PULSE POINTS: Hervé Goffings – Hervé

Ipswich’s Pulse Festival returns to the New Wolsey Theatre 1-10 June 2017, packed with over 50 events to thrill and entertain. To help you decide what to see, we’re running our Pulse Points Previews, asking performers to tell us about their productions.

Here, Hervé Goffings tells us about Hervé which is performed at Pulse on 6 June 2017

How would you describe your show in one sentence? 
Hervé is a highly entertaining piece about a deadly serious matter – diversity.

What appealed about appearing at Pulse? 
I heard great things about the festival and there is a wide variety of performances. Also, I am impressed about the amount of care taken in regard to disability issues.

How have you been preparing for Pulse? 

The show is already fully prepared having been performed in several other venues.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings? 
It is about a specific story about a black child adopted by a white family.

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Pulse (apart from your own)? 
I would love to see Golem. I heard great things about its originality.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival? 
Always make sure that the venue, the location and the size of the venue suit the material.

The average human pulse rate is 70bpm, what is the pulse rate of your show and why? 
The average pulse rate of the show is 70bpm but there are several emotional and comic peaks which will affect your heart beat depending on your health!
