I'm a Phoenix, BitchMayfest
Bryony Kimmings weaves a powerful, dark and joyful masterpiece about motherhood, heartbreak and finding inner strength.
In 2016, Bryony nearly drowned. Postnatal breakdowns, an imploding relationship and an extremely sick child left her sitting beneath the waves hoping she could slowly turn to shell. Four years later and she is able to deal with life again, but wears the scars of that year like a dark and heavy cloak.
Tonight a new legend will be created, that of the invincible and fearless woman – a tale Bryony wishes she had known from birth.
Bryony returns to Bristol following a sell-out run at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and an Offies 2019 Award win.

Co-commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Arts Centre Melbourne, Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts and supported by Latitude Festival. Supported by the British Council, and supported by Arts Council England using public funding. In association with Avalon
