LAURA DAVIS in Marco (Polo)

Marco Polo is a popular game played amongst friends in backyard pools where someone swims blindly, but keeps their ears open to find the other players – when "Marco" is called, the group responds with "Polo" – it’s a game of blind awareness.

In Marco (Polo) Laura Davis invites audiences into a mysterious swimming pool illusion to participate in a high-stakes game of Marco Polo that links themes of trust and asking for help; of love and joy; and of fear and the need for human connection.

Challenging, provoking and silly, Davis is a compelling comedian who blurs the lines of intimacy and stand-up performance into the realm of interactive live art.

Winner of the 2015 Golden Gibbo and Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe 2015 for Ghost Machine, Davis has been described as “phenomenal”, “bold and extraordinary”, as well as “fiercely funny” and ‘totally hilarious”.

Davis reveals that making herself vulnerable fascinates her, “I create an unusual space and gentle approach that allows everyone to dive into situations together. At the end of the day – we all need each other.”

"Impossible not to laugh. Everyone left on a high." – Herald Sun
