The self-help industry is valued at more than £6bn a year. We all want to be healthier, wealthier, more successful – and we’re willing to pay for it.
We live in an age of life coaches, The Secret and ‘positive thinking’. But in a society that tells us 'belief' is all we need to succeed, can embracing failure be a form of resistance?
Skeletons (Or, How I Learned to Love Fucking Up) examines society’s ‘cult of success’ in an absurd and confrontational live performance.

Expect impossible tasks, cringeworthy confessions and surreal self-help mantras in a life-coach session gone wrong.
