Alison Paradoxx is an Award-winning Performance Poet, Producer, Event Host, Writer, and State Poetry Slam Champion.
Her work predominantly explores the clinical violation of the body, and the social model of disability, through self-narrative journeys. Weaving stories of stoic persistence as a childhood burns survivor, through experiences with scoliosis, eating disorders, surgical violation, and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Alison explores personal detachment to the physical body, and articulates injury and trauma through metaphor, soundscape, and visual performance.
On the stage, Alison has performed in venues as diverse as the local pub, to The Sydney Opera House, and her work has been published widely.
Her first solo production, Floral Peroxide, sold out its 2019 Adelaide Fringe season, and an encore performance was staged at the closing of the Festival. Floral Peroxide was granted the huge honour of winning The Graham F. Smith Peace Foundation Award, at The Adelaide Fringe Awards Ceremony, 2019. The production was awarded funding from The City of Melbourne Council to show at Melbourne's Butterfly Club, and continued for a second successful season at Adelaide Fringe in 2020.
Most recent works include live, performative sound art, in collaboration with her partner; Sound Designer, 5000 AD.
She is currently learning to play the musical saw.
