Crazy Weather and Compact Festivals
July 6, 2011 § Leave a comment
Is it summer? Monsoon season? Who knows? What we are sure about is that Electric Tales is happening on the 12th July at The Stand, Edinburgh and we are excited. July is just a brilliant time to watch both comedy and storytelling, stretching those muscles as you prepare for the madness of the Festival. August can just be a massive sensory overload so it’s nice to see things in the peace of July, before a student starts flyering in your living room.
One thing we love about Electric Tales is that we are like a wee Fringe-in-a-night. We’re really interested in the spaces where performance types crossover and mate with each other, producing crazy babies who stay up all night and drink gin from birth. Cabaret, storytelling, comedy, dance, theatre, burlesque… all of these beautiful places have the potential to tell brilliant comedy stories and we just can’t wait to stretch our wings further and see what else people come up with.
We’ve confirmed another performer for the night: comedian John Gavin, who’s been creating waves on the circuit since he started the funnies in July 2008.
So, don’t forget – 12th July at The Stand, York Place, Edinburgh. Doors at 7.30pm, show starts at 8.30pm and tickets are only £4 (£3 concessions).
In other news, we’re gearing up our training programme. Part of our aim is get more people interested in comedy storytelling, and to make sure performers feel confident when working outside their normal sphere. Check our new training page for more information about up-coming, great value events.
Happy Rainy Days
