A BRAVE FACE by Vamos Theatre

Directed by Rachael Savage
Afghanistan: 2009. Under bright blue skies, a small girl stands and watches the soldier. She smiles, just like his sister…
Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training is complete, combat is a buzz; he’s part of a team, and knows his job. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone. And then, when he returns home, the trouble really begins.
Created from two years of research with ex and serving soldiers, families and health professionals, A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. With compassion and fearlessness, Vamos brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told.
A Brave Face is suitable for audiences aged 12 years and upwards, and is accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike.
CHEAP THRILLS (working title) Street Show
Debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018.
Mad Mouazelle is a feisty charming trick-less clown... No jokes. No juggling. No music. But unbelievably entertaining.
LOCKED UP Clown Theatre
Devised and performed by Sophia Knox-Miller & Cara McClendon.
Performed at the New York Clown Theatre Festival 2015.
Two clowns embark on a fantastical adventure from within their prison cell. Armed with a couple of spoons and some dental floss, follow the orange-clad duo as they escape to Broadway, end up on a desert island, get whisked away by a dragon, only to end up back in where they started.
Clown, slapstick, and mediocre mouth-foley. 60 minutes of wordless story telling most enjoyed by audiences over 10 years old.
