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.
Here, Teatteri Takomo tells us about his show Dark Side of the Mime which he’ll be performing at The Old Market.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Shameless, audacious and extremely funny!
Why Brighton Fringe?
Because it’s the best Fringe in UK!
How did the show get to where it is today?
With lot of work and load of dark humour.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
We are the most grotesque clown show at the Fringe for sure!
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own!)?
The Fabulous Bäckstöm Brothers at The Old Market Theatre.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given, or would give, for performing at a fringe festival?
If your show was a piece of Brighton Rock, what word would run through it?
Dark Side of the Mime runs at Brighton Fringe on 28 & 29 May 2018.
