Holly Stoppit’s Work-In-Progress
Bristol's renowned fool shaman and the artistic director of Beyond The Ridiculous steps back onto the stage for the first time in years. Is this still her place? Come and help her find out
Holly Stoppit is a director, facilitator, university lecturer, dramatherapist and artistic director of Beyond The Ridiculous. Holly specialises in creating live, playful, interactive, improvised and devised performance.
Somewhere along the road, Holly stopped performing.
A little voice has been growing inside for the last few years, whispering “Maybe I want to do a show”. The Wardrobe Theatre have given Holly this opportunity to give that voice some space.
Each month Holly will be showing unfinished work, born out her own exploratory process. She’ll be dragging in collaborators to support her with music, lighting and sound. It’ll be a casual affair, you won’t need to dress up! Each month will tackle a different theme. You’ll get a sneaky peek into Holly’s creative process and get to watch and influence her journey as she inches back onto the stage!
“A grand master of fools, some may claim her as their queen, a shining leader of a growing cult of foolishness in Bristol and beyond.”
“Holly Stoppit has the expressive eyes of Wallace’s Gromit and the physicality of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
