Daley King

Daley King is an eclectic, queer performance artist, theatre maker, and stage manager; raised in Perth, he was born in New Zealand, with Māori heritage. Exploring the outer limits of performance through his personal experiences with bipolar disorder and autism spectrum disorder, he generates unpredictable and uncomfortable art in a celebration of chaos. Daley creates socially-engaged, politically-charged performance works examining the elusive fringes of society and the furthest corners of humanity. These include manic solo puppet show I’m Not Alright, environmental underwater satire ‘TANK’ and thought-provoking artistic introspection ‘Hold Your Breath (Count To Ten)’. Brutally honest in his observations of the world, he fuels his writing and art with the darkest of humours and has been described as “rewriting the rule book”.
