''I want to surprise people and make them feel amazing.''

What's it all about?

Odd Doll was formed in 2012 out of a desire to transport people into different worlds, telling visual stories, exploring themes and experiences that touch us, and which demonstrate skills that take time to perfect.
Kathleen Yore - Artistic Director

I love to tell visual stories that enhance both the beauty and ugliness of life. I enjoy small forgotten things and things that are just bizarre.

I want to inspire and invigorate people through theatre. I am excited by the way audiences come together, anticipate and imagine. My work has to be hard to create and I believe that as theatre makers we have an great responsibility and a powerful voice.

I am fascinated by the way original composition and choreography work together. I crave the sincere concentration and craftmanship of puppetry on stage. I love how hard it is to perfect the subtle relationship between movement and intention. The power and presence of mask never ceases to amaze me. I am also a clown and physical theatre practitioner, approaching everything in a genuine expressive way, finding the magic and joy in ordinary things.

The people I work with are incredible, I love getting the best out of them.
