Double Bill - Hannah Joy Spencer / Ant Lightfoot

  • New Art Exchange 39-41 Gregory Blvd England, NG7 6BE United Kingdom (map)

Ant Lightfoot’s AM I A TERRIBLE PERSON is a comedic look into the mind of an OCD & depression sufferer. It's a show about failure, messing things up and how it feels to be a 20-something artist with an increasingly intrusive and overbearing mental illness. It's endearing, funny but never shy. Combining elements of stand-up comedy, live art and movement, this piece aims to celebrate the discussion of mental health in a light-hearted but touching manner.

Ant Lightfoot is an artist and performer based in Bristol. He uses comedy, text, the body and strong autobiography to address courageous & taboo subjects. Ant is interested in using humour to discuss difficult, unspoken topics and immerse an audience into endearing & often uncomfortable spaces. Ant graduated from The University of Worcester in Fine Art & Drama in 2014.
