Fringe 2018: Q&A with Annie George on Twa

How would you describe your show in one sentence?

Unique, hard-hitting, poetic and highly visual exploration of creative resistance and the different ways in which women are silenced.

Is this a new show or have you performed it elsewhere?

It’s a new show!

Is this your first visit to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe?

My eighth as a performer, my eleventh with a show, my fourteenth of working at it in any capacity

What’s your favourite thing about the Fringe?

There’s always something to see or be at, and I love meeting artists from other places, and in all honesty the SSC is my favourite place to be

How have you been preparing for the Fringe? How has the show developed/changed since your original idea?

Developing the show through rehearsal and a sharing on the 18th of July at SSC.  Flore and I have been talking and sharing ideas and research about it for a year since we met as featured artists at Magnetic North’s Rough Mix in Peebles

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other Festival offerings?

The cross-artform nature of the piece, use of live visual art, that it is a durational performance, with the art building up over the 15 performances and in the fact that we will have created an entirely new piece of art at the end of it

If your show was a place in Edinburgh, which place would it be and why?

Leith, because it is authentic, vibrant, edgy, scary, dangerous, the fine and urbane rubs shoulders with the rough, honest, truthful, and ultimately hopeful.
