No Fixed Address are actors and theatre-makers Kate Austen and Georgina Periam. Kate and Georgina have worked on many projects together since first meeting during their training at East 15 Acting School and are now exploring a new collaboration.
No Fixed Address is keen to make work which puts female narratives at the forefront and doesn’t shy away from the issues which are facing young women today in our, still heavily, patriarchal society. Kate and Georgina intend to use their residency to explore the way women in today’s society deal with the modern pressures of having it all, enjoying having it all and portraying to everyone else that you are enjoying having it all, all the time. Using their existing research on the ways that women can fall under the radar, even with good support, they now aim to develop this into a theatre piece which examines the causes and effects of this on the lives of young people. They will be developing this work through collaboration with other artists, including directors, writers, movement and vocal specialists to tell this story through a variety of mixed media.
Kate graduated from East 15 in 2010. Since graduating she has been fortunate enough to play great roles such as Techelles in “Tamburlaine the Great” at the Tristan Bates and Edith in “Mr Kolpert” at the Lion and Unicorn. Kate also founded a unique theatre company called Doughnut Productions, the original swivel seat theatre company. This year she has been lucky enough to expand her knowledge of working in puppetry, completed a tour of a new play “Owls” which explores suicide and mental health whilst supporting the fantastic work of the Samaritans and during the summer completed an open-air production of King Lear at the Valley of the Rocks, Exmoor.
Georgina trained on the MA course at East 15 Acting School in 2010. Her recent theatre work includes outdoor tours of Romeo and Juliet and a festival show called Scenes from a Suitcase with Taking Flight who create fully accessible shows weaving together BSL, audio description, music and text to tell their stories. Georgina has also recently worked on several short films, the audio drama Red Moon for Wireless Theatre Company and plays the lead character in ‘Becoming Danish’, a comedy webseries due for release this autumn.
