Crowd-funding campaign for ‘I guess if the stage exploded…’

It’s now less than three weeks until I will be performing as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase at Summerhall and I am starting to get really excited!!

To support my showings up in Edinburgh I’ve started a crowd-funding campaign. In order to perform six times, I will have to pay for a stage manager, a technician, space hire, travel expenses and accommodation, technical equipment, marketing, fees for external performers live via skype connection and for FRAGGLE, the Scottish Eagle Owl which will be performing alongside me. And FRAGGLE will be lovely for sure but he doesn’t come cheap….

Lecture performance and workshop at University of Bristol

On Monday 25th March 2013 I will be showing excerpts of my new performance ‘If You Decide To Stay’ in form of a lecture performance, at the Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol. The show is informed by conversations with specialists from Neuroscience, Mathematics, Experimental Psychology, by a Psychotherapist and an Astrologist. In a conversation with Dr. Paul Howard-Jones, Reader in Neuroscience and Education, the idea came up that this lecture performance could, in return, inspire formal research.

The lecture performance will be followed by a workshop, facilitated for researchers and students. We will start with creative exercises and explore ideas based on my interdisciplinary approach for developing this performance. We will focus on how performance may inspire experiential research, help capture data from others and help disseminate findings. I am very curious to see what will be coming out of this, it’s a real experiment…..


Premiere of If You Decide To Stay

I am really excited about my new upcoming performance If You Decide To Stay, which will be presented as part of the intriguing IBT13 International Festival of Performance.

The premiere will take place on Sat 16 Feb13, at 1.30pm at Arnolfini Bristol. The show has already sold out, but more info can be found here.

Please also check out the works of my friends Jo Bannon, Alex Bradley, Action Hero and Helen Cole’s We See Fireworks at IBT13 which all promise to be most inspiring!

And I really look forward to the Dressage party at Lakota on the eve of 16 Feb13, which promises to be a bit kinky and delightful. Hope to see you there .

Autumn tour of ‘I guess if the stage exploded…’

From September onwards I will be travelling around nationally and in Europe to present four more showings of ‘I guess if the stage exploded…’, as part of Aarhus Festival in Denmark (4 September), inTACTO Festival in Spain (14 September), at The Junction in Cambridge (10 October) and at Colchester Arts Centre (14 November). More details can be found on the left hand side of this page.


I am really excited as I will be working with new eagle owls in Denmark and Spain. The eagle owl in Denmark is called Ula, I hope she can live up to Ollie’s amazing performance!!


The tour is funded by Arts Council England.

If you decide to stay

I’ve just presented a very early work-in-progress showing at Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment on Friday 27th July. It marked the starting point of my new performance project ‘If you decide to stay’, which I will be developing over the second half of 2012. The project draws on decision-making, acknowledging the complexity of the world within and around us. During the wip some loose images and first thoughts were presented, around the decisions necessary to create a show, whilst the choice of each individual audience member was celebrated to have come along to join.


lovely little snippet of what looks like a great new show!‘ 2Destination Language


Over the next weeks and months I will embark on a journey to retrace a life-time of decision-making. This journey will see me leading conversations with a Neuroscientist, to find out more about neuronal activity involved in decision-making, as well as having meetings with a Psychotherapist, to analyze early childhood incidents that may shed light on how I deal with decisions in my life. A mathematician will be approached to investigate the influence of coincidence and to consider the uncountable alternative routes that would have been possible…… So watch out for more info to come sooooon.
