What a pleasure to make a piece especially for the Galoshans Festival this year, and to have the chance to make work at the Beacon Arts Centre again. What an inspiring workshop space!
I so hope we get to perform this again. It was such a pleasure to work with Lucy and Diane - they are hilarious, committed and creative performers, and made the devising process of this piece a pure pleasure. The design work of Fergus was once again an incentive to raise our game, and make sure we delivered something that lived up to his vision. He wrote a lovely blog about the piece which you can read here. He is way more eloquent about it than I could be! Melanie Jordan was a great outside eye, and brought out our characters and gave us confidence to take up space and be slow.
Here are some snaps...
I am a therapeutic clown and performer. Writing here is part of my wider practice and reflection on clowning as an (therapeutic) art form.
