Presented by Jamie Wood
When I am still for any length of time, someone finds me and tells me about their life. My girlfriend says this makes me like a tree that all dogs want to piss up. Slow man tree. My Granddad taught me how to listen, and one other valuable lesson. But I can’t remember what the second lesson was. There’s a blank. So this year I walked back to where he was born to try to find out – a homemade pilgrimage, a return to roots, slow motion time travel.
The show will be something else entirely. Still living a dream.
“This isn’t wacky for wacky’s sake. It’s oppositional and fierce and idealistic.” ★ ★ ★ ★ WhatsOnStage (review of O No!)
“His surreal imagination is like being sucked down a rabbit hole full of joy.” ★ ★ ★ ★ Fest
“Jamie Wood is a performer to fall in love with.” ★ ★ ★ ★ Exeunt (review of O No!)
“a lecture in weird humour, delivered by an expert… a natural clown” ★ ★ ★ ★ A Younger Theatre (on Beating McEnroe)

About the artist
Jamie Wood is an international performer and director. His work reflects a training combining fine art, theatre, clown and dance and ranges from the comic and darkly surreal plays of The Frequency D’Ici (Paperweight) to the physical and visual poetics of Petra’s Pulse (Aegean Fatigue). He has received widespread critical praise for his two previous shows, O No! and Beating McEnroe.
This is a work-in-progress performance, and the show is still in the process of being created. There is an opportunity for you to feedback to the artists, which will be used to further develop the piece.
