This one woman show by Jolie Booth, producer of Backstage in Biscuitland will arrive at the VAULT Festival from the 1st to the 5th February.
This one woman show will transport audiences to a cosy living room with hypnotic OHP, cushions, incense, tequila and nibbles.
A squatter makes her way up to a long-forgotten flat above a shop in the centre of Brighton. A flat full of someone else’s past. A women’s hip bone lies on the side, amongst diaries, letters and clutter. In a tale of addiction, sexuality, mortality, choices and enlightenment, she embarks on a journey to discover how one might avoid dying alone, and losing one’s hip bone in the process.
It is a semi-autobiographical show that takes audiences to a flat which is caught between two timelines and personalities: the home of Anne Clarke during 70s bohemian Brighton, and a squat established by Jolie in 2002.
As a producer, Jolie Booth has been responsible for many theatre productions including Backstage in Biscuitland and Winner of the 2015 Off West End Award, Tangram Theatre’s Albert Einstein: Relatively Speaking. Meanwhile, as a performer she has starred in many different productions including Fabian in the Winner of the 2012 Latest Fringe Award, Festival Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and Richard II in Jonathan Kay’s 2011 production of Richard II by the Nomadic Academy of Fools.
HIP is a celebration of the ideas, ideals and idiosyncrasies of life and those who paved the way for the freedoms we all enjoy today.
HIP will play as part of the VAULT Festival from the 1st to the 5th February 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.vaultfestival.com/event/hip/2017-02-01/
