Directed By Bryony Kimmings

production information

Live artist Bryony Kimmings  - 7 Day Drunk; Sex Idiot (Edinburgh Fringe / Soho Theatre) - presents the culmination of her latest social experiment.

Inspired by the lack of positive role models for young people, Bryony and her nine year-old niece Taylor created a new breed of pop star - Catherine Bennett - and went on an extraordinary journey to make her famous. This is a fantastic opportunity to see and feed back on Bryony’s latest show at a crucial stage in its development as she heads for the Edinburgh Fringe.

Writer / Performer

"The Almeida Festival presents an ideal opportunity to try something super experimental in a real life theatre (as a performance artist this chance is rare and exciting!) AND to a new type of audience who may not have seen ANYTHING like this before!" Bryony Kimmings

Bryony Kimmings is a Performance Artist based in the East Region, she creates full-length theatre shows, cabaret works, homemade music, sound installations and documentary films. Her work is larger than life, outrageous, visually loud, often dangerous, somewhat unpredictable but above all fun. She is inspired by the taboos and anomalies of British culture and her autobiographical themes promote the airing of her own dirty laundry to oil conversations on seemingly difficult subjects. Her work follows real life social experiments that she embarks upon with genuine genius intrigue and wholehearted, fearless gusto.

Bryony’s work has been seen in galleries and theatres across the world, most recently at Frieze Art Fair, Soho Theatre, Antifest (Finland), Culturgest (Portugal), Fusebox Festival (Texas), The Southbank Centre, Brighton Festival, Duckie, The Roundhouse, The Barbican, Wales Millennium Centre, Latitude, The Secret Garden Party and Assembly. Her 2010 work Sex Idiot won the Total Theatre Award and her 2011 show 7 Day Drunk was awarded a Brick Award nomination and Time Out Critics Choice award.
