Olly

Contemporary performance/theatre maker

"~~ Hello! I’m olly, a theatre maker/performance artist based in Liverpool, having recently graduated an MA at Salford University in Contemporary Performance Practice. I make autobiographical solo work, usually about the shit that’s currently going wrong at that current point in my life. I play with liveness, authenticity, fragmenting, layering and getting things wrong. My latest work “The Ballad of Me and My Brain” is described as “An ode to mental instability”. The sentiment behind that being both deeply sarcastic due to my personal struggle in dealing with it, but also absolutely sincere in celebrating that HELL YEAH I can confront this in playful and meaningful ways.
