creative development showing of ‘chameleon’ at the mill adelaide
On Friday, July 5, Britt’s Spotlight Residency at The Mill Adelaide came to and end with a culminating creative development showing for invited guests. Throughout Britt’s residency she had been working with Hew Parham as Director and Ben Brooker as Dramaturg to delve further into the world of the bouffon and the clown. How can we tell these stories in a way that give the audience more space to come to their own conclusions, more grey, where the lead up slow-burning, and the message smacks you in the face without realising.
Britt would like to thank Katrina Lazaroff and Tim Watts at The Mill Adelaide, Hew Parham - her incredibly generous, insightful, playful, master clown director, Ben Brooker - the dapper man with all the words, Jules Mayer - extraordinaire supporter/videographer and Ramsay Taplin photographer for the evening. Now a little more refining in the rehearsal room and we open in a month at ZOO Playground in Edinburgh! xx

Flabbergast theatre’s ‘THE SWELL MOB’, ADELAIDE CABARET FESTIVAL
The Adelaide Cabaret Festival is well under way and Britt has been performing with UK’s Flabbergast Theatre in their immersive show, THE SWELL MOB, presented by Adelaide Festival Centre.
Here’s what Adelaide reviewers are saying about the show -
“An interactive theatre piece that will knock you dead if you let it.”
****1/2 WEEKEND NOTES
“Riveting, electrifying, and unknowingly attractive… their deceitful and deceptive actions that will charm you and make you swoon with tingling curiosity.
Treat this dystopian world like a gift that needs to be unwrapped to its core to reveal an era that will change your life in a span of just 75 minutes (by the end of which, you'll wish it didn't end!).”
**** LIMELIGHT MAGAZINE
[A] 19th century world of pickpockets, spivs, soldiers, wenches, singers and puppeteers…I kissed a pickpocket’s hand, played five finger fillet, sang bawdy songs, witnessed a fist fight and danced with a buxom wench.
“formidable physical theatre skills allied with cleverly underplayed acting expertise….It was innately disturbing”
