‘A mercurial and captivating performer.’
Exeunt Magazine

There is a place where that which is broken can be mended;
thoughts can be heard;
old bones speak;
and rocks want revenge…

In Trickster’s wonderland a man mimics a waterfall and almost gets away with it, a woman hides her doll-sized sister in her plaited hair, and we all journey to the edge of the earth.

Expect gleeful deceit, anarchic tomfoolery and everything earthy, brutal and bold
