With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHubwe want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Abbi Greenland &Helen Goalen of Two Man Showanswering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
Two Man Show is about gender in a patriarchal society- John and Dan are struggling to know how to be MEN and Abbi and Helen struggle to know how to be WOMEN.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
RashDash began at the Edinburgh Fringe and we brought our first four shows there. Without it, we wouldn’t have built the relationships and audiences that have helped us to make this our full-time job. We love the Fringe and we’ve been waiting to have the right show to come back home with. Two Man Show is The One.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Eat well, see as many of other people’s show as you possibly can, tell people when you think their show/performance is great, don’t believe everything the reviews say – good and bad.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
One of the most exciting things about our work is our strong and athletic physicality that is expressive, robust and exhausting, but with this show, it’s about being vulnerable, open and generous. I think the combination is something special, and we’d like to share it with you.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Emerging physical theatre company Temper Theatre were incredible last year, and they’re returning to Zoo Southside with Terra Incognita this year. Can’t wait to see it.
