What’s the name of your show?
Um, can you not read? It’s right there in the title… THE FREAK & THE SHOWGIRL – GREATEST T.I.T.S. (Totally Inclusive Theatrical Spectacular). Maybe it should be called flippers, strippers, political quippers, sexy freaky pagan fun, pussy tits cock and bum, songs from hearts in mouths, thongs in parts more south, and all served up with a party-off ending, that gagging for shagging our audience we are sending.
Who are we talking to?
The hip, the crips, the big ships in the night, the lurch to the right, and why it’s not quite what we want in near sight. You’re talking to the voice of reason, treason and universal loving vibrations through a prism of social outrage and comedic vitriol, and if that’s something you think you’d like to – well not have a conversation with, rather watch the lunatic ramblings made into a show from two unguarded outsider artists with a vengeance for love, then you should come along to see this last chance at such limitless debauchery.
What’s your show about?
Poking fun at the absurdity of normality, by celebrating glorious reality humanity with profanity and clarity, often some vulgarity and maybe some disparity. Showing a mirror to silly old society and all its obsessions with perfection and confirming to a ridiculous ideal of what they should look like. Freak show, strip show, dance offs, clothes off, culture, booze, love, rock n’ roll.
Who’s gonna like it?
Everyone, grannies love it as they’ve seen and done everything, middle aged people like it cos they’re beginning not to give a fuck anymore and younger like it too, as its so full on. But whole families when they all come together tend to get a bit embarrassed, so I think its best if they split up their visits, perhaps generationally, unless they’re super liberal, which indeed we hope they are.
When and where is it on?
The West Australian Spiegeltent, February 17 – 22.
What else are you looking forward to at this year’s Fringe?
Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey’s new show; Mingeworld is going to be awesome. I really want to see Asher Treleaven and Gypsy Wood’s new show and UK’s Will Pickvance. I also want to check out any Australian and indigenous shows in between visits to Cottesloe Beach of course.
Anything to add?
We have been unlucky to miss Fringe World for the last two years after building up a good following and we just hope you guys will tell your mates to come and see us do the crazy loved up shit that is this show. It’s going to be the last time we do this kind of crazy-sexy-freaky-out there- totally outrageous-cabaret-striptease sideshow stuff, so we want it to go with a BANG!! Hope to see you there. xx
