Spinning WheelThe Theatre on The Downs
Small towns. Big books. Do things really need to change?
A weird and wonderful peek at the semi-secret world of Alcoholics Annonymous, through the eyes of a woman who might not belong there.
Commissioned by The Wardrobe Ensemble and in association w/ Blind Summit, Hannah Kumari presents Spinning Wheel - an interdisciplinary examination of sobriety and the rule book.
Hannah Kumari is a performer, writer, puppeteer & theatremaker based in Somerset, she makes work inspired by her own experiences. Her one-woman show ENG-ER-LAND, directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair, was programmed for a sold-out run at Jermyn Street Theatre as part of their offie-winning Footprints Festival, and at Camden People’s Theatre as part of SPRINT 2021. Hannah will tour ENG-ER-LAND to 13 venues in Spring 2022.
Supported using public funding from Arts Council England and by Lighthouse Arts Centre Poole.
writer/performer Hannah Kumari’s Eng-er-Land is optimistic, skilled at tackling the smile of acceptance, the shibboleths of exclusion and knowing the difference. The work’s terrific energy, Kumari’s powers of engagement and moving constantly as if about to score a winning goal of her own (she does), leave you alert and exhilarated
a joy to watch
