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, The Chandeliers tells us about their show, CSI: Crime Scene Improvisation, which they’ll be performing at The Warren.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
An improvised comedy murder mystery where no-one knows who the killer is, not even the cast!
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
This will be our third year at the Fringe and we’ve had an incredible time in previous years. We love Brighton’s enthusiasm and playfulness – the perfect audience!
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
As well as regular workshops making sure our improv muscles are in good order, we’ve been planning some exciting new production elements to appear for the first time at Brighton.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
The audience. We create the show based on their suggestions in a fun, safe environment, no-one gets picked on!! It’s for them, they are the only people that will ever see that very show.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
The Maydays present: Happily Never After
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Work hard, play hard.
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Everything mixed together, every mouthful tastes different, just like every one of our shows is entirely unique.
