The Furies do MayFest

The Furies crash-lands in Bristol next week for the annual performance extravaganza of MayFest. As with previous years, an excellent programme of new theatre takes over a range of venues in the city. Kindle bring The Furies to the Old Vic Studio, which I think will be a terrific place to catch the show – with a markedly different dynamic and vibe to the experience of the recent gigs at The Old Vic Tunnels, London.

As for the rest of the MayFest programme I’d urge audiences to see any of the shows I’ve already encountered – Gary McNair’s mind-shifting Crunch, Belarus Free Theatre’s vital and extraordinary Minsk 2011: A Reply to Kathy Acker, Little Bulb’s uproarious Goose Party and our Brum neighbours The Other Way Works in the up-close-&-personal Avon Calling, which I saw in development 3 years ago. I’m also hoping to catch  Tania El Khoury’s work Maybe if You Choreograph Me… We met Tania at Stan’s Cafe during early stages of developing The Cardinals and she has a wonderful quality in performance – edgy and brave .

The Furies will perform at Bristol Old Vic Studio on friday 18th May and saturday 19th May. Shows start at 9.30pm
