Tomás Ford – Electric Midnight Cabaret (Tomasford.com And JumpClimb)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

Probably one of the most terrifying acts you’ll see at the Fringe this year, this unique horror show is not for the faint hearted. Tomás Ford’s split personality is simultaneously threatening and apologetic. He assaults the audience by invading their personal space and they ended up laughing, I suspect, more out of fear than anything else. It’s not necessarily a cabaret show as you might expect it, and though Ford does attempt this method of showmanship, soon enough he reverts to his usual industrial electro madness. It makes me wonder a bit, what sort of person creates a show as deranged as this? But then again, what kind of person am I to be enjoying it?

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 12.00am.
