Fringe is the time when I find new artists to follow the rest of the year. Otherwise I just stay in the same cycle of trusting who I know and rarely taking chances.
Right after I had the pleasure to interview this group group on Bitter Lemons*, I reserved my seat. They have a great energy, they know how to describe the work that interests them without bashing all others, and they're game to try anything.
That's the impression I got from The Fire Room as well. I don't think they intended for the weather to match their locale, but otherwise the space felt great for the piece (echo and all).
Here is why I will follow them (and it's a similar reason to Will Play For Food, Naomi Bennett and Four Clowns).
Fugitive Kind. Live. Theater. ...
This was an amazing work of art, from the set design to the pre-show staging, all the way to the stunning climax. I loved everything about it (except the lack of air conditioning in the building), especially the brilliant direction of Amanda McRaven. This is a must see!...
