Catherine Semark – Shadow Ape (PHB’S Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Catherine Semark’s show shines a comical light on a variety of social situations that we can all embarrassingly relate to. She talks about the lengths we all take to avoid various awkward situations, our natural tendency to pretend that we’re better at life than we actually are and – of course – our international obsession with drawing the cock and balls symbol. Semark’s energetic and truthful humour, her accompanying drawings and her unusual passion for cooking mouldering vegetables make for a number of laugh out loud moments throughout. Not only that – her addictive catfox-dogpig game will undoubtedly become your new favourite past-time. ‘Shadow Ape’ is certainly a fun and engaging show that we can all relate to in some way.

The Voodoo Rooms, until 25 Aug 1.30pm.
