2015/ 2016 Fake it ‘til you Make it

Bryony is an outrageous, hilarious and fearless performance artist from London. Tim is an outrageous, hilarious and fearless account manager from a top advertising agency.

Bryony and Tim are a couple. Bryony spends most of her life on tour, trying her best to change the world. Tim spends most of his life at a desk trying his best to sell the world. Six months into their relationship, Bryony found out that Tim suffers from severe clinical depression. He had kept it a secret for a very long time.

Fake it ‘til you Make it is Edinburgh Fringe First Winner, Bryony Kimmings’ new work about clinical depression and men... from two people who know all about it! Expect homemade music, stupid dancing, onstage arguments, real-life stories, tears and truths. A wickedly warming and funny show about the wonders and pitfalls of the human brain, being in love and what it takes to be a ‘real man’.

2016 A Pacifist's GuidE to the War on Cancer

 

A Complicite Associates co-production with the National Theatre in association with HOME Manchester


 

A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer is an all-singing, all-dancing examination of life with a cancer diagnosis. This brand new musical takes you on a whistle-stop tour through five unconventional stories about cancer, confronting the highs and lows of the scariest word we know.

 

Bryony Kimmings creates fearless theatre to provoke social change. Her latest collaboration with Complicite will look behind the poster campaigns and pink ribbons at the reality of cancer: the waiting rooms and chemo suites, the changed bodies, the family pressures and financial worries.

 

 

Expect big anthems, shiny costumes, blood, tears and real cancer patients in this rip-roaring, heartbreaking celebration of ordinary life and death, scratching at the battle metaphors that surround cancer to reveal what really lies beneath.

2015-2017 THE BOYS PROJECT

This long term, large scale art and activism project (currently in its very early research stages) will explode media stereotypes surrounding, and the political marginalization of, the young. It will be dreamt up, planned and delivered by a group of 20-30 young men aged 18-25 from inner city council estates across the UK.

The project will be a collaboration between these young men and Kimmings, with the help of a team of political experts, forward thinking activists, media troublemakers, celebrity mentors and social media whizz kids. Like Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model this will be a four-pronged attack: a social campaign, a documentary, a theatre show and an education project. Watch out world!
