Calgary Fringe Festival – Inglewood

On the 1st of August 2017, we flew high…, high above Iceland, high above Greenland, high above a lot of water….        ‘Were you flying in an enormous balloon trying to do what nobody else ever done before? ??- I hear you ask…. NO – is my simple answer – ‘this is not what Dead Rabbits do’ – We flew in a standard, well-built aeroplane in an economy class…They did give us a free bottle of wine to cheer us up.

One could compare the inspired excitement of our flight to that of the flight of ‘the Eagle’ – ‘the Eagle’ was a swoosh hydrogen balloon made entirely from 5km of silk and flown exactly 120 years ago by Salomon Andree and his comrades in the attempt to conquer The North Pole…

We did manage, however, to arrive safely on Canadian turf… in Inglewood… This is the area of Calgary Fringe Festival and at the moment there is still not too many people here as the festival begins on the 4th of August. So we are rehearsing, sourcing small props, doing technical rehearsals and looking around Calgary. We have found lots of Rabbits (very alive and rather fast) we made some friendships and we are waiting for Hitomi to take us on a trip of a lifetime to Banff…

Meanwhile, just a bit nervy before the premiere and waiting for the audiences not to fail us….

Please come and see our shows during Calgary Festival – 1st one on the 4th of August 7pm ( Alexandra centre society) and then late in the evening at 11:30 Late Night Cabaret… Please do come and chat to us when you see us…

Boom…

Calgary and Edmonton Festivals Canada 2017

In 2016 we went to Edmonton Fringe Festival full of hopes and also full of worries.  Over 200 theatre companies, over 45 venues, hundreds of thousands of punters…. We were only a little fish trying to swim… but these 2 weeks were amazing, full of sunshine, great people, openness. great hosts that were putting up with us through all that time, fantastic volunteers, and fringe staff and management were really kind and helped us straight away when we ran into any problems. And yes it was a great surprise when our theatre started to fill up, that we got amazing reviews and people wrote to us or came up to us on the streets. On one occasion, on a roller-coaster in Edmonton  – somebody hollered at Sam-‘look that’s The Dragon’ Sam didn’t take offence, just the opposite, he was beaming with joy the whole week….

So we decided to come back. We have a new show: My Love Lies Frozen in the Ice….

We are going to Calgary Festival first and then to Edmonton…We worked this year even harder but the show is not made till it has its run with the audience….So greetings Canada – we await you and your judgement…

Please come and see us and thank you so much for all your support

Boom – see you soon xx

 

 

 

We are making our new show: My Love Lies Frozen in the Ice…

Hello All….

We started 2 weeks ago with some good and some… bad ideas. That happens… So we are trying to get rid of the bad ones and leave only the excellent in…

There will be a lot about ice and balloons and snow and hopefully, it will make some sense. At the moment hard to tell…

We let you decide on your own… please come and see us for the premiere:

27th April, Studio 3, 7:30pm, St Mary’s University, London, Tickets £5 on the door.

See you there if you can xx beep bab boop
