Actor, Singer, Icon, Wanker! Lee Mark-Jones is The Theatre of the Wild, Beautiful and Damned. A carnival of delights, it leads you somewhere you don’t want to go.
There was no mad, wild, anarchic, on the edge, dangerous Performance/art Theatre Company out there? So i decided to start my own! Inspired by Theatre of Cruelty and the Panic Movement we aim to take drama to another level. Offering the viewer an immersive experience into the unknown.
The Theatre of the Wild, Beautiful and Damned offers Contemporary theatre/performance - chaotic and surreal, as a response to surrealism becoming mainstream. This theatrical event is designed to be shocking and to release destructive energies in search of peace and beauty, or just destroy it all and leave you in the midst of chaos.
It is a carnival of delights leading somewhere you don’t want to go. Somewhere dark and cold, filled with the damp ambiguous shapes of things you’d hoped were forgotten. The company is the creation of Lee Mark Jones, a contemporary performance artist with a passion for the chaotic and surreal.
“I intend to attract a new kind of audience which does not usually go to the theatre; an audience craving strange journeys of darkness, horror, suspense, and wonder. All these thrills we will provoke into life, in the flesh, breathing and bleeding on stage, and right in your face.” Lee Mark Jones
“You've got the makings of an amazing piece of theatre there.”
Ed Collier (China Plate) on 'A Rock 'n' Roll Suicide!'
“One of those performances where you are a different person afterwards than you were before. Nobody has seen anything like it” Garry Cook -Lancashire Fringe Festival
“ I love Lee as an actor, he’s Dangerous and doesnt give a fuck!” -Chris Thorpe
"Looks like some wild and wicked work”- Andy Field, Forest Fringe co-director
"Bold artistic instincts and vision”- Pippa Frith, Fierce Festival Producer.
Bringing the world of horror to the stage. We intend to attract a new kind of audience which does not usually go to the theatre, an audience craving strange journeys of the dark, dread, horror, suspense, terror and wonder.
That Good? Yes?
"I love Lee, he’s dangerous and doesn't give a f**k and I love that”
“among the most blisteringly bold theatre I’ve seen at this year’s Fringe. Regardless of whether you love it or hate it, one thing is certain: you will never forget it.”
Miles Jackson EDFringe review 2018
