SPRINT SHORTS: This is not an egg

How would you describe your show in one sentence?
The journey through the mind of a man who is trying to find his place in a world of ‘choices.’

Is this your first visit to Sprint, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?
I have performed at Sprint a couple of years ago, there’s always such an amazing variety of performances that are programmed.

How has the show developed on the way to Camden?
I started this show about three years ago, a lot has changed in my life since I stopped working on it. Recently I wanted to look at the show again, extend it and make it relevant to where I am right now in my life.

How have you been preparing for Sprint?
I’ve been surrounded by eggs and using my aversion therapy machine (muscle shock) daily to build up my strength for the performance.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
The performance is task based so I try and push my body mentally and physically throughout in order to answer the questions that I want to explore during the show.

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Sprint (apart from your own!)?
I’m really looking forward to Jamal Harewood’s event big bang that he has co-curated with CPT. It will be interesting to see the starts of new work and be able to offer feedback on them.

If your show was an item being sold on Camden Market, what would it be?
It would probably be one of those temporary tattoos at the little stands. I can never make a choice, I’m quite fickle and you will see that during my show. The tasks during will help me to decide what choice (if any) I make.

This is not an egg is being performed at the Sprint Festival on 17 March 2016
