Founded in London, England, Odd Stumble is a politically engaged theatre collective whose core artistic work is presently based out of Montréal. Odd Stumble produces new works and also initiates projects that respond to current events with improvisation and devised collaboration as creation methods. With a penchant for the odd, experimental and physical, the company works laterally with artists of various disciplines to explore diverse forms of narrative. Politically relevant stories, theatre design elements (set, lights, and sound), and unique performance spaces, are central to the company’s creation approach.

“It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.” – Joseph Campbell

Odd Stumble is committed to feminist practices and works closely with artists of diverse backgrounds and artistic disciplines to collaboratively create theatrical experiences that nourish artistic development and engage audiences on a visceral level.

The Founders

Once upon a time a Finn, a Spaniard, and a Canuck stumbled upon each other; Maria Kivinen, José Gardia and Cristina Cugliandro.
