That is so CB!
Here we are rocking out in full mummy regalia with the amazing Catherine Bennett. You don’t know who she is? Well, wise up and check out her amazing website!
But seriously, Bryony Kimmings’ latest project ‘Credible, Likeable, Superstar Role Model’ is beyond brilliant. A pop star as imagined by a nine-year old? What took the world so long! I could go on about this for days but I’ll just say that I am in love with everything about it. Here we have a pop star who wears knee length skirts and great big glasses; who works in a museum and writes songs about polar bears and lazy people (finally, someone not singing about being in a club!!!!). I’m just in awe really. Brave, interesting and wonderful.
Bryony herself is pretty wonderful too and asked me to choreograph a ‘mummy’ dance for the Apathy video (that’s mummy as in Ancient Egypt, kids – don’t make the same mistake I made). Suggested inspiration was Daft Punk’s ‘Around the World’ with a bit of vogueing thrown in for good measure. We had a super fun day in the paleontology department of Manchester museum for the video shoot and now Sparklemotion do a full mummy routine at special CB events, including the Soho Theatre kids show you can see in the picture. That’s us on the floor. ‘Tis a glamourous life!
