In Figmentally, audiences are invited to dive into the world of a writer whose uncontrollable imagination takes over her story and life, as reality erodes to imagination. Part comedy, magic, unexpected puppetry, acro-dance, and audience immersion.
Why should someone come see your show?
This show has a lovely secret in it. A tantalizing secret that we have kept out of all the promotion and we don’t even tell our friends. We want you to come see it for yourselves and laugh with us. We made the kind of show that we wanted to see. It’s not just a play … and it’s not just the circus. It’s a dreamy blend. We made it from all the funny things that we see in the world, all the silly day to day games we play.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
If it was a superhero it would be SuperCalifragalistic. A superhero who could take the ordinary, and make it funny, and a bit nonsensical at the same time.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
Only one show! We haven’t seen Bushel & Peck, and they are some of our favorite people / family – so we probably have to see that.
#FringeDuJour is a daily peek at some of the shows coming to this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. We’ve asked Fringe artists to answer a few questions to entice you to see what they have to offer and to help cross-pollinate the Fringe.
The 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 7-17 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
