Based around found objects, this semi-autobiographical one woman show starts by introducing you to a flat caught between two timelines and personalities: the home of Anne Clarke during 70s bohemian Brighton, and a squat established by Jolie in 2002.
HIP transports the audience, in this extra-live performance, to a cosy living room with hypnotic OHP, cushions, incense, tequila and nibbles. Jolie’s soothing and passionate storytelling interweaves Annie's real letters and diaries with vestiges from her own life to reveal an immediate and clear association.

An interactive theatre show by Jolie Booth, producer of the award-winning Backstage in Biscuit Land.
A squatter makes her way up to a long-forgotten flat above a shop, a flat full of someone else’s past. A woman’s hip bone lies on the side, amongst diaries, letters and clutter. In a tale of addiction, sexuality, mortality, choices and enlightenment, Jolie embarks on a journey to discover how one might avoid dying alone, and losing one’s hip bone in the process. This true story will take you on an evening of immersive theatre, as part of the UK's first ever EXTRA-LIVE tour.
