What am I Worth? is the groundbreaking new show that shines a light on seven extraordinary cast members from across the world, including the US, Germany, Ireland and the UK. They tell the story of what happens to us when there’s not enough to go around. Who costs more than we can afford? Who’s worth keeping and who loses out? And what part does our identity play in the decision?
David Ellington, John Kelly, Alfa Marks, Amelia Cavallo, Dergin Tokmak, Aislinn Mulligan, Jonny Leitch make up the new Extraordinary Bodies cast.

Following a residency with The National Theatre’s New Work Department and time devising at 101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space, Extraordinary Bodies are off to The Point Eastleigh for 2 weeks of rehearsals this May to finalise the show on their transformative new aerial set.
The bespoke set created especially for What Am I Worth? by Will Datson, is a new piece of non-traditional circus equipment that enables all types of bodies to hang, balance, climb and swing from it. It’s an intriguing set that holds lots of excitement, possibility and risk. It transforms from one scene to the other, moving at different tempos and teetering on and off balance.
The set demands that artists work together co-operatively, otherwise they risk being thrown off. Our artists have created new techniques, adapted their skills, and taken risks in order to work with it in a way that shows off their abilities.
Tour dates to be announced very soon!
