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
[Head through the entrance and up the stairs when you get to The Hive, Dalston, and make you way to the cafe where you can grab a drink before you are collected by the performer]
PAY WHAT YOU CAN
Some Kriya Arts performances are priced on a Pay What You Can basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see theatre, more often. Pay What You Can not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help Kriya Arts to pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash in an envelope you'll be supplied with or by paypal.
We look forward to welcoming you!
