‘Ich Bin Ein, No Thanks’ at Ausform Platform, Bristol

Amazing fun doing the Platform in Bristol. The show is taking shape. Ausform is such a brilliant collective. The work leapt and screamed and wept. The show’s switch from comic melodrama into something more poetic is very tricky. In its shorter format it worked and I enjoyed unsettling the audience but the interplay will be more difficult if the show wants to go further, which I think it should. I shall keep thinking about cities, keep thinking about love and Berlin and see where the show takes me. First of all I know it will take me to The Gate Theatre as part of The Forest Fringe residency. I hope to add a few more surprises before then.


Lovely Bristol audience were very into their aqua fitness routine.
