welcome to brighton fringe 2017! On behalf of all at Brighton Fringe, I’m delighted to welcome you to discover England’s largest arts festival, which this year features nearly 1,000 events of all genres. It is the product of the talent, passion and dedication of many thousands of people locally, nationally and from all over the world. Within these pages you will find an unparalleled selection of theatre, comedy, music, dance, cabaret, circus, spoken word, visual arts and much more besides. There is, truly, something for everyone. At its core, Brighton Fringe is an open-access platform to nurture and support people of all backgrounds and experience to create and put on work. As an organisation, we are here year-round to promote and encourage excellence at every level, with more than £10,000 in bursaries, over 50 free Fringe Academy workshops, the annual Brighton Fringe Awards and extensive international development. This year in particular we are delighted to welcome a brilliant season of Dutch work with the kind support of the Embassy of the Netherlands and the Dutch Performing Arts Fund, in partnership with Amsterdam Fringe. I would like to thank everyone who makes Brighton Fringe what it is: the artists, technicians, admin teams, volunteeers, sponsors, partners, funders and Friends scheme members. And I’d like to thank you, the audience, and hope that you enjoy the wonders that are in store for you here. Brighton Fringe is your festival and I am very proud to commend it to you. Happy Fringing!

As an avid supporter of Brighton Fringe, it is a great honour for me to be asked to write in the Introduction to the 2017 brochure. From humble beginnings Brighton Fringe has seen a meteroic rise over the past five years, more than doubling the number of shows in venues across the city. I am extremely proud that England’s largest arts festival should have its home here in Brighton & Hove. I’m sure you, like me, are looking forward to browsing through and selecting the shows and events you are going to see this year - not an easy task as there is so much to choose from, so I won’t keep you any longer. Best wishes,

Councillor Pete West Mayor of Brighton & Hove Brighton Fringe Ltd, City College Brighton & Hove, Pelham St, BN1 4FA Registered Charity No 1116367 | VAT No 892 5694 68 Brighton Fringe Limited, Company No 5578256

in association with Komedia Brighton Each year, Brighton Fringe presents an Award for Excellence at Edinburgh Fringe and invites the recipient to join us in Brighton the following year. Find out more about this year’s award-winning show, WE ARE IAN (pictured), on p.60. “Being a small and relatively new theatre company, receiving the Brighton Fringe award is a great honour. Not only has it allowed us to take our work to the Brighton Fringe, but it also has significantly helped us secure a national tour of WE ARE IAN, after our run at the Edinburgh Festival. The process was exciting, and one that as an emerging company, we found accessible and inclusive. We feel very proud to be the recipients of this year’s award.” - Kat, Na Nora, Kat & Dora, WE ARE IAN

BARRERA is the story of two clowns in mourning. After the death of their best friend, the clowns try to continue living, but what is the point? They still do their performance with card tricks and balloons, but all the glitter and glamour seems far gone. They blunder on through drunken dancing and buckets full of tears, each mishap plunging the audience further into mirth, memory, and pathos.

Brighton favourite Ida is treading the boards once more, embracing a whole new musical genre which she's christened 'Slipped Disco' or 'Artificial Hip-Hop' - as featured on various pirate grime radio stations around London's East End. She's launched her new album, 'Get Old or Die Tryin'' and invites you to join her for an old fashioned, New Wave sing-a-long. You ain't heard nothin' like it!

Notorious cabaret reprobate Joe Black evokes the spirit of the infamous 1920s Berlin nightclub, The Eldorado. Abandon your troubles at the door and allow yourself to slip out of realities, trials and tribulations. Mister Joe Black blurs the line between utterly sinister and completely delightful. Irreverent, comical and devilishly charming. www.misterjoeblack.com

Come down-under to a sunburnt country where cars rule, hitchhiking kills and dingoes eat babies. Innovation Award, Adelaide Fringe 2016 winner.

"Britain's greatest living anti-comedian" (The Guardian) wades into the thorny issue of foreign policy. Ever thought your relationship with your next-door neighbour is in fact a foreign policy? No? That's lesson number 1 from critic's favourite Ed Aczel. If we all practised good manners, what a lovely world we would live in. Join Ed to see how this relates to the current global maelstrom, whatever that is.

You heard them on BBC Radio and now they present a high-octave hour of comedy based around the one thing that unites the Great British public: booze culture. There will be one-liners, limited audience interaction and, most importantly, nuanced musings about the Cold War! Many people like to party but only the chosen few really know how.

"A very funny new stand up." (Time Out). www.harrietkemsley.com

Harun Musho'd explores his own identity, weaving politics, religion and history into the story of his family and their antics. Possibly not a show for sensitive souls (or indeed anyone who believes they have a soul, sensitive or not). "This is a fun, lively show, and Musho'd has the makings of a great comedian. I would highly recommend it" **** (Views from the Gods)

Think you know charades? Think again! After two sell-out years at Brighton Fringe, 'Haven't a Clue..!' returns, now in the late-night slot, for an X-rated version! In this crazy, hilarity-filled hour, comedy meets game show meets improv as two teams of Brighton Fringe comics pit their skills and wit against each other with this hysterical twist on the classic. You won't look at charades the same way again!

Will and Heidi are two thoughtful, principled stand-ups who will do anything to get a laugh, including dropping all principles. Cerebral, silly, surreal and sibilant stand-up from two rising stars, one the winner of 'So You Think You're Funny' 2016, and the other who should be commended for his persistence.

SOLO SHOW

STAND-UP

Responsible for the most popular TED Talk of 2016, James Veitch brings his hilarious new show 'Game Face', with more geeky comedy about life, love and enabling Bluetooth. A glorious show of esoteric, anarchic and unashamedly Powerpoint-fuelled comedy from the Independent's 'One to Watch'.

Jane's a bit of a cow. Mardy cow, selfish cow, lazy cow, evil cow - she's described herself as all these things at some point in her life. But is it fair on her? Or even on cows? This is a one-woman show about the insults we call ourselves. There'll be jokes and honesty and some facts about cows. "Genuine belly-laughs" (ThreeWeeks).

PERFORMANCE ART

The world preview of Lucy's new show - a coming to terms/ retelling of the history of England and spiritual revolution. A problematic confrontation of the times, a story about being together and some improbably beautiful songs, performed by a goddess, of sorts. "Hopkins is fantastic" (The Guardian). www.lucyhopkins.tumblr.com

Post-popular prodigy Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad present a trashstep-dubpunk morality play for the modern world. Casting herself in all the main roles, Lucy attempts to re-connect to her moral conscience by reenacting the New Testament via a Nu-wave holy trinity of dance, power ballads and performance art. With trademark absurdism and enthusiasm in the face of existential deadlock.

Malcolm Hardee Award nominee and Best Show winner Buxton Fringe, Nathan Cassidy explores bravery in a volatile world. Cassidy at his brave and honest best. No gimmicks, no f***ing about, no prisoners. "A great comedian" **** (Broadway Baby), "The entire second row is pissed... and there are only two rows" (Steve Bennett, Chortle). www.nathancassidy.com

Nathan Willcock, Chortle Student Comedian runner-up, brings a show to Brighton Fringe. It's going to be really funny. It'll most likely feature jokes loosely weaved around the themes of success, love and our current political situation. He will also probably mention a textile designer from the 19th century. "Slick and Silly" (Steve Bennett, Chortle), "Spot-on political jokes" (Arts Awards Voice).

The award-winning Sleeping Trees return to unleash their fast-paced physical comedy on Wild West movies, complete with a rip-roaring live score, over 100 brand new characters and one of the most majestic tumbleweeds ever seen in the west. "The birth child of Monty Python and the League of Gentlemen" (Time Out).

Left-wing, highbrow, feminist, atheist comedian Kate Smurthwaite finally takes on the issue right at the very heart of women's rights: men. And she's taken "getting inside the subject" to a new level - performing the whole show in drag as her male alter-ego Milo Standards!

A comedy rap musical about urban poet Wisebowm, a working class guy who falls in love with a middle class girl, so goes gluten free and gets into yoga and pilates to win her heart. It's not easy being well deep, intelligent and humble all at the same time, but someone has to do it. Covering topics such as his addiction to gluten, it's no surprise that Wisebowm is on his way to becoming a superstar.

Sixty minutes of mad vocals, dancing, joy, seduction, escapology, partial nudity and wish fulfilment. The show blends theatre, cabaret and musical comedy into one mad fun fest. 'Witt 'n' Camp' recently featured at 'The Giant's Gala' (hosted by David Schwimmer) and the 'Wifi4Refugees Fundraiser' (alongside James McAvoy).

STORYTELLING

A stand-up comedy show brought to you by pet-loving funny guys Simone Belshaw and James Sarek. As we are sure you have gathered from the title, this is a show dedicated to cats and dogs. As part of the project, Simone and James will be raising funds for local animal charities and creating awareness about animal welfare. Half of all proceeds from every show will be going to a nominated charity or shelter.

Nominated for the Melbourne Fringe Comedy Award 2016. Sarcastic, satirical and hilariously self-deprecating, Woolly is a sheep with serious issues. Witness the tale of how one sexually frustrated, 20-something Brit dealt with rejection in the most absurd way possible: by running away to a shearing shed in South Australia. What emerged was more sheep than man. Now he's out, and he's looking for ewe!

Two battles in one: the poets and rappers of Brighton are joined by their comrades from Bristol to continue their epic struggle. But they stand together (temporarily) for the battle between the cities. Winner: Argus Angel Award for Artistic Excellence, "Heart-warming, impressive, brilliant to behold" (Brighton Source), No.1 in Metro's Brighton must-see events. www.poetsvmcs.com

Comic nonsense, social commentary and wry humour - wordplay on subjects ranging from quantum physics through the search for knowledge to heroes, with some anti-establishment righteousness thrown in. "Performs with a subtle conviction that's compelling to watch" (The Guardian).

Doors 7pm, 8pm start. www.jonthestoryteller.com

POETRY

Join us for a pigment-drenched journey. Have you ever thought about what colour love is? What about rage? For this live podcast, we've invited local storytellers and musicians to share stories evoked by colour over three sessions. Hosted by Chris T-T, each night is inspired by a different hue: blue, red and green. More info/submit a story: www.theoldmarket.com/wilderstories

This is the fourth show in the series 'Lions Led By Asses' using poetry, song and facts. We shall look at the aftermath of the Somme and Verdun and facts leading to the US entry into the war. We will look at 1917 and the Battles of Ypres and Passchendaele and life on the home front. We shall sing the usual chorus songs and popular songs of 1917 and also listen to poetry of that era.

CONTEMPORARY

A powerful piece exploring the issues surrounding male sexual abuse. Based on real experiences, a man is suddenly confronted with his past and the reactions of those closest to him. With the stage as a platform for debate, focus is on the attitudes and behaviour of his friends and family as they become the protagonists in this forum theatre piece.

The hunt is on! In the absurd maze of society, who is the hunter? The prey cannot run, nor hide, enslaved in the arrogance of a system that devalues human nature and thrives in the deprivation of hope. A fear-producing industry relentlessly divides us into those producing and those consuming fear.

A spectacular, playful romp through retail therapy, division, hope, fear, globalisation, money, power, addiction, bigotry, liberalism, the political elite, the rise of the right and the impotence of the left all underpinned with a rollicking good soundtrack played live and in real time! All aboard for this immersive, 360° rollercoaster ride through the neo-geosocio-political landscape of our time. Enjoy the trip!

NEW WORK

What happens when you ask a 6-year-old boy and a 90-year-old woman the same question? Through the use of real voices, see what fears are shared among generations and what hopes we can hold onto amidst the chaos of modern society. Experimenting with physical theatre, a loop pedal and ramshackle instruments, listen to us tell our story, their story and, most importantly, your story.

One young man's journey into sight loss and his struggle to reconstruct a life from the ashes of the old. A deeply personal story told with honesty, dark humour, music and occasionally just falling over for a cheap laugh.

Footing a ladder for everyone else to climb up, this builder's world is honest, rude and funny. A show about struggle, wisdom, dignity and swearing. Lots of swearing. "Brutal, moving, and hilarious" (The Argus), "Superb parodies, fine acting and unexpected tenderness" (Fringe Guru).

"But... your grace?" said Sancho, "What you see over there aren't giants, but windmills." "Obviously," replied Don Quixote, "you don't know much about adventures." The maddest thing of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be. Mad? Maybe. Right? Possibly. A riotous retelling of 'Don Quixote' for all ages. Music, comedy and a disappearing donkey.

'Don't Leave Me Now' is inspired by two real-life stories. The play explores with humour, insight and compassion the impact of early onset dementia on two very different families, highlighting the emotions, dilemmas and challenges. Dementia is not an illness confined to elderly people. The impact on families is profound. www.dontleavemenow.co.uk

The Pals do their best to keep each other's spirits up, with trenchant sarcasm and a camaraderie that only comes from knowing one another for years.

The true story of Helena, an amiable 29-year-old Slovak woman, and Linda, a 5-year-old, miserable, loveless cat. For years, barely tolerating each other's company was enough, but when personal and political circumstances change, will the pair reconcile or will Helena board the flight home alone?

One man's struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. What happens when he loses control? How does he cope with life's struggles and these things he cannot control? How does he ask for help? The show combines physical theatre with performance art, occasionally relying on sign language to articulate the feelings that words cannot. www.carljamesperformer.co.uk

When ex-lovers meet after many years, what can we believe about the stories they tell? 'So You Say' explores how perspectives diverge, through both self deception and dishonesty. Funny, shocking, bittersweet. With Charly Sommers and Russell Shaw. Directed by Sam Chittenden.

'Stimela' has swept across the globe like a tidal wave of soaring voices and stomping feet. Gumboot dancing was born out of the oppressive gold mines of South Africa. The slave-labourers developed their own language by slapping their gumboots and rattling their ankle chains, celebrating the body as a musical instrument whilst highlighting South Africa's rich and complex culture.

Jasper has spent months alone in his cell since his brothers passed. Now a light shines through in the form of Rose. But is his new companion all she appears to be? Locked in a prison away from anything, who is to say what is a mere story and what is a memory of a very real past? Minds have the power to make a heaven of a hell. And vice versa.

In this tapestry of storytelling, poetry and monologue, Arachne spins tales of darkness, death, and feminine mystique. Characters including Eurydice, Lot's wife, Cleopatra, and a black widow, get to set the record straight. Written and performed by Sam Chittenden. "superb... mesmeric and fantastic" (audience member).

I guess you wanted to have fun on your spring break. Come back to uni relaxed, refreshed, and ready to take on the rest of the semester. Only this morning, you woke up to find your friend lying dead in the middle of your campsite. Right on top of where the fire used to be. It must have hurt, falling like that; you can see the front of his shirt is burnt on the embers. Well, there go your summer plans.

Soviet Russia, 1937. Five great writers are placed in a room with an infinite supply of vodka, cigarettes and fear. For each writer it is their last chance, and every word is loaded. A tense blend of violence, comedy and physical theatre. Written by Luke Ofield.
