Yesterday I was reminded that life is precious. Hold on to it folks, take care of each other, take care of yourselves and laugh as much as you can. I’ve had my own battle with mental health, as many of us have. You can’t always see someone else’s struggle. ❤️ This photo was taken by @jassyearlphoto on a happy happy day.
Great day yesterday! Scottish Physical Theatre makers & shakers figuring out how we can all do better at #articulationarts Open Space event. Lovely to be with my community. #physicaltheatre #community #scotland #howcanwemakegreatphysicalperformanceinscotland #openspace 📸 Ewan Downie of @companywolves
“full of raw anger and remarkable inventiveness, it seems set to be one of the key Scottish-made solo pieces of 2019.” - the Scotsman on Nino work in progress by Tidy Carnage Theatre Company at #manipulatefestival. Thanks the Scotsman! Proper chuffed! https://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/culture/theatre/theatre-reviews-invisible-lands-nino-void-vu-intronauts-traverse-theatre-edinburgh-1-4870420?fbclid=IwAR1fi3HiiNf7_AXxXebruzMvU_1e8Lt8t-6Fcaw1CkeQmy5lHH2rwOOVC7E
Rehearsal pic from Nino by Tidy Carnage at our recent @dancebase residency. Excited/ nervous/ excited to present a work in progress performance at manipulate Festival on 6th feb @traversetheatre. A darkly comic & v feminist look at living in the UK benefits system. Physical theatre/ dance/ clown/ soundscape. Made with the genius of @alliedwb & @_suseb. Love being at manipulate, such an awesome programme this year @puppetanimascot!
Jumping into residency @dancebase next week with Tidy Carnage. We will be developing NINO for our work-in-progress performance at @puppetanimascot Manipulate Festival . AND on Tuesday I’ll be teaching a company class on clowning - it’s FREE! Come along for a giggle. https://www.dancebase.co.uk/teachers/tidy-carnage-100000728 . 📸 @picturesbybish . NINO by Tidy Carnage - work-in-progress - 6th Feb @traversetheatre
Facebook tells me it’s 10 years since Alex Bird (of @tortoiseinanutshell fame) and I spent a very cold January outside in some ruins near Gilmerton making our site specific @qmuni assessment piece ‘Grave When Living, House When Dead’. Ah we were so young! Lovely chilly memories.
For the first time ever I’ve had a total switch off festive break. It’s been glorious. Frosty walks with this one and coming back to our cosy new home has been amazing. I’m up early and off on residency now for a week and taking all the feels with me to keep me warm on the road. ❤️ @natureboygabe
All I want for Christmas... is this fucking giant baby seal. @natureboygabe, I have been VERY good this year. 😇
Always mega excited for @puppetanimascot manipulate festival programme launch! This year I’m doing a work in progress called #Nino with the sensation that is @alliedwb of #tidycarnage, hosting #Pitch with @surgescotland & herding clowns with @clown_cabaret #ClownCabaretSpecialEditon. Love #manipulatefestival! NINO - Part clown, part dance, part soundscape, a darkly comic performance inspired by one woman’s experience of living in poverty in contemporary Britain.
