A THEATRICAL FAIRYTALE FOR THE FIERCE HEARTED

'The Top 50 Cultural Events of 2020 - The Telegraph

Award winning comedians and Gaulier trained physical performers Helen Duff (as seen in BBC 2’s The Mash Report / BBC 3 / HOLMES & WATSON) and Elf Lyons (as seen on BBC 3/ DAVE TV and ‘The Stand Up Sketch Show’ ITV2) unite in a beautiful and anarchic homage to the absurd life of cult surrealist Leonora Carrington.

 

A runaway, writer, artist and anarchist who refused to be put in a box, Carrington escaped a mental institution via submarine, married an ambassador to escape the Nazis, and made omelettes with her own hair. Helen and Elf would like to take you into her world.

Through vivid and divine mime, clowning, puppetry and more, Duff and Lyons transport the audience into the mind of one of the most eccentric visionaries of the 20th century.
