2015 Episode 1

Hi all!

Welcome back to Hanging at the Fringe for 2015. I’m happy to report that we are now an officially accredited media outlet, which is a huge step!

This year, we’re doing things a bit differently. I am gathering groups of people together to have a longer discussion about the Fringe, and then of course talk a bit about their shows. This first episode is all local performers – we talk a bit about what it’s like to be a local during the Fringe, but a bunch of other things too!

As is becoming tradition, we had a technical hiccup on the first podcast of the year. This time, it was a low battery problem, so we miss a bit of Calum’s introduction, but not to worry, all his information is below, along with everyone else’s!

David Grimes (@tiggrzz) was representing EGTG (@TheGrads) who are doing two shows this year: The Witch of Edmonton and Death and The Maiden. You can find more information about the company at www.egtg.co.uk, or find them on Facebook at The Grads.

Lindsay Corr (@irishcoi) was representing the Scottish Storytelling Centre (@ScotStoryScntre) who have lots of shows on at the Fringe! You can find info about all of their various events here.

Calum Lykan (@talesntours) is doing a show called Brave & Free: Traditional Tales of Scotland. Check it out if you want a taste of some traditional stories.

Emily Aboud was representing EUSOG (@EUSOG) who are doing Little Shop of Horrors this year – family friendly (kinda) with a cool plant! You can find more info about the show at www.littleshopofhorrorfringe.com.

Lastly, Catherine Wilson (@CJMacBeathW) and Doug Garry (@BeardedPipe) were representing the Loud Poets (@LOUDPOETS) who are doing a show called Loud Poets (surprise!) every night at the Storytelling Centre.

Episode eighteen is happening! I spent it podcasting with three awesome women doing a show called This Wide Night about the relationship between two women who were cell mates, after they get out of prison.

2014 Episode 14 – The 56

Episode fourteen is a rollercoaster ride. In the middle of the podcast, my guest Matt Stevens-Woodhead and I we were interrupted by an act flyering us for his show, so we let him plug it! We then got back to serious business and discussed the limitations of doing verbatim theatre, as well as creating a new ratings system for how sad a show can be.

We had a really interesting chat, especially since all the cast members I spoke to had different levels of experience at the Fringe prior to this year. We talked about how, as an artist, you can get inspired during the Fringe, and how seeing other people’s work makes you raise your game.

Episode nine is here, and I’m sitting down with just some of the 20 member strong Lincoln Company. This group is presenting Mojo by Jez Butterworth, although every one of these people is also involved with at least one other show!
