BeautifulMess cordially invite you to the culminating show of their Fox Project:
Safety in Numbers
A professional-community mash up- combining physical foolery, musical mastery and story scavenging!
Come join this absurd celebration of all things wild and communal as local wedding preparations get disrupted by scavenger disputes…
it’s Foxes v. Sweepers in the Moorlands turf war…
watch the park transform, come share a slice of the cake… unleash the animal inside… there’s nothing to fear- safety in numbers!
We made a multi-sensory tango-opera in a garage, Foxfood…
(“hilarious and moving”…”a multi-layered and sensoral gift”…”inventive, energetic, funny!” )
We ran summer workshops with a group of adults with learning disabilities and a professional creative team in response to the show…
(see our blog and pics at www.foxtale13.tumblr.com )
We received Arts Council Funding to create an Inclusive Professional-Community Performance bringing together material from both parts of the project…
we’d love to share it with you…
Friday 4th October: 2.30pm
Saturday 5th October: 4pm
Moorlands Estate Community Centre Park (10min from Brixton tube),
Corry Drive, Brixton, SW9 8QT

So wear your best wedding outfits,bring your brolly and expect to make some noise as you are invited to get wrapped up in the Foxy-est- Rubbish-est- Crazy-est
Wedding of the Century!
Who’s marrying who? who’s afraid of what? who’s not playing which part properly?
…and who made all this (Beautiful)Mess?!

Great first day in rehearsal with Laura Bridges and fun fun performers Katy, Patricia and Richard for SOS!
We are resident at The Arc in Stockton on Tees for the devising and rehearsal period - it’s nice to be back up in Yorkshire to work on a production.
Lots of exciting design ideas going round my head - now to apply them to the devising room and see how they could take shape. I love designing for collaborative projects like this!
Fantastic news for ‘Sea of Stories’ in August!
We have got our Arts Council funding!!
I’m really looking forward to working with exciting director Laura Bridges again, and designing and devising in beautiful Staithes, North Yorkshire!
Chicago Cowboy by Boy Who Cried theatre company opens at The Rosemary Branch tonight!
It’s a beautiful and entertaining devised piece with live jazz pianist, gorgeous lighting and cowboys!
Running until 26th May - so get your tickets soon, it’s filling up!
Directed by Leah Townley, with lighting design by Christopher Nairne.
Exciting news - the development week for Black Daisies for the Bride has received Arts Council Funding.
Taking place 8-12th July at Ovalhouse.
This is the first ever stage adaptation of Tony Harrison’s 1992 TV play Black Daisies for the Bride, which Amy has been granted the rights to adapt.
In Amy’s words, “It is a beautiful and poignant piece about Alzheimer’s that uses drama, documentary, verse and song to explore the lives of three elderly patients of the High Royds Hospital, Yorkshire. It takes a delicately tragic look at memory and has the potential to be something extraordinary on stage.”
An exciting couple of days of meetings preparing for Spring designs!
Met up with Ross Drury yesterday for chats about Something Witty’s ‘Importance of being Ernest’ which is site specific at the The Grand Hotel in Brighton for the Brighton Fringe Festival. Bring on 1800’s farce costume craziness!
Ross is also directing Smoke N’ Oakum’s ‘Cow Play’ for Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe, which I’m also designing. Looking forward to surreal minimalism for that I think.
Then there’s more Ele Slade Design action for Let Them Call it Mischief’s ‘The London Cuckholds’ at The Pleasance in May. A good meeting had with director Danny Wainwright today.
What a busy Spring it’s turning out to be! :)
I’m very excited to be working with ‘Let Them Call It Mischief’ again this spring. The production of ‘The London Cuckolds’ will be at The Pleasance, in April & May 2013.
