Heartache.Heartbreak
An on-going gift of a work by Bryony Kimmings. Heartache.Heartbreak. is an endless letter to lost loves across the world. Begun in Portugal as part of a Forest Fringe residency this durational work seeks to eradicate loneliness, love pains and stupid tears by turning heartache and heartbreak into objects of ridicule. This Autumn Kimmings lands in Shepherds Bush and asks its residents for its cures for heartache. Connecting to the psyche of an area, asking its community for soul soup and stories, Kimmings then creates small pieces of performance for those who help her. Each evening these are played out like a jukebox of agony aunt solutions, old wives tales and straight talking slaps. This show is for anyone whose ever cried into soup alone, banged down doors or grasped at their chest in the night. Quick witted, endlessly chatted and oh so totally true… join Kimmings as she fights heartache and laughs right at love!

Solfatara
What happens when your fear comes round for dinner, and your deepest, darkest thoughts refuse to lie low?

Solfatara [def]: openings in volcanic terrain that emit hot, sulphurous gases. We are full of these geological phenomena, orifices that allow our insides to surface.

Witty, fast paced and hilarious, a young couple’s frustrations explode with catastrophic honesty as a masked figure dares them to voice their true feelings.

Performed in Spanish with English surtitles, the translation takes on a subversive life of its own.
