Look After Your Knees is a new solo performance by theatre maker, performer and physical comedian Natalie Bellingham, about the pain and beauty of growing older, connecting and unravelling, holding on and letting go. This  performance uses comedy, storytelling and movement to celebrate being human in all its banality, sprinkled with joy and ridiculousness. A visual and physical collage performed by a clown delving into the space inside us left behind by time. It’s about a person trying to unwrap the new version of themselves in a world they don’t recognise and a life they seem uncomfortably in charge of. It’s about what comes next.

Showing at CHARGE Studio Theatre in CAPA College.
