"Fuelled with a passion for new Australian and International work I engage with emerging and established writers, directors and performers worldwide in order to give a fresh and exciting voice to local stages. Having worked across many aspects of the performing arts world from front of house, box office, stage management, performance, admin and more I know what it takes to make something work and most importantly what to do if it isn't. Fat Boy Dancing was created in order to diversify who creates work in Australia and therefore who sees it".

Director Gin Savage’s production is warmly played, unfussy and fluent.

Maxine Mellor's short black comedy delights in pushing the boundaries of what can be said and done in a character-based play. There is not a human (or canine) bodily function or orifice that is not explored.
Sydney Morning Herald
Exciting writing, exciting direction, exciting performances. You’ll be seeing more from these artists in the decade to come.
