Becks Turner is a creative producer, marketeer, visual artist and performance artist.
She creates playful and energetic environments for audiences where they are given the freedom to misbehave. She makes this environment by experimenting with game structures in live events to transform, educate and entertain her audience who are young adults that enjoy a vibrant theatrical, cabaret and club scene. The clown like persona she creates for performances indulges and invites audiences to rebel, break rules and exorcise their fears of failure.
Her debut solo show, Melonade was a sell out at Camden People’s Theatre as part of Sprint Festival 2019. Melonade is an interactive game show exploring neurodiversity and questioning issues within the education system. Melonade at Vault Festival 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19, but Becks is looking forward to bringing Melonade to Vault Festival 2021.
After working with Dramaturg Adam Gregory on Melonade, they have now created a theatre company G&T Theatre. Their second show, Avocado on Tits was first developed for Pleasance Theatre's Fringe Futures Festival in June 2021 and was part of Camden People's Theatre Sprint Festival 2021. The show follows social media influencer and trendsetter Slag of the Dump as she uncovers the secrets hidden under the glitz and glam of the fashion industry.
During the lockdown, Becks taught herself how to create digital illustrations using Pro Create and is now taking on freelance illustration jobs. If you would like a commission, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
After graduating from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a First class honours in BA Performance Arts, Becks has been working at the Barbican Centre. Becks is Marketing Assistant for Learning and Audience Development at the Barbican Centre, helping market the Barbican's Creative Learning projects, co-ordinate Young Barbican and produce Young Barbican Nights.
