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, Paula Valluerca tells us about her show, Madame Señorita: `The Expector´, which she’ll be performing at The Warren – Studio 2.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A twisted exploration of Womanhood and the idiocy around it.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
I have performed in Brighton Fringe before, with two different shows; first with my theatre company Intuitive Creatures and then with my previous show Madame Señorita: Who are tú?” Both times I had a great experience and the audience and venue organisers treated me so well I had to come back!
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
Performing at cabaret nights in London and Madrid, and putting on a couple of previews before the Big Days!
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It’s got a clear latin influence and it makes fun of womanhood in a loving way.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
Dan and Neil’s The STABLISHMENT! “Eton Mess”
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
When you are performing, perform for those members of the audience that are loving you, don´t bother about anybody else!
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
