Susannah Hewlett

Cross breeding live art, comedy, theatre, sound and film for over 15 years Susannah Hewlett is delighted to present to you a buffet selection of her finest cold cuts. A platter of audio interventions, televisual highlights and be-wigged characters.

Fixated on popular culture, her work challenges the comfort of audiences by using comedy as a strategy to disarm – scratching through the shiny Saturday night TV dazzle or looking past the kindly smile to reveal unpalatable truths about the human condition.

Fierce Highlight:

The Great British Cack Off – Sunday 20 October, MAC, 12–4pm

The ultimate poo making battle using only peanut butter, chocolate spread and oats – where passionate amateurs compete to be crowned the UK’s Best Cack Master! The judges look for signature style, technical excellence and showstopping qualities!

‘as intimate as a colonic irrigation and, if it’s possible, funnier...’

Fierce Says

We can’t think of an artist who has made us laugh more over the years than Susannah Hewlett. From the show in a caravan with some poor bloke tied up in the toilet, to a new born baby dressed up as a snake in a participatory family pet show and perennial idiot Chris Titmus. Su is our first official festival artist in residence – look out for her subtle
and sometimes not so subtle interventions across the festival
