‘Stuff’ is a love story but not one you’ve seen a million times before, this is another kind of love story, maybe everybody’s love story. Using clown, mime, dance and the audience ‘Stuff’ is playful, fun, sad and familiar.
The result is a highly energetic and entertaining, physical piece that takes its audience on a journey through the fragility, hilarity and awkwardness that love can sometimes entail.
‘Stuff’ is predominantly a non-verbal 60 minute solo show that is perfect for studio spaces but can adapted to a larger environment if needed. It was developed from interviews of people from the ages of 6 through to 84 on the subjects of Love and human connection.
The show has been directed by Director Cassie Friend (Redcape Theatre http://www.redcapetheatre.co.uk) and is currently on a UK summer tour.
It was lit beautifully by Jai Morjaria https://www.jaimorjaria.com

See reviews here:
“Exceptionally comical, beautifully choreographed and enormously clever. Just brilliant”
The Yorkshire times
“…“what is love?”, Kempton investigates the essence and force of this crucial, essential and human, yet intangible thing. Brilliant, beautiful and hysterical moments roll into one another endlessly, and there’s not a moment of boredom in this witty and well-constructed piece. It offers exactly the right balance when looking for something light: funny, theatrical but with a distinctive, meaningful theme. Adults, teenagers, children”
“Endearingly accomplished and unashamedly focused on connecting with the audience”
“This is an intimate performance which made me feel lucky to have found it, one of the Fringe’s hidden gems.”
“His ability to create an entertaining and wacky atmosphere for all ages was done flawlessly, it certainly turned out to be a pleasure”
