Back once again by popular demand for 2018, our Brighton Bites Q&As offer an, occasionally witty – often hilarious, insight into the acts donning their flip-flops and shades (or high-heels and lippy) to join the line-up of England’s largest arts festival, Brighton Fringe. With 2017 boasting almost 1000 events across 160+ venues and 2018 promising more than 300+ free events to widen access to performances, our Bites aim to give you a taste of what’s in store.
Next up, Other Spaces tells us about their show Wolf Safari which they’ll be performing at Phoenix.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Experience Brighton through the eyes of a wolf – roam the lanes of Brighton searching for your mates, revel in the thrill of the hunt and howl at the moon at midnight before you return to human form.
Why Brighton Fringe?
Because Brighton Fringe is the place to be!
How did the show get to where it is today?
Through meticulous artistic development of collective metamorphosis and corporeal, experiential exercises as performance practices.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It offers a possibility for collective experience, not to a mention unique way of immersing oneself in Brighton!
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own!)?
Selecting our favourite show will be our hardest task! There are so many interesting things to see.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given, or would give, for performing at a fringe festival?
This is our first time at the Fringe, we’ll have to choose the most valuable piece of advice afterwards…
If your show was a piece of Brighton Rock, what word would run through it?
Become a wolf!
Wolf Safari runs at Brighton Fringe on 4, 6, 8 & 10 May.
