You Aren't Doing It Wrong (If No One Knows What You're Doing)



#FindYour Funny, Weird, Story

An interactive solo performance about failure, feeling like an idiot and music, by Rachel Blackman and her creative team.

Rachel comes from a family of brilliant achievers who make music, but she can barely pull off chopsticks on the xylophone. She started making this show four years ago, before covid hit, the environment collapsed and theatre died. Oh well. Let's see what we can conjure anyway, in the face of depressing news and terrible odds. Join Rachel as she dives headlong into the car crash of perfectionism, imposter syndrome and non-award winning moments.

Part confessional, part invocation, but really a collective celebration of our right to fail.

You will feel ridiculous
And ridiculousness is good for you.
To feel ridiculous and sensitive is a part of freedom
- Philipe Gaullier

Created by Stillpoint, featuring writing and performance by Rachel Blackman. Director Emma Roberts, special guest Emiliana Torrini, producer Kate Laird, photographer Hugh Fox. Early Research & Development with Toby Park, Martin Noble and Miranda Flemming. Originally a Brighton Festival Commission supported by Arts Council England.
