Hello, I haven't written here for a fair while and it's about time I did so. This is how it's going to work, firstly, I'll tell you about a few things that I'm doing in the future, then (secondly/lastly) I'll tell you what I've been up to recently which will predominantly be me bragging about how busy I've been (mostly due to a constant fear of dying and being forgotten). Feel free to stop reading for the second half (but it will include pictures).
Next week I'm headed to Leicester to do a research and development with New Art Club at Curve Theatre.
In July if you're going to be at Latitude Festival please come and see me because I really want to impress Latitude with how popular I am, I'm doing She Was Probably Not A Robot (I think it's going to be at 1.45pm on Sunday on the cabaret stage).
In July I'm doing some previews of my latest (attempted) creation Wilting in Reverse, I'm not exactly sure what it's about yet, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be my finest piece yet (physically, emotionally and dramaturgically). I might do some little last minute test shows which I can't tell you about right now. I can tell you about the previews at BAC though, they are on 30-31st of July, you can (all) get tickets here.
"Hang on a second?!" I hear you ask/demand. "You said preview… preview for WHAT?" Well, I'm glad you asked/demanded.
In August I'm doing Wilting in Reverse in Edinburgh, honestly, this will probably be my last Edinburgh for a while so you should definitely come. It'll be on at 8.10 in Underbelly Cowgate. Get them (tickets) while they are hot (most likely room temperature unless freshly printed) here.
So… that's all the upcoming stuff, now to fill you in on what I've been up to. Feel free to stop reading now… but here's a picture before you go. It's me at christmas time in London in my flat.
what happens in the past, stays in the past
...anyway... that happened. So, since September I've been touring and working on various projects in various places. Here are a few pictures from my travels.
KAKISENI INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL - Kuala Lumpur
In September 2014 I was invited to Malaysia to perform She Was Probably Not A Robot as part of the Kakiseni International Arts Festival. While I was in Malaysia I was also invited to visit the Pulau Ketam International Arts Festival.
In October I went to Norway for a research and development week for a new kids show that I'm directing at Det Andre Teatret. Then a week later I was joined in Oslo by Wil Greenway and together we performed The Lounge Room Confabulators in 10 lounge rooms around the city. Then I performed my solo storytelling show The Beast at Det Andre Teatret.
FEBRUARY - MARCH
PERTH, ADELAIDE, MELBOURNE AND SYDNEY
From the pictures it may seem that I didn't do any shows, but I did in fact perform lots of shows. We started in at Fringe World in Perth with Before Us at the Blue Room Theatre, then went to Adelaide to perform Dr Brown Brown Brown Brown Brown and His Singing Tiger... Again! (our brand new kids show) and I performed Before Us at Tuxedo Cat. Then in Melbourne we performed the kids show at the Arts Centre and Before Us again with our good friends at Tuxedo Cat. The Australian tour ended in Sydney with the kids show at the Bondi Pavilion and Before Us at Giant Dwarf.
I spent the month of April with Nils Petter Mørland and Mats Eldøen making a brand new kids show called The Ballad of Steven Von Gutenberg and Robert Robertsen. This show will premiere in October 2015.
