• Adventure/Misadventure- now on at Ovalhouse

    My new show Adventure/Misadventure has now opened at Ovalhouse!

    And what an adventure indeed. This is my second solo show and this time I have pulled out all the stops. There's my usual hot dose of poetic, evocative theatre and cheeky laughs, and I have worked with sound scores, live music and movement to create a multi-dimensional performance that's a sensory experience.

    The show draws on stories of travel, tragi-comic relationship fails and crap jobs to explore what freedom means in our hotchpotch, troubled but beautiful and fascinating world. It's a journey that has resonated widely with audiences.

    The show takes us on a whistlestop world tour that includes chasing Geisha through the streets of Kyoto, finding heaven at Rio Carnival, getting kidnapped and a subsequent nailbiting highspeed chase in Saigon. You'll find me rollerskating fiercely while evoking Argentine mountainscapes, doing bad ventriloquism with a hilariously mean frog and finding rituals of home resonating in a Japanese tea ceremony. And wait till you see the epic FREEDOM megamix dance routine.

    The sumptuous soundscores are vivid responses to the diverse landscapes in the show, drawing on crazy Japanese cities, Brazilian carnivals and burning temples. We've also probably made the most bonkers cover of a Dolly Parton song of all time, if it's not I'll be surprised- think Soft Cell meets Marlene Dietrich in a Berlin electro nightclub. I also perform live with my harp, some gorgeous reworkings of pop classics.

    The show captures the romance, risks and trials of travel, the delights and frustrations of creating a home and then smashes the two together to ask where freedom lies.

    'a beautifully unfolding tale of travel and wanderlust...real laugh out loud moments of absurdity' Broadway Baby.

    Adventure/Misadventure is now on at Ovalhouse until 22nd of June.
