Bryony Kimmings: Credible Likeable Superstar Rolemodel

Thu 6 – Fri 7 Mar 2014 | 7pm (60 mins) | £12/£10 (Behaviour day passes available for £20/£16, festival passes available for £48/£38)

In an audacious, provocative protest against flagrant global attempts to sexualise and commodify childhood for profit, award-winning artist Bryony Kimmings and her niece Taylor, age nine, decided to play the global tween machine at its own game by inventing dinosaur-loving, bike-riding, tuna pasta-eating alternative pop star Catherine Bennett.

Credible Likeable Superstar Rolemodel is Taylor’s, and Bryony’s, theatre show. It is set in a fantasy land far from our own, where lines are drawn in the sand, girls become knights, eyeballs are gouged, wars are waged, and people sell their souls. It is a tale of hopeless protection, blind fury, 9-year old brains, and taking over the world with your family.

In typically screwball and humorous fashion Kimmings, creator of acclaimed shows Sex Idiot and 7 Day Drunk, asks the question: What does it really take to be a Credible Likeable Superstar Rolemodel for a child in the 21st century?
