Pride Bristol

From the darkened room of my studio where I am tinkering (on a current super secret film project ssh), I stepped out on my stilts into the sunshine and rainbows of the Pride Bristol festival! Great crowd, good times.

Cabaret Abattoir

Had a great night performing and stilt walking for Cabaret Abattoir on Saturday. I made some Dogma-inspired bloody wing stumps with beautiful feathered shoulder pads for the occasion, photos are now up at www.joe-clarke.com

The Birthday of the Infanta

Last autumn I was invited by the lovely director Emily Gray of Trestle Theatre Company to their arts base in London to discuss my ideas and inspiration for a stage adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Birthday of the Infanta, after having spent three months earlier on in the year developing my take on the bittersweet fairy tale.
Watching the one-woman whirlwind that is actress Georgina Roberts in rehearsals, I could tell this was going to be an exciting show to witness. Georgina is a superb mistress of transformation, moving from her portrayal of each character to the next with such ease and imagination that makes her performance an absolute delight to behold.

Trestle Company's 'The Birthday of the Infanta' is now touring at various venues throughout London, Bath and others from the beginning of March right up until May. You can book tickets here
