Want to know more about the Fools of The Nomadic Academy?
Danny Mullins is a musician who likes to fool around. He’s in his fifth year with the Academy for Fools.
He’s currently enjoying teaching Edinburgh Fools Academy, hosting community sing song sessions and working with Edinburgh’s Beltaine Fire Society as a “red man”. Meaning everything that is RED! It’s tribal, it’s primal, passion, power and Love. He’s working with the group to bring out their sensual and sexual energies by mixing in what he has learnt from the “Awaken Love” Tantra group to develop the “Fool Around” workshops. Playful and also respectful, personal boundaries will be mindfully observed throughout: and stretched out gently.
A touching and tickling performer, Danny also enjoys writing about himself from a detached “third person” perspective to make it sound as though he’s much more wordly-wise and well known than he actually is.
Who am I? A big O until we meet in the world of our imagination…
You want information? Well then, on a more practical level I’m a gardener, a recent Mumma, a wife, a performer, a piano player, a publisher and a writer.
With the Academy for Fools, I’m working on a play called the Living Museum of Marjorie – from which we’ll be performing characters and tantalising snippets during this festival for fools.
…These Old Fools – they are sad and dusty old relics from bygone eras who can move into beauty full of wonder.
Bruce Knight is a performer and also looks after Spilsby Theatre in Lincolnshire. He worked for many years as a lighting technician.
He first began performing as an aerialist, on trapeze dressed as Elvis, when his circus hobby got out of hand!
Since then he has played many characters on earth, directed community theatre projects and trained for several years with Jonathan Kay and also regularly performs as ‘Jim” with the Brighton based company Copperdollar.
Joanne Tremarco paints bold images with oils and your imagination. She is a blundering psychic, a kamikaze perfectionist, a wild woman who is afraid of the dark, an unhealed healer, a lover of clean tea towels, a prolapsed catholic who dreams far too much whilst cycling her bike. She loves cleaning (but it takes too long), gardening and looking after other people’s children.
She loves performing without a parachute, making audiences laugh and cry.
Aside from working with The Nomadic Academy for Fools, she also huffs and puffs her way through Physical Fest each year with her friends from Tmesis Theatre and she works from time to time for Friction Arts.
If Chris Murray were here, what would he do? How would Christopher Murray deal with this problem? Look! He left his shoes behind, lets walk a mile in them and see…just one of the many conversations I wish people would have after meeting me.
Natalie Fee is a performer, poet and presenter, trained by Jonathan Kay in the art of the Fool. She performs regular improvised shows in theatres around Bristol, using music, humour and comedy to open up the challenges we face as individuals and as a global community.
