Becks Turner is a creative producer 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. The next performance of Melonade will be at Vault Festival 2020, March 18 & 19.
She is co-founder of SHIFT UPDATE, a production company who produce club nights, using games to tell an immersive narrative. Their first club night, Shape Shifter, was a huge success at The Yard (2019).
Becks has recently graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a First class honours in BA Performance Arts. Becks now works as Marketing Assistant for Learning and Audience Development at the Barbican Centre, helping market the Barbican's Creative Learning projects and co-ordinate Young Barbican.
