A new Event from our Friends Les Enfants Terribles!!!

The Prism L.F.I.D.C.B.I_1 (1)

“What to experience immersive theatre online? @LesEnfantsTerr theatre company have created The PRISM. Choose a completely unique journey, venturing deeper and deeper into a surreal, dream-like world. Sign up for free before this Friday www.enter-the-prism.com

We would love you to experience what we have created as well so please do sign up on the website on this link.

The Prism has been created to harness the unique power of lucid dreaming; being aware that you are dreaming and therefore being able control outcome, make choices – potentially turning your bad dreams into fantasies… or making them worse.

The Prism’s state of the art technology uses hyper-screen realisation to connect participants directly into their own personalised dream state, where then they will be able to interact with their screen in order to explore and take different paths through their own dreams, thus unlocking a greater understanding of their own mind.

After all, what is real; the physical ‘you’ reading these words within your super smart device? Or could there be another world that brings us closer to reality… a world that lets us get up close with our deepest desires and fears, letting us control their outcomes?

The Audiences Reviews

We have had quiet small audiences at times, but it looks like some people really enjoyed spending time with us. Sorry to boast but we are so proud:

If a show at the fringe moved me this much to laughter then tears then I can’t remember when. Add to that elaborate creative props and scenery and great audience interaction and this is a real beezer. Come back and do Ernest Nobile next to me! Jamie Shepherd

Wonderful. Just what I love about the Fringe is when you are taken to unexpected places by the ingenuity and skill of the performers and writers. Expecting a romp but given a sensitively delivered tragi-comedy with a very moving ending. Littered with glorious silliness the Dead Rabbits are a must see show this year. ANTON GRASHION

An entertaining and moving show by a talented and enthusiastic cast! They took us with them to the Arctic, and the various depictions of the balloon were wonderfully done. Lesley Warner

A great show that is both funny and moving. Part celebration of the heroic age of polar exploration; part sentimental tragi-comedy with a dash of social relevance thrown in. Highly recommended. Keith Baxter

This turned out to be a real gem! Very creative staging, an interesting story, strong performances, and lots of humor. Highly recommend. JM

This show about a balloon expedition to the Arctic was in turns very funny and quietly heartbreaking. I was pleased that we’d found a show at the Fringe to satisfy my craving for polar exploration stories (after a dedicated search for every possible Arctic-related keyword); I can’t say how happy I am that it turned out to be so good. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good adventure story, with engaging performers and the sort of small, intimist setting that lets you be drawn into a play and won’t let you easily pull yourself back out. Aude C

I loved this show. It’s a good, true story to start with, but the clever writing, ingenious staging and excellent performances made it something more. It’s funny, sad, touching and original. My pick of the Fringe so far. John Fuller

What a lovely, and moving, show, beautiful to look at and impressively acted. Everything a one-act play should be. Highly recommended. Pippa Hyde

Best physical theatre show I’ve seen at fringe so far this year. 4 very good performers break the fourth wall (in the best way) to tell this true story with the most creative use of set I’ve ever seen at edfringe. First time fringe performers take Pleasance Dome by storm, go and see this really good show when you can; thoroughly recommend. Mark Reynolds

What a wildly inventive and beautifully realised show this is. One of the most talented, creative engaging young companies I’ve come across in a long time telling a sad, beautiful story with impeccable physical theatricality and a dash of comic genius. My pick of the Fringe. Buy your tickets in advance – this show should (and will) sell out. Philippa

Very humbled by the kind words. Thank you.

Please spread the word. We have five more shows and we have had such an amazing time. Help us to get more people to see the show. Everyday at 12:30 at Kingdome Pleasance, however afternoons spent mostly at the Pleasance Courtyard…. playing the old grumpy accordion and ukulele, flyering and drinking some fine (and not so fine) liquors…. Please join us or at least say hello if you see us!

Missed us??? You still have the chance… 6 more performances at 12:30 at Kingdome Pleasance. We know it is early…could be difficult to get out of bed… we know it is lunch time…but other than that you have no excuse….

Guess who is missing….

We are so overwhelmed with the public response. Thank you everybody who came to see us, it has been a pleasure. And thank you for your amazing reviews!!! Spread the word! Boom!!!! https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/my-love-lies-frozen-in-the-ice

The last thing that freezes is the heart….Edinburgh half way through report….

Our hearts are still beating, but the flyering and getting people to come to see our show is tough…. Above … an example of how we feel at the end of a long day…. me (taking the picture) grumpy, Sammy- sleepy, James – witty, Jordan – happy, Jodie – angelic…as always.

We are so happy to be here – Two four STARS reviews in the pocket and lots of amazing public reviews and encouragement. We miss Edmonton too!!! Edmonton Fringe is about to start so we wish you to have a great one, our friends from so far away….

Here are the reviews

Going, going….Gone…to Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

BOOM!!!

We waited and waited for our lucky break and it came, quite unexpectedly this March, when we won LET partnership award and a place in the Pleasance Kingdome Venue for this year’s Edinburgh Festival. We are very nervous, quite excited, hungry and ready for it all…

So without further Ado… We are playing My Love Lies Frozen in the Ice in Pleasance Kingdome at 12:30 everyday from 31st of July all the way through (except 13th and 19th). Please come and support us, not only if you live in Edinburgh, not only if you live in Scotland…please come from all over the world, do not hesitate, hopefully will be worth your effort… if not see us after the show and we can straighten the matter over a beer or two. We went all the way to Canada (twice over) so we believe the world can come to us now. See you up North, we will be in the usual gear, playing the loud accordion and some flimsy Ukeleles….

See us on the 21st September in London!!!

Canada was an amazing experience for us. After winning ‘Best Emerging Artist’ Award we rolled to Edmonton and were even more astounded by selling out and receiving two further awards: STAFF AND VOLUNTEER PICKS

and then there were the HOLDOVERS. We couldn’t imagine being in a better theatre.

350-seater, with amazing staff, crew and facilities and also both shows sold-out!!!

We would like to thank Murray, Celia, Ray, Selena, Perry, Nick, Marc for your photos (the one on this blog too from Marc J Chalifoux Photography ) and all  organisers, staff, volunteers, our hosts that put up with us for so long (especially Hitomi and Jeanette xx) all the artists that we made friends with and amazing audiences which we had so much fun with. We are so grateful!!!  Thank you for an amazing ride!!!

However….

We have one and only show in London (UK) on the 21st September at 7:30pm at St Mary’s University Theatre. Please come and check us out!

Boom!!!

 

Alter – Ego

The boys got enough exposure on the poster, and I thought it is time to show you the other side of the Dead Rabbits…

We normally sit on the bus stop all the time… waiting for the… bus (boys have bikes…for some strange reason) but we are much more glamorous and world-wise…

Leah (the red-headed beauty) makes sure the show happen. And this is not just that the lights are working and the performers are visible but she also makes sure that the cast wakes up, turns up on time and remembers to bring their costumes….

Milly (a Devon princess, who is the most excited about life on this photo – which is also generally true in life) is the most important person in the show – she is the one who is left behind…. Milly basically holds the show together…

Moi (in the middle) I have the most amazing job – Every morning, I use my thin bamboo stick on their bare feet – ( why? – I hear you ask) well, it is an old Polish practice (also known by most ‘charming and delightful’ Master –  Philippe Gaulier) I hit them with a stick unexpectedly yet fiercely – so they remember during the show – to have lightness, charm and some ‘God- damn’ pleasure on stage….

And you see it worked!!! Holdovers and two awards..( psst, I will tell you about this later)

Boom!!!
