Ant is one of our Sparks Bristol artists.

I perform poetry, comedy, live art, theatre & music.

I write, I make & edit videos, I facilitate workshops, & I consult on accessibility for organisations, event teams, and productions.

I believe strongly in making work that is loudly imperfect, embraces failure, and is heavily invested in the liveness between performer and audience. I strive to make work that never compromises the truth and is always as accessible as possible. Accessibility is a huge factor in the work I create- there’s enough exclusionary art in the world and I firmly believe we can do better. I am passionate about shaking up the standards that are creating inaccessible worlds for artists and audiences alike.

My practice often centers itself around identity; the selves we present and how external factors can influence and distort them. I always look to make work that people can find themselves in. I love interrogating difficult, sticky themes using comedy as a way to create accessible, endearing, and relatable work.
