Mish Grigor is an artist who lives in Sydney. Her work investigates the relationships between popular entertainment and experimental art practices. She enjoys moments of great theatricality placed very close to the absolutely mundane, and has an ongoing fascination with new writing for performance.
She is one third of the collaboration POST, formed in 2003, with Zoe Coombs Marr and Natalie Rose. Their work Oedipus Schmoedipus, was a joint commission from Belvoir St Theatre and Sydney Festival, supported by Performance Space, Artshouse and Bundanon.
“Oedipus Schmoedipus pushes towards some fundamental truth about why we watch theatre at all, staving off our own mortality with a moment of togetherness” The Age.
Their previous work Who’s The Best? was a Sydney Theatre Company commission that toured to capital cities nationally through Performing Lines’ initiative Mobile States. In 2010 Everything i Know About The Global Financial Crisis In One Hour was jointly commissioned by Belvoir St Theatre and Version 1.0.
In 2014 Mish presented Man O Man at Arts House, Melbourne, and Vital Statistix, Adelaide. In this work she commissioned women from across disciplines to write speeches to be orated on the last night of the patriarchy.
She is currently developing RAMBLE through Punctum’s ‘Seedpod’ program.
Mish was one of the co-directors of the Quarterbred ARI, and was co-director of Imperial Panda and Tiny Stadiums. She has been a curatorial advisor for Next Wave, Underbelly, and the Australia Council for The Arts.
