Bryony Kimmings is an activist and a fucking loud mouth

Inspired by the taboos, stigmas, anomalies and social injustices she sees around her Kimmings creates mind-blowing, multi-platform art works to provoke change. The work generally has a theatrical outcome but often incorporates many other mediums, including high profile PR and social campaigning.

Generally the work has centred around outlandish “social experiments” that Kimmings conducts with genuine genius intrigue and wholehearted fearless gusto. The artist sets her sights on the impossible and un-conquerable and tries to change public secrets into the year’s hottest topics.

Previous works have seen the artist retracing an STI to its source, spending 7 days in a controlled environment in a constant state of intoxication, becoming a pop star invented and managed by a 9 year old and tackling depression in men

Bryony’s award winning work has toured across the world. Most recently Antifest (Finland), Culturgest (Portugal), Fusebox Festival (Texas), The Southbank Centre (London), Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Aus) and Lisinski Opera House (Croatia). She has also appeared as a guest on As yet Untitled for UKTV.

Her most recent show Fake It Til’ you Make it received universal acclaim and enjoyed sold out runs at the Edinburgh Festival at the Traverse Theatre, The Soho Theatre and the Southbank.

Kimmings also mentors artists, teaches workshops, writes a popular arts blog, speaks on panels and is sometimes on the telly. She is an associate artist at Soho Theatre and is currently working on projects with the Royal Court Theatre, Southbank Centre and Complicite.

Her musical with Complicite A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer opens at the National Theatre in October 2016.
