Jerwood Performing Arts Micro Bursary

I’m delighted to have received a Jerwood Performing Arts Micro Bursary to support some creative development. I’ll be taking part in a stand-up comedy course, and doing some research and thinking around power-dynamics and comedy towards a new performance project.

More about the Micro Bursaries and all recipients here.


In residence: MAKE 2017

Next week I’ll be in Annaghmakerrig in Ireland participating in the MAKE 2017 residency along 15 other artists. I’m working on the beginnings of a new project that will explore language, gender, and power through translation as a theatrical form. More on that here soon…

Good Girls and Where It Gets Them

I’m presenting a first work-in-progress of a new show about language and sex, as part of Camden People’s Theatre’s upcoming festival of sex, Hotbed.

Good Girls and Where It Gets Them will explore sexual dominance and submission through the art of conversation. The beginnings of a show about how language is at play in sex, about how power is transferred when we talk and fuck, about how language might make us submissive or how language might dominate, and about trying to know what you want.

A new piece for Beta Public VI

This week I’m making a LET’S PLAY for Beta Public VI, London’s only curated night of videogames and performance. I’ll be showing a brand new short performance made in response to playing a video game. Which I confess I haven’t done for a very long time..

Beta Public is on for three nights, 8th-10th November at Camden People’s Theatre, and I’m part of the Thursday night edition. Full info and tickets here: cptheatre.co.uk.
