We used to go very fast. Then we got burnt out

We used to be the faster craftswomen. Till we slowed down.
Now, I'm blogging about sustainable artistic processes at: www.illustratedguidetolife.com

The Honourable Society of Faster Craftswomen

Writing, drawing, audio, animations and theatre by Laura Eades and co
Southwark Playhouse Secrets on Sat 18th April, 9pm

Laura is sitting in a deck chair in a sombrero with lights under the brim. She is having a conversation with a tape player. Her body has tried to go on a ten-minute holiday from her mind, and who can blame her?

Awesome! A candid and brutally honest portrayal - thought the body taking a holiday was (as somebody who has body issues) great - like to imagine that's what my body would do on a break - although it would probably involve excessive drink and drugs! Fantastic, I enjoyed it more than the show I actually paid to come and watch. The carnage at the end with the volleyball was particularly enjoyable.

Wasp Killer
Scratch: Friday 28th November at arch468
Fifteen minutes, twenty-four thoughts about pacifism, masochism, and how the sexes deal with aggression.
There is a wasp's nest in the eaves of my house.
I drink 4 cans of diet coke a day.
My dad laid a karma trip on me about killing the wasps.
Someone from work told me that the sweetener in diet coke was originally developed a
s ant killer, and can be used to poison the wasps ...

"It takes a slow journey upwards as if you're about to take off ... the swirling delivery is like a dream"

"A really inspiring and enjoyable performance - huge talent and a unique voice"

"Desperate - like a tramp in the street who wants to tell you about their life using the beauty of cardboard and the preciousness of drawings"
