Have you ever thought you're a total idiot? Good news! You probably are.
There’s a whole world of beautiful performance to be made if we can get in touch with our our magnificent inner idiot, take a risk, follow our impulse and find the pleasure in being completely ridiculous.
In this workshop we’ll play a lot of games, laugh at each other, laugh at ourselves, perhaps cry a bit (hope not too much crying), and get some great insight into who we are as performers and the incredible potential to be found in working with what we’ve got.
Lucy Hopkins trained at the schools of Jacques Lecoq and Philippe Gaulier. She is a high priestess of idiot and one of the UK’s best known female clowns, touring her genre-busting ceremonial shows and workshops around the UK and Europe. She lives in Worcester and she likes it.

Wilding Emma Bourke and Ildikó Rippel
Malvern Cube - Theatre
Date & Time: Sunday 12th November 8pm-9pm
Join us for Wilding, a darkly humorous and politically charged performance exploring radical protest and feminism by Ildikó Rippel and Emma Bourke, a descendant of the militant suffragette Emily Wilding Davison.
Facing the current threat by the UK government to remove the human right to protest, this performance celebrates rebellion and explores violence as a legitimate tool to fight an oppressive system. Combining testimonies by Emily Davison with autobiographical confession, Wilding merges archival footage with original video projection mapped onto an array of cardboard placards, as the performer’s present personal protests, Euro-Punk and a pantomime horse.
