New Zine – Misremembering Sarah Kane

I have a new zine for sale!

Misremembering Sarah Kane Through My Own Suicide Attempts is a comic book zine about my own experiences with mental health, suicide and self harm. The zine features text, essays and comics. It is an abstract retelling of how I confuse my memories with my experiences of watching and reading plays by the cult 1990’s playwright Sarah Kane. I use comic books as a means to discuss being a suicide survivor and how this can affect memory and personal experiences.

Sarah Kane (3 February 1971 – 20 February 1999) was an English playwright who is known for her plays that deal with themes of redemptive love, sexual desire, pain, torture—both physical and psychological—and death.

Letters We Leave Behind

In late 2016 I was awarded a residency from the National Theatre of Scotland as part for their Starter for Ten scheme.  During the residency I created the framework for a new Private Play involving puppetry. The title of this show is Letters We Leave Behind. It is still a work in progress and is a special show involving 5 puppets that the audience member will manipulate. The puppet in turn will give a letter to the participant that the audience member can read. There will be five letters (one for each puppet) and they tell the story from the show. Letters We Leave Behind will be completed in early 2018.

Love.Stop.Repeat at Papergirl Bristol

LoveStopRepeat14

There will be an exhibition  of some of our Love.Stop.Repeat zines at the Papergirl Bristol event. The Zines will then get handed out to the public by volunteers who cycle around the city on bikes. This is part of the Papergirl network of art events around the world. Papergirl events will allow people to enjoy Love.Stop.Repeat in setting far from the exhibition space.
The event will happen later in the year and we will post of more information when we have it.
