Needy in the Morning
Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2005
For our second show we invited ballet dancer Colin Maggs to come and work with us. Colin's incredible fitness and work ethic, combined with his wonderfull energy and grace as a dancer, really raised the bar for the company. The show ran for two weeks at our second fringe festival, including 10 consecutive show nights.
Physical theatre, Ballet, Music, Percussion and Poetry.
Original press release
“The modern world is full of jaw-dropping hope and hysterical despair - this is our starting point" - Just add water
A reaction to modern life from three powerfully ambitious men who are bewildered by society’s restrictions on life and art.
Using Physical Theatre, Dance, Music and a range of influences from Baryshnikov , Berkoff and Forced Entertainment to Stomp , Frantic Assembly and Cirque du Soleil , they have produced:
''Needy in the Morning'' .
The men introduce themselves using burlesque masks and clowning to send-up the often ‘unique’ world of the cabaret circuit.
The audience are then taken through a factory of physical strength and precision, steered by the “pulsating beat”, mixture of classical techniques with primal rebellion, and awareness of satire.
Blood, sweats of intensity and tears of laughter.
“In Edinburgh everyone starts from scratch and has to work as hard as each other. No room for reputations and egos just let the creativity flow.”
Tom Barry, Co-Director
