After an amazing response last year we have once again resurrected our Brighton Bites mini-interviews. These short and snappy Q&As offer an, occasionally witty – often hilarious, insight into the acts strutting, sailing, surfing (insert preferred form of transport here) in to join the line-up of England’s largest arts festival, Brighton Fringe. 2018 was a record-breaking year for the Fringe with over 575,000 people attending the festival; and with 2019 promising to be more inclusive than ever, our Bites aim to give you a taste of what’s in store across the 4,500+ events and performances that are on offer.
Next up, Allix James shares a few words about Valhalla which is coming to The Warren: The Bunker.
Describe your show in one sentence?
A sci-fi comedy about what it means to be human.
Why Brighton Fringe?
A festival that promotes and supports all forms of artistic expression.
How did the show get to where it is today?
A successful run at the White Bear Theatre, London.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
A combination of ludicrous sci-fi comedy with a philosophical element.
What show do you not want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own!)?
The Geminus by Blue Devil Productions
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given, or would give, for performing at a fringe festival?
Just go for it!
With the theme of this year’s festival being ‘DARE to Discover’, we’d like you to tell us a TRUTH – something about you or the show that fans may not know.
Carla Fraser, who plays Natalie, has recently been starring in a film, that she wrote, alongside Miriam Margolyes.
