post are a collaborative performance ensemble based in Sydney. Comprising Zoë Coombs Marr, Mish Grigor and Natalie Rose, post’s work is a unique combination of political sensibility and high-camp kitsch aesthetic. Straddling live art, theatre and contemporary performance, they could be described as ‘hybrid’, but prefer ‘genre-queer’. post carry a deep irreverence for the institution of theatre and a deep reverence for the moment of live performance it houses. This has amused, bemused and probably annoyed audiences around the country for the last decade. post are concerned with the truly absurd, drag, imposters, impressions, bad acting, boy genii, The Biggest Loser, birth, death, auditions, shamans, epitaphs, avatars, and those nightmares where you have to give a speech, but haven’t got any pants on. Their latest work Oedipus Schmoedipus ran at Belvoir Theatre as part of the 2014 Sydney Festival.
