Interview with Nir Paldi
FringeReview doesn’t give out many of its legendary Outstanding Theatre Awards. Yet it was an easy decision to award Theatre Ad Infinitum with an award for Translunar Paradise in 2011. Their current production, Ballad of the Burning Star is a very different piece. Here Paul Levy talks to writer and performer Nir Paldi about this unique work, a “story of victimhood, persecution, aggression and love.”
Interview with Tina Kronis and Richard Alger
FringeReview gave an Outstanding Theatre Award for Theatre Movement Bazaar‘s Anton’s Uncles at the Fringe in 2011. Here writer Richard Alger, and choreographer Tina Kronis, (both founders of the company) talk about the realisation of Track 3, a new physical theatre work inspired by Chekhov’s The Three Sisters, brought to the Fringe in collaboration with Greenwich Theatre.
This is called the “Must See Show” rating and our reviewers can nominated a small number of shows for this extra category.
We do this in our chosen role as the ‘Good Fringe Guide’ – seeking out quality work and sharing that with our readers.
The rationale behind the new “MUST SEE SHOW” label is to flag up work of any rating that our review team feels is exciting or interesting in some way. Some work may need improvement, may have flaws but will still represent something potentially ground breaking, bold and a different.
Our “MUST SEE SHOW” rating will help to point that work out and celebrate that boldness. Not all experiments in theatre succeed first time, but the spirit of experimentation and creativity can make for compelling work.
