Arnolfini - est 1961

Arnolfini invites you to join Liz Clarke & Company for this anarchic workshop with your family; and Banish the Beigester (or smash the patriarchy) with us!

I am really inspired as a mother of two boys. We’re going home to dance with a glitter cannon” Workshop participant

Celebrating all our identities and inspired by the narrative of our mother & son performance collaboration I’m Bitter About Glitter, a show for anyone who has ever been small with big questions & a big imagination, or whose family doesn’t quite fit inside the box- we will create magical lands and think big thoughts.

We will use props, found poetry, sound and most importantly – your ideas – to discover our inner glitter gods and give them a chance to shine.

Following our short documentary about the making of I’m Bitter About Glitter, we will nourish conversation around finding the strength to be ourselves; and what to do when the world seems a positively un-glittery place. We will finish with a joyous and riotous finale, with a few hidden surprises to take forward into our daily lives.

An inspiration for us all to be more brave
