    Helen Seymour

    Helen Seymour

    Helen Seymour is a spoken-poet-word-artist-human-performance-person based in Canterbury, and the writer and performer of the shows ‘To Helen Back’ and ‘Helen Highwater’. We speak about Helen’s performance beginnings in poetry slams and the early influences which inspired her to bring an element of surprise into her work and play with audience expectations, how being onstage invited her to be and share more of who she really is, what makes the collaboration with her director work as well as it does and how she sees success as being standing by everything you do and being content with that.

    Michelle Donkin

    Michelle Donkin

    Michelle Donkin is a writer and producer and the co-founder of Brighton based Cast Iron Theatre. Our conversation begins with how childhood Michelle was inspired by Star Trek to write herself onto the bridge of the starship Enterprise before realising that exploring human relationships was more interesting than space. We talk about her time spent studying film and scriptwriting at the the National film and Television School, her move into theatre and producing and universal themes like finding your voice and creating what is authentic to you, helping others as you go and how to stay kind to yourself as you live and create.

    Sarah James is an artist based in Brighton. She creates artwork through drawing in mixed media, exploring birds and wildlife and architecture. In our conversation we talk about Sarah gave herself ‘the job’ of artist as a child, the beauty she finds in the ugly, dishevelled and overlooked, the importance of seeking inspiration in the work of others, the meditative and calming experience she finds in drawing and the positive effect this has on her mental health, sharing artwork online and how she gets herself unstuck.

    Scott Lee Andrews is an artist and songwriter from Wales who has released and performed music as Exit_International, Mutation and Jaws of Deaf. We talk about growing up in a small town and finding the heroes in the alternative music culture with its big characters and musical and visual inspirations, Scott’s decision to study music production instead of pursuing going to Oxford, creating work that subverts mundane reality and pushes buttons, his growing appreciation for the fundamental power of art and music to connect with and move people, and how attention from BBC Introducing put Exit_International’s song about a petrol powered dildo on to the Radio 1 playlist.
