I am delighted to say that Arts Council England have awarded me a grant of £15,000 to fund the first period of development of my new show, ‘Superheroines I Have Known & Loved’.
A work in progress will be shown at Rich Mix in London on Dec 5th; purchase tickets here. It will be directed by Hetain Patel, and feature music from the May Ensemble, a fantastic string quartet led by Amy May.
The show deals with the difficult issue of gender. Though it has very adult themes, I will also be distributing a pamphlet of children’s poetry, illustrated by Laura Gomez Marin and designed by Raul San Mateo.
I will be mentored on the project by performance artist Bryony Kimmings, and the man behind Cinematic Orchestra, Jason Swinscoe.
