“She cooks up a storm”

The Scotsman

British-Canadian artist, Bryony Byrne makes and performs live art. She’s interested in community, childhood and the act of performance. She’s got a background in longform improv and clown and her debut comedy feature film, Akela, has won multiple awards internationally. She has trained with Second City, Bryony Kimmings, the Free Association and Philippe Gaulier. She’s performed sold out shows at Soho Theatre in London, Pleasance Islington and The National Football Museum in Manchester, amongst others.  In addition to live performance, her writing has featured in British Vogue, Aesthetica Magazine and the literary magazine, Ghost Parachute. 

When she was ten, her football team won the District championships and she played the recorder on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. It's possible she peaked at ten to be honest.
