Presented by Viki Browne


Viki’s Gran died in December 2014. This solo performance (which wishes it was a duet) is the ongoing product of her grief. Using a family photo album Viki recreates moments from her grans life, fitting herself into the images.

It is about things that were never said, one sided conversations and failing substitutes. This surprising and amusing performance features dancing grapefruits, The Archers, fake tan, giant cigarettes, balloons and Phil Collins. This is a heartfelt piece for anyone who’s ever lost someone they love.

“Grief is putting on fake tan because it makes your skin look more like hers.

Grief is buying a yellow dress, because it was her favourite colour.

Grief is dancing a duet as a solo.”

About the artist

Viki Browne makes solo performance about the pathological, psychological and social challenges of life and death. Interested in the worst of times, she tackles taboo issues in an unflinching, informed, irreverent and compassionate way. Her work is highly visual, comic, surprising and honest.
