    Brixton

    The show

    Sending up & stripping down the layers we build between us, witness the surprising & beguiling confrontation of a bonkers bag lady & a struggling business man, fusing live music, physical comedy & puppetry into a celebratory, interactive performance exploring social isolation.
    Developed through creative conversations with older Brixton residents, BeautifulMess explore pertinent questions relevant to the pavements they play on, unpicking the next big epidemic through their signature style.

    Put your phone away, your tablet back in your bag, connect to the here and now – this performance will hug you tight without letting go!
