Blooming Out is coming to The Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol!!
4th August 8pm
5th August 8pm
“The life of every woman from childhood to adulthood is fulfilled with great discoveries and endless transformations. BLOOMING OUT is a clown show that explores in a light and comic way some of the most intriguing moments in the whole feminine universe. The fascination of beauty, the girly plays, the first time putting on make-up, the body’s development including its feminine parts, the arrival of the period, the first kiss, the oppression and the fear, the maternity, the love, the demands and the social taboos, the work, happiness e growing old; these are some of the many fascinating and scary themes that build the story of this plot. BLOOMING OUT is a clown show using only non-verbal language, creating touching scenes of great power and beauty. A celebration of the feminine being interpreted by two Brazilian women – actresses; clowns.”
“For some, the experiences featured in the show will take you on a relatable trip down memory lane; for others, it acts as a taster for what’s to come. But no matter what gender you are, Blooming Out provides an insight into the feminine world that can be widely appreciated – and there’s never a dull moment.”

“You sometimes need to see something done very well to appreciate that your palette has been spoiled by inferior articles…Blooming Out was at its core beautiful, haunting and unapologetic! It was with me long after I left the theatre.”
Review by The Swindonian
“Quite a brilliant ‘show not tell’ on life and all its dilemmas. Well done with the use of props, facial expressions and vigour. It is quite brilliantly done indeed.”
