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.
Previous works have seen her 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: Antifest (Finland), Culturgest (Portugal), Fusebox Festival (Texas), The Southbank Centre (London), Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Aus) and Lisinski Opera House (Croatia).
Her work also extends to broadcasting. Bryony created the documentary Artist in Residence: The Sex Clinic (Channel 4) and has appeared on As Yet Untitled(UKTV) and Where’s the F in News (BBC Radio 4) multiple times. Kimmings co-wrote the box office smash feature film, Last Christmas (Universal), with Emma Thompson, directed by Paul Feig.
Bryony’s most recent stage show I’m a Phoenix, Bitch has received stellar acclaim and sold out shows. She performed two runs of the show at BAC in London and an extended run of the sold out show at the Edinburgh Fringe receiving more 5 star reviews and praise. She has since performed the show at The HOME Theatre in Manchester, and Sydney and Perth festivals with more UK dates to come.
Kimmings also mentors artists, teaches workshops, writes a popular arts blog and speaks on panels. She is an associate artist at Soho Theatre and has worked on projects with the Royal Court Theatre, Southbank Centre and Complicite.
