Back by popular demand for 2017, our Brighton Bites series offer short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into shows performing at England’s largest arts festival. Hopefully, they will whet your appetite to try something new at this year’s Brighton Fringe.
Here, Different Theatre tell us about their show, Underworlds, which they’ll be performing at Sweet Dukebox.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A dark tapestry of female voices from the afterlife, in which characters such as Arachne, Eurydice, Cathy Earnshaw (Wuthering Heights), Cleopatra and a black widow get a chance to set the record straight.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
We are a local company so this is a natural and exciting place to debut our new work.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
I’ve been revising the show since its debut at Hove Grown last year, practising my spinning skills, and making a puppet.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It features six dead women and a spider
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
See as much of other people’s theatre as you can
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
