Bryony Kimmings: I’m a Phoenix, Bitch
Kimmings weaves a powerful, dark and joyful masterpiece about motherhood, heartbreak and finding inner strength. Combining ethereal music, personal stories, epic film and feats of human strength.
Ever sunk so deep you felt like you might never make it up for air?
In 2016, Bryony nearly drowned. Postnatal breakdowns, an imploding relationship and an extremely sick child left her sitting beneath the waves hoping she could slowly turn to shell.
Four years later and she is able to deal with life again, but wears the scars of that year like a dark and heavy cloak. Who do we become after trauma? How do we turn pain into power? How do we fly instead of drown?
We will need new myths to survive the end of existence as we know it. Tonight a new legend will be created; that of the invincible and fearless woman; a tale Bryony wishes she had known from birth.
“Bryony Kimmings’ deeply personal show is an exhilarating ride via pop video, horror movie, art installation and therapy session….a double inspiration and a testimony both to human resilience and the healing properties of art” The Guardian
“Her extraordinary new show raises the bar considerably; it’s the best thing she’s ever done.” Scotsman
“Imagine a metaphysical glitter cannon of trauma being fired straight at your chest” Time Out
