Leah Selton is an artist.

Leah Selton is a performance-maker who works as a solo artist and as an artistic collaborator. Originally dance-trained, she has a diverse performance background, including over a decade working in the intense Actor Training Method of Tadashi Suzuki. She toured nationally and internationally with physical theatre company Frank Theatre, playing mad and powerful heroines such as Lady Macbeth and Ophelia, in Switzerland, Wales, US, UK and Australia.

Leah is a core member of dance-theatre ensemble Polytoxic, whose signature style is inspired by the traditions of the Pacific, the guts of physical performance and the crimes of pop-culture. Polytoxic has played to packed houses across Australia, including the Sydney Opera House, and internationally in Vanuatu and Canada. Leah is also co-founder of The Brides of Frank, a tight dynamic ensemble of five females who create intense satirical performances incorporating sophisticated choreography with highly theatrical characterizations.

As a solo artist, Leah creates physical performance work that is highly visual, theatrical and absurdist. Her adoration of design, illusion and the darkly absurd has seen her squash her whole body inside a suitcase, die onstage at least 132 times, and most recently tour throughout Holland and Belgium as a guest performer with the divas of La La Parlour.
