366 Days Of Kindness is a new show written and performed by Bernadette Russell and Gareth Brierley of White Rabbit
This new show goes back out on tour from 10th Jan.
On 18th August 2011, after a chance encounter in a post office in Deptford, and in response to the London riots, Bernadette Russell decided to try to be kind to a stranger every single day for a year.
This multi media show tells the heartbreaking, surprising and challenging stories of that year, which began with burning buildings and ended with the flame of the Olympic torch, against a global backdrop of social unrest and economic crisis. Part storytelling, part stand up, part live documentary, featuring a dinner party with surprise guests including the Dalai Lama, Aristotle and Princess Diana, this show attempts to answer the question: is it possible to change the world just by being kind?
We did sell out shows at Norden Farm, Colchester Arts Centre and Birmingham Rep, as well as being invited to the Southbank Centre and the Albany Theatre with the sister projects, the interactive installations “Dear Stranger” and “Coat Tales”
