In a society that demands success, is admitting failure taboo? SKELETONS (Or, How I Learned to Love Fucking Up) interrogates our perfection-obsessed culture, through a mix of cringe worthy confessions, live games and surreal self-help mantras. SKELETONS (Or, How I Learned to Love Fucking Up) celebrates fucking up, being vulnerable – and body hair.

Reviews and Feedback

“A hilarious send-up of the burgeoning life-coach industry” –★★★★ LondonTheatre1

“When are you going to get a proper job?” – Lee’s Mum

About the company

Performance Anxiety was spawned from the chaotic consciousness of Lee Anderson and Adam Loxley. The company makes stuff about failure, scraping together biography, music, politics, advertising, pop culture, stupid costumes, stuff found in skips – inject it with a shot of surrealism – and hope that it touches someone, somewhere. SKELETONS (Or, How I Learned to Love Fucking Up) is their first fuck up, and originally appeared at The Pleasance’s LITMUS Fest in Autumn 2016.

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.
