Daisy Disley Doesn’t Panic (Sharing)

Sold Out
A woman (literally) wrestles with her emotions after the death of her mother. A work-in-progress sharing of Maisie Whitehead's new work.

Daisy’s mum got really sick and died. But Daisy is determined to keep going, despite the fact that she’s being followed around by a man in a scruffy suit who keeps making her life difficult - the funny thing is, no one else seems to see him.

Join Daisy in her battle against Ian the invisible man, then look on dubiously as she tries to wrestle him into the bathroom cabinet.

Weaving together aerial circus, clown and object puppetry with live narration, the project aims to take a look at the good, the bad, the ugly and the ridiculous of facing bereavement in a culture that struggles with the reality of death.

The performance will be a sharing of work in progress at the end of an initial period of R&D and will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.

Devised and performed by Maisie Whitehead, Malik Ibheis and Lizzie Muncey; directed by Poppy Rowley; mentored by Angela de Castro. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Part of Jacksons Lane's Transmission 2019, our annual talent development programme in which up to six circus companies are invited to develop work in our building. The emphasis is on experimentation and play, with no pressure to produce or finish work.
