A 'TED TALK CABARET' ABOUT SEEING AND BEING SEEN

TWO NIGHTS ONLY

We live in a hyper connected age but seem to be lonelier than ever. Do you SEE? And let yourself be seen?

I’m Jess: I sing, write and coach relationships. Though not usually at the same time. I’ve seen how many of us aren’t as connected to ourselves and others as we might like - after all we didn’t learn how to do relationships at school. So I’ve become an emotional intimacy activist, on a mission to help us improve the quality of our relationships and therefore, the quality of our lives. Relationships are all we have - will you join my protest? 

‘Do You See?’ is a live intimacy experiment: a work in progress evening of original songs, touching personal stories and practical relationship ideas to take away. Join me for this eye-opening ‘TEDtalk cabaret’ about seeing and being seen.

Writer and performer: Jessica Sedler
Director: Imogen Bond
Co-music writer, musical director and Pianist: Ross Lorraine.


Jessica Sedler

Jess trained as an actress at LAMDA and worked in theatre including at the Old Vic (24 hour plays), Lyric Theatre West End, and touring Shakespeare around Europe. She co-founded cabaret ensemble The Ruby Dolls in 2010 (‘Elegant, inventive and absorbing’ - Time Out). They have written, performed and produced five full length cabaret theatre shows in four part harmony to sold out audiences across London, as well as critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 and 2014. They secured Arts Council funding for a national tour in 2016.

Jess also works as a Leadership and Communication Skills coach. She has trained in integrative psychotherapy, NLP, non-violent communication and recently, as an fully accredited systemic coach. She works with business teams and family systems to build emotionally intelligent relationships.

This is her first ’Tedtalk Cabaret’.
