Max is about to perform the perfect show. OOL will answer all your questions. At long last you'll be happy. The only question is - when will the show begin?

Second Body are a multi-award winning theatre company, specialising in form-bending work combining music, storytelling and science.

OOL (origin of life) is the world premiere of their brand new solo show, in which founding company member Max Barton will use live looped music, metaphysics and some very loud bangs in order to explore where life truly begins.

Earlier this year, Second Body's show Concept for a Film won the Sydney Tour Ready award and the Most Innovative Work award at NZ Fringe. Their debut show STYX has received thirteen ★★★★★ reviews, was Guardian Pick-of-the-Fringe, won a Fringe World award in Perth and was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award at Edinburgh Fringe 2019.

Praise for previous shows:

"A gorgeously atmospheric, exquisitely lit, ear-tingling journey into the past and memory itself" - Lyn Gardner

"A moving, gorgeous song cycle about inheritance, loss and the fragility of memory" - Natasha Tripney

"Evokes a half-remembered song suddenly falling into a melody, with the people you love buried between the notes" - The Guardian

"Tremendously well written...entrancing...this was basically made for me"- Three Weeks

"Enthralling...Barton's performance is captivating...I left with a great sense that we should spend less time here concentrating on doing, and more time feeling."- Everything Theatre
