Tessa Waters

After her successful 2015 show WOMANz Tessa Waters returns with not one, but two shows. The comedian and performance artist studied clowning in France, which makes her work physical and ridiculously silly. In Tessa Waters Over Promises she has ditched the character, combining dance, sketch and slapstick. Her children’s show How To Be A Rockstar is physical comedy about body positivity.

What: Tessa Waters Over Promises
When: Every night until March 13
Where: Garden of Unearthly Delights - Cupola
