Champion.

Representing the state at the National Poetry Slam at The Sydney Opera House in 2016, Alison has featured for a variety of literary performance bodies all over SA, and been involved in numerous collaborative projects statewide.

A stoic survivor of childhood burns, surgeries, scoliosis, eating disorder, and congenital disease, Alison’s work addresses issues of accessibility and diversity, and sparks debate on how we, as a society view physical, and mental disability.

Her first solo production, 'Floral Peroxide', received The Graham F Smith Peace Foundation Award for Adelaide Fringe 2019, and was awarded funding to show at Melbourne's 'Butterfly Club.' Don't miss it in 2020!
