Interview: When We Grow Up We’ll Be Old

An interview with FringeReview on our upcoming production, “When We Grow Up We’ll Be Old “   What’s the theme of your show? When We Grow Up We’ll Be Old explores what it’s like to grow up in a small market town. Our two characters, while playing a fantasy board game, muse over the time they staged a fantasy epic movie in the North Devon town of Barnstaple. In truth, what they actually discover is that their small town, and the everyday goings on there, are far more interesting than their intended Hollywood fantasy. This project is part film, part […]

“Audacious. Enthralling. Challenging. Delightful.”

“Together” was performed at the 2016 Prague Fringe Festival 45 times in 9 days, which great responses. Please read former Canadian Ambassador Michael Calcott’s review below.   “A Prague idyll.  That is what I experienced yesterday by participating in “Together”, Almost Human’s personalized tour of Mala Strana.  Each performance involves only four participants – the explorer, the observer, the lover and the dreamer – who are given a headset which provides the instructions for their individualized tour.  I was the lover and was accompanied by a lovely young woman while a love letter was read over the headphones.  We wandered through […]

After The Thaw

International film-as-performance company Almost Human present their first venture into film production, ‘After The Thaw’, a music video for Scottish acoustic songwriter, Lorkin O’Reilly. Merging traditional film making with stop motion animation, ‘After The Thaw’ explores constructed fantasies, loss and destruction, and the gentle, melancholic warmth that longing provides us when we find ourselves missing someone, or something. A man has designed a model world in which to lose himself, but when he exacts his frustrations with his constructed fantasy upon the model itself, he finds his battle to remain there could destroy the very fabric of its being, Meanwhile, […]
