Description

Doppelganger DJs Barry and Barry desperately seek connection with the world beyond... Two of Scotland's finest live artists, Rosana Cade (Walking:Holding, Sister) and Ivor MacAskill (STUD, Alma Mater), spew out their dark and riotous take on modern communication, as the identical hosts in a surreal phone-in talk show. Finding humour, warmth and despair in the absurd, they spin a thick web of cliches and catchphrases in their outer space echo-chamber, accompanied by a weird, wild soundscape by Yas Clarke. www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com. www.britishcouncil.org/edinburghshowcase. ***** 'Spooky, sinister, skilful' (VoiceMag.uk) **** 'Sharp, smart and seriously entertaining' (Herald).

It's all about YOU and YOUR opinions! LOVED this show - weird, hilarious and kind of profound.

Moot Moot (*)
Two virtually identical men sit in chairs and portray radio hosts of a call-in show who constantly repeat the mantra “Get in touch. It is all about you and your opinions” despite never taking any calls. This absurdist comedy relied on so much repetition that the bulk of the audience were resting their heads in their hands sharing bored looks with each other. The only break in the tedium was when the two explored the many configurations of their office chairs.

This was the 75th most enjoyable of the 76 shows I have seen so far this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: www.fringefan.com.

‘What’s going on…??’ Rosana Cade cries, with their head in the seat of a swivel chair, spinning slowly in front of a fixated and silent audience.‘What’s going on…??’ Responds Ivor MacAskill, lying on his front and discovering that his swivel chair has an unfoldable footrest. He gazes at it like...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 42 days ago

Barry and Barry (Rosana Cade and Ivor MacAskill) enter the Demonstration Room at Summerhall and stand still. After what feels like an unbearably uncomfortable period of time the pair begin to talk. For the next hour the duo fill the void of silence through repeated phrases, radio jingles and physical...
