VAULT VIGNETTE: Alice Keedwell and Harry Blake

How would you describe your show in one sentence?

Two friends trying to find happiness through show tunes, dancing and woodwind duels.

Is this your first visit to the VAULT Festival, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?

This is our third year performing at VAULT and we’re so excited to be coming back, there’s nothing else like it. We created We Can Make You Happy for the festival in 2015 so it feels like coming back to our slightly damp home.

How has the show developed on the way to the tunnels?

Harry: We’ve added songs, cutdance numbers,written newjokes,hired acardboard cow cutout, fired the cardboard cow cutout – it’s a brutalbusiness.

Alice: We’ve been really lucky to be able to take the show to Brighton and Edinburgh since we first performed it so we’ve made quite a few changes along the way and we’re still tweaking things, we can’t stop!

How have you been preparing for VAULT Festival?

A: I’ve been practicing the ukulele and having a few singing lessons, my top belt note has now gone up by a semitone, it’s a big breakthrough.

H: Iwenton a run andunsuccessfully attempted to give up cow’s milk.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?

A: Gosh I don’t know, everyone is brilliant…..although we do have flamingos and a unicorn called Ariel.

H: And a confettidrop.

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s VAULT Festival (apart from your own!)?

A: I have become a big Trygve Wakenshaw fan, I’ve already seen him. Twice. That’s cool right?

H: Don’t Waste Your Bullets on the Dead looks pretty good in Week three.

If your show was a creature lurking in the depths of a dark tunnel what would it be?

A: A Rainbow coloured unicorn with attitude.

H: Alain de Botton.
