Last night at the Circus


Photography Andy Hollingworth and poster artwork by OKSE 2018


My new work for 2018 touches on raw themes of mental health, suicide and self help, Last Night at the Circus is a gut wrenching yet hilarious one woman multimedia show exploring what it means to sabotage your own success set in a dystopian yet breathtaking Circus landscape.

The show had it's world preview in May at Brighton Fringe 2018 with three shows at Otherplace Productions in The Warren's Theatre Box.  

The show involved beautiful projections, live recordings, animation and other visual props to drive the narrative and expression of the themes.

The main aim was to spark conversations about mental health long after people have seen the show. The local Brighton suicide charity Grassroots Suicide Prevention was promoted at the end of the show to give support and encourage awareness.
