Do you want to feel calmer, more focused and relaxed? Imagine a life where daily stress just floats by like a cloud in the sky, not a rain cloud, a nice one, a fluffy one. Yeah, do you want that? You know you do, don’t you? Join me at my mindfulness workshop where we can leave our baggage behind and be in the moment, even if that moment is not quite what you thought it would be, cos hey, what is?! Sometimes that moment is f*cking terrible. I’m joking. See, mindfulness can be fun. Fun and calm.

August 9, 2019  The Wee Review
Mindfulness instructor breaks down under the pressures of a coercive relationship in Katie Jane McLeod’s comedy theatre piece.

The mindfulness workshop taking place in Cabaret Voltaire’s sweaty cinema room each afternoon is, conversely, not very relaxing. Our workshop leader (Katie Jane McLeod) is mid-crisis, visibly breaking down before our eyes. Although she’s preaching mindfulness mantras at us, she’s in torment herself. A controlling boyfriend has her doing all the housework, managing the finances, buying him expensive gifts, lending him money, neglecting her family and friends, all in support of his DJing ‘career’, and she’s fielding calls to sort all this, for fear of him, while trying to do her day job in HR. As we learn, it’s based on painful personal experience.

It’s a strong concept and McLeod acts the part well – manic in places, obviously stressed and furiously fighting to hold it all together. There’s a touch of Jessica Hynes’ Siobhan about her (from Twenty Twelve / W1A) and the odd Brentian moment too. Click Here
