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, Pop Heart Productions tells us about their show, Am I F#*kable?, which they’ll be performing at The Warren.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A darkly funny show that satirises the commodification of people through technology and the media.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
We’re a local company based in Brighton who feel the fringe provides the perfect platform for the themes we cover and find the atmosphere and energy inspiring.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
We’ve produced a promo video for the show, been rehearsing heavily and promoting the show any avenue we can.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
The theme of our show has never been more relevant than it is now and you will navigate the spectrum of emotion and from sadness to joy to inspired.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
Model Organisms at The Dukebox. A one-woman show chronicling struggles in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian future.
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Boredom or Terror. Producing a show can be challenging at times and terrifying at others but what is life without art?
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Phish Food. It’s sweet, rich, has a funny name and is full of surprises that will delight and satisfy.
