On today’s podcast, my travel producer, Woodsie and I continue our Edinburgh Festival Fringe experience with Sarah Knittel and the gas lighting fever dream that is Nightmare Fuel. We talk about the origins of this piece and its layers and the overall festival experience. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT NIGHTMARE FUEL
A brutal clown show that asks the tough questions like ”Where were you last night?” and ”How come you‘re being such a cunt?” NIGHTMARE FUEL will slide into your DMs and leave you quivering and anxious. NIGHTMARE FUEL will look right into your eyes and tell you you‘re fucking crazy!
On today’s podcast, we meet Almanac, an interdisciplinary theatre group whose production of “Leaps of Faith and Other Mistakes” runs through Fringe Arts at the Painted Bride Arts Center. I have been aware of Almanac for a while now, often in the building they are performing in for another production. Now, we get a chance to find out more about their work, process, practices and inspirations. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT LEAPS OF FAITH AND OTHER MISTAKES
From the company behind Exile 2588 comes a re-envisioning of Almanac’s acclaimed tale of sublime human idiocy, isolationist seafarer cults, & the absurdity of believing too hard. Breathtaking acrobatics & earnest theatricality combine with brand new live music. What do people do when they find themselves lost at sea?
