Odd lab was birthed by the El Paso/Las Cruces community in 2009. The company started with a backyard fire-burning quartet who performed for their friends and family. Odd lab has since grown to over a dozen performers of varying degrees and talents working with poi, hoops, staffs, whips, nun-chucks and other ingenious objects. Over the last four years Odd Lab has entertained adults and children alike at Zoo hostings, art galleries, fund-raisers, anniversary celebrations and music festivals. This troup has burned a trail across New Mexico’s borders, from Las Cruces to Albuquerque and from Gallup to Tucumcari. Specializing in both glow and fire prop- manipulation, these dedicated artists will continue to spread their heat across the southwest.
