With our previews at the Brighton Fringe fast approaching, we have focused the last few rehearsals on generating the remaining material and developing, refining and distilling what has already been created. We have been looking specifically at Red Super Giants - enormous, cool stars with high luminosity that form after a star has used up the fuel at its core; the beginning of the end of the relationship.
We also had a fantastic meeting with Boris, the astrophysicist advising us on And Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out. Mind. Blown. (As usual.) Over a beer he explained causality and the concept of a closed universe. My note-book is full of furious scribblings and emphatic capitals.
Set and key tech pieces have started to arrive, much to the delight of Eoin. We now have a massive train-set set up in our rehearsal room, a wireless cctv camera and a giant mirror ball. More to arrive imminently.
Music has become (even more of) an essential element of our rehearsals; impacting not only the sonic environment, but also the visual aesthetic of the piece. The Pixies, Sonic Youth, Shellac and Nirvana have been popular additions to the rehearsal room play-list. We like our theatre noisy.
We were delighted to discover that Fringe Review have chosen us as the Special Recommendation at The Warren. Below is our poster.
