BLOW & HOW TO AVOID MAKING AN ENTRANCE OF YOURSELF (DOUBLE BILL)

BLOW & HOW TO AVOID MAKING AN ENTRANCE OF YOURSELF (DOUBLE BILL)

12th March 2014


Artists Holly Bodmer and Dot Howard collaborate as ‘Odd Comic’ to create observational, site-responsive, humorous performance for intimate audiences in unusual locations.

‘Intriguing, intelligent and frequently laugh-out loud funny’ ****Independent
‘A masterclass in how to do immersive theatre’ ****Edinburgh Spotlight


Tonight they present a double bill of their solo works:

Blow by Holly Bodmer is a performance inspired by a found recording of a music exam. Inviting an audience to listen and to blow, it ploughs through a process of perseverance and questions how to cope with the unsoundly. 'Blow' relives musical failures and other setbacks through a series of bad ‘blows’. It’s for anyone who has ever picked up an instrument and put it down again or for anyone who is afraid of ‘blowing it’

‘How to Avoid Making an Entrance of Yourself’ by Dot Howard is an absurd account of a performance art career spent in fear of the audience. The show exposes the self-doubt that underlies any attempt to make ‘good art’. Attempting to remain anonymous, Dot re-enacts disastrous onstage experiences and anxieties through surprising visual occurrences, a script delivered from within the wings, and Signalong – the sign-supporting system based on British Sign Language.

"An avant-garde piece of performance art, this is probably one of the most interesting things at the Fringe" Isabella Steer, ThreeWeeks

Her backstage narratives and confessions are perfectly pitched – honest and generous…The aesthetic and courage of the performer make this a must-see.
Jessica Cheetham, Fringe Review
