Frontman at Inbetween Time, Bristol

So Frontman is almost finished. Our first showing will be at IBT on 4th December at 9:30pm

Its going to be at Circomedia, and we spent a day there last week setting up and playing with the space and the sound and it got us really excited. The piece has been on a really interesting journey and we’re really intrigued to see what happens when it meets an audience. Unlike our previous two shows our works in progress haven’t really revealed much of what will happen on the 4th Dec so a lot of it remains terrifyingly unknown but we think we’ve made the show we set out to make so we’ll have to just wait and see….

we’ve experimented with some sound technology which we’re now excited about unleashing, its very simple use of some pretty lofi sound tech and an analogue synth but its something completely new to us! The performance will take place on a small bit of staging made from steel deck surrounded tightly by audience on three sides with Gemma spending most of her time up there with just a mic and some tambourines for company and me controlling the sound from behind. We’ve just got two weeks now to pull it all together and our focus is now on nurturing the meanings that have evolved from what we’re doing and refining the relationship between us and our audience in relation to that. So lots of working through the text and the staging and drawing out exactly what we want from the performance. I’ve also got to finalise which bits of wire plug in where and which nobs need twiddling when, and Gemma’s got a lot of text to memorise……
