PULSE POINTS: Notnow Collective – DadMan: The Bath-Time Warrior

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, Kristina Gavran of Notnow Collective tells us about DadMan: The Bath-Time Warrior which is performed at Pulse on 2 June 2017

How would you describe your show in one sentence? 
Two dads on stage, two mums behind the scene.

What appealed about appearing at Pulse? 
Lets show our work outside of our comfort zone.

How have you been preparing for Pulse? 
Talking to dads, collaborating with dads, rehearsing with dads, fighting with dads, laughing with dads. Too many dads involved!

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings? 
Our children influenced the development of our show for adults a lot. We were rehearsing with our children present in the rehearsal room.

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Pulse (apart from your own)? 
Tell Me Anything!

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival? 
Flyers won’t do it.

The average human pulse rate is 70bpm, what is the pulse rate of your show and why? 
Our show is full of interruptions, it can work for your pulse as a chamomile tea and energy drink at the same time.
