Olivia Porter, renowned for her innovative and unusual juggling style, has taken the circus and physical theatre world by storm. Forming one third of Australia’s wackiest new circus company, 3 is a Crowd, her dead-pan comedic stage persona, theatrical physicality and unseen before manipulation skills have drawn national and international success with rave reviews, awards and multiple nominations.
Acclaimed for her strong story telling, captivating movement qualities and comedic surprise, Olivia’s left of centre work has drawn audiences at international fringe festivals, big and tiny tops, Spiegel tents, Versace podiums, contemporary theaters, table tops and national television.
Olivia’s imaginative juggling techniques and movement driven acts led to her swift entry into the performance arena in 2008. She has since performed with circus companies Vulcana Women’s Circus, Circa, Wilde Applause and Lady Torpedo amidst her work as an independent and corporate artist. Olivia’s career highlights have been performing at London Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sydney Hoopla Festival and to an audience of 10 000+ at Taiwan New Year Lantern Festival.
Currently continuing tours throughout Europe and Australia with 3 is a Crowd; she has also embarked on her first full-length solo show as writer, director and performer. At the end of the day Olivia finds respite as a word game enthusiast and a mean 500 player.
