ABOUT BESIDE OURSELVES
Formed in 2017, Beside Ourselves Collective is a devised theatre collaboration between LISPA trained Kate Mounce and Fourth Monkey graduate Eleanor Young.
We make energetic, female-led, devised clown theatre that plays with themes of embodiment, female empowerment and faith. Colluding with our personal clowns and the healing power of laughter, we tackle complex topics in inventive and surreally comic ways.
We use our audiences, our singing voices, material from our unconscious, dancing, puppetry, improvisation and myth to create layered narratives.
We’re interested in creating experiential communities with our audiences and to stage the epic in human encounters.
