HIP

An interactive theatre show by Jolie Booth, producer of the award-winning Backstage in Biscuit Land... A squatter makes her way up to a long-forgotten flat above a shop in the centre of Brighton. A flat full of someone else’s past. A women’s hip bone lies on the side, amongst diaries, letters and clutter. In a tale of addiction, sexuality, mortality, choices and enlightenment, she embarks on a journey to discover how one might avoid dying alone, and losing one’s hip bone in the process.

Based around found objects, this semi-autobiographical one woman show starts by introducing you to a flat caught between two timelines and personalities: the home of Anne Clarke during 70s bohemian Brighton, and a squat established by Jolie in 2002.

HIP transports the audience, in this extra-live performance, to a cosy living room with hypnotic OHP, cushions, incense, tequila and nibbles. Jolie’s soothing and passionate storytelling interweaves Annie's real letters and diaries with vestiges from her own life, to reveal an immediate and clear association.

'Hip is an hour drifting through the Jungian collective unconsciousness [and is] an authentic and human exploration of inherently unstable modern tribalism.' The Sick of the Fringe
