Critically acclaimed performance artist, playwright and activist Bryony Kimmings performs a work-in-progress of her highly anticipated new show.
I’m a Phoenix, Bitch combines personal stories with epic film, soundscapes and ethereal music to create a powerful, dark and joyful work about motherhood, heartbreak and finding inner strength.
Bryony Kimmings is renowned for her outlandish “social experiments” with previous works seeing her retrace an STI to its source, spending seven days in a controlled environment in a constant state of intoxication and becoming a pop star invented by a nine-year-old girl. The artist sets her sights on the impossible and un-conquerable and tries to change public secrets into the year’s hottest topics.
Her most recent work A Pacifists Guide to the War on Cancer was commissioned by Complicite and originally shown at The Royal National Theatre and HOME, Manchester and subsequently toured to Melbourne, Sydney and across the England. Bryony’s award winning work has toured internationally including: Antifest (Finland), Culturgest (Portugal), Fusebox Festival (Texas), Southbank Centre (London), Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Australia) and Lisinski Operahouse (Croatia). Bryony also mentors artists, teaches workshops, writes a popular arts blog, speaks on panels and is sometimes on the telly. She is an associate artist at Soho Theatre and is currently working on projects with the Royal Court Theatre, Southbank Centre and Complicite.
