Frankie Thompson Collects Horrible Things

Thu 13 – Sat 15 Jun 60 minutes
Not a work in progress. No progress will be made. This is a work in regress.

In an experiment that is kind of like Bagpuss except horrible, Frankie Thompson is collecting horrible things.

Things she’s picked out of her ear, found stuck to the bottom of her shoe, retrieved from the back of the sofa and unexpectedly found in a sandwich. She sniffs them, licks them and then puts them into a show.

This is part of her ‘I just need to get this out and see what shape it lands in’ season, around the theme ‘horrible’. At least 70% of the horrible things will have been created in the two days before the show, so please do not come if you’re expecting content, plot and/or structure. Any horrible things that are exactly the flavour she’s looking for will stay, all other horrible things will be recycled responsibly.

If you laugh it’s comedy, if you don’t it’s live art.
