Tom Halls & Simone French, are an outrageous & experimental performance duo, TomYumSim. They challenge conventional notions of performance & rebel against the mainstream, connecting on a desire to interrogate interactive & immersive performance. Creating queer, absurd, frenetic theatre, TomYumSim put the audience’s experience at the centre of their work. Known for transforming unusual & diverse spaces into bespoke environments, their work interweaves AV, soundscapes, movement and vocals in their live and participatory experiences. During 2020 they have been producing work in online & digital spaces using phones, Zoom & Youtube. 

Tighten your buttocks, pour juice on your chin, I promise my piggy, we’re TomYumSim.
