Conference Of Strange (Patternfight Performance / PBH Free Fringe)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

In a world so overpopulated, why reproduce at all? Why not become a cyborg, like the star of ‘Conference Of Strange’, Sarah Ruff? This is a defamiliarising discussion of the life cycle, using visual projections that are interactive, original, and truly hilarious. The entire space at Princes Street Mall is utilised in the making of this show. With projections dotted around the room, the senses are treated to both physical art and comedy in a marvellous synthesis. The result is a clever, topical and inordinately witty display that will make you pause and think, not to mention chortle. This show is inventive, warm, and poignant, an impressive feat for any cyborg.

Princes Mall, 13 – 27 Aug (not 16, 23), 6.00pm (7.00pm), free, fpp251.
