The Backstories: Moya Dodd

Date: 21 Jan 2018

Moya Dodd, a legend in Australian football and a powerful and respected figure in the game globally, reveals personal stories, memories and photos in an intimate reflection of an extraordinary life.

Picked to play for the Matildas when she was 19, Dodd wowed on-field for a decade before going on to be appointed to the executive committee of FIFA, the international governing body of football.

Co-presented with resident company Contemporary Asian Australian Performance, The Backstories is a solo work featuring Dodd, born of Chinese and Anglo-Australian parentage, opening up about her early years growing up in the Western Sydney market garden of her grandparents to playing at the pinnacle of Australian women’s football, becoming a lawyer and becoming one of the first women to serve on the board of FIFA.

Part of a series commissioned by Adelaide Festival, the work is directed by renowned autobiographical storyteller William Yang and writer-director Annette Shun-Wah.
