Hello TEAM Panel, and a wary greeting to 2017.

So. TEAM Panel. Me. TEAM panel AND me. Oof. Let’s start with me. Narcissists never change.I’m Jeremy, I’m a writer, performer, professional idiot and general weirdo.  I’m based in Cardiff and now I’m on TEAM Panel.  That’s not really saying anything new though.Shit. Ok. So I’ve applied for Panel before but this time I was successful. Yay.  I guess that makes me a successful failure, but then I always was an oxymoron. Without the oxy.So as you may or may not know (those are the two options) TEAM…See More

Dirty, Gifted and Welsh

It’s just past 4pm on Wednesday and I’m already blazing down the caffeine highway. I’ve been rocking it since last night. I think one of the problems with wanting to write, or do anything that has a creative component and deadlines, is that you fall back in to bad habits. Energy drinks. Sweets. Tesco value pork pies. Late nights with endless cups of coffee. You fill your body with enough stimulants and shit and hope the resulting explosion is accompanied by the juddering birthing of your ideas…See More

Profile Information

What I do:
Writer, Performer, facilitator and professional idiot.
A little more about me:
Play and collaboration lie at the heart of my work. I am co- founder, writer and creative director for the theatre company “Functionally Dysfunctional”. I am also one of the companies’ actors. Our company was set up to create the type of work we wanted to see and felt the arts scene was lacking. We use a mixture of scripting and devised work, often leaving gaps for improvisation between characters and audience. We believe that these live, irreplaceable moments are where theatre truly exists.
As a writer I like to create worlds slightly adjacent to our own, places where the rules and flaws are exaggerated and the consequences magnified. This can be through fantastic curses, ghosts, memory or new technology. Tragicomedy, black humour and magical realism are of particular interest.
As a performer I’m keenly interested in how physicality informs a role as much as a well-researched inner life. Growing out of the training I’ve done with physical theatre and clowning companies I’m fascinated by the way games and physical tasks can be the founding layer of a dramatic scene. A way to ease actors in to finding the emotional weight needed via their bodies.
My facilitation work is based on a foundation of play, personal truth and inclusivness. I believe art is vital for giving individuals representation and voice and want to enable everyone to have the ability to create.

I've had the pleasure of working with some wonderful companies like Hijinx Theatre, Punchdrunk Enrichment, Told by and Idiot and Tin Shed Theatre.

I'm experienced in running workshops and happy to talk about my working methods with anyone and anyone. Feel free to send me a script or pick my brain.

Much love,
Jeremy
Location:
Cardiff
Projects I’m working on:
Exploring ways to turn my short play for young people "No One Wants To Be In Hufflepuff" in to a longer piece.

Functionally Dysfunctional are seeking more venues to expose Cleft to and looking at touring our show about the seedy world of psychics "Behind The Veil". We also have a new podcast show coming in May; a sketch show about conspiracies, madness and mayhem called "Conspicuously Inconspicuous".

I am also research and developing a storytelling show about drag and gender identity with the wonderful Zoe Goodachre.

Finale! Or Intrusion, Contortion and Confusion

My final day in Edinburgh was quite possibly my favourite. I saw some wonderfully varied theatre today, all if it good. So without further ado let’s get on with it.

Things From Before are an LA based performance collective in Edinburgh with an adaption of “The Intruder”, originally by Maurice Maeterlinck. I am unfamiliar with the original text but from what I’ve gathered Things From Before have really worked to make it their own. The text is a one room play about a family waiting as a…

Tired! Shadows, Satan and Mythical Beasts

Our third day in Edinburgh found Frank and myself a little worse for wear, worn out from trekking from venue to venue and late night shows after only two days. Lord knows how people manage a month. Today we took it a little easier, spacing things out a bit more and making sure e had plenty of time for travel etc. It made sense then that our first show was only round the corner from the hotel.

“Yeti” (pronounced Yet-eye) was performed by Gary from Leeds, a performance poet. Part of the…
