Cannonballista is the explosive new solo show by Liz Clarke exploring grief, coping mechanisms and things we do to get us through. Betty (Liz’s Super Hero Alter Ego) has been present in her life for a good few years now. And Betty thinks it’s about time she had her own show. This highly charged performance will to bring together; a cannon, a shed, and impossibly high heels, in ways that have never been witnessed before! It also features (if Betty gets her way); the biggest feat of her career and costume changes a plenty, topped off with a huge dollop of glitz.

Liz specializes in working with people who do not normally access the arts, especially people with lived experience of mental health. In the run up to the show, Liz will share her practice and creative process, in a series of workshops for women. Using themes from the show participants will discover their own Super Hero Alter Ego - the parts of ourselves that are extraordinary, untapped and unexpected. The workshops are designed for women with and without mental health issues who want to further their performance experience.
