Amy Grimehouse is a cinema/arts club night that celebrates trashy, camp, cult and transgressive film, art and books, they marry the feature up with experiential activities, and audience participation. I worked with them on a number of film night events. I developed creative workshops based on the films being shown. I had scripts and costumes of iconic parts of the films and audience members acted them out during the evening. I also worked on a similar project with the Amy Grimehouse at the V&A Lates, were I created a set of The TV show "Murder she wrote" and together with the audience we made an episode of Murder She Wrote through out the evening.
