Fringe 2019: Q&A with Alice Fernbank and Graham Dickson on The Golden Fly

Name of your show:

The Golden Fly

How would you describe your show in one sentence? 

An epic tale of a shapeshifting Goddess who journeys across worlds in search of a golden awakening.

Is this the first time that you are performing at the Fringe?

No.

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

I’m not sure, there are many shows where you get to hear an epic myth from start to finish with no theatrical frills, just a larger than life storyteller and an Olympic flautist bringing you the magic of a traditional Celtic wonder tale through captivating music and storytelling.

The Centre’s Fringe showcase is exploring and reacting to the challenges we face in today’s world by sharing stories in all their forms – what is your show saying?

This story is a very old story that is crammed with meaning and metaphor that is transferable to our current times. That said it is not for me to tell my audience what it means or what it is saying. That is for them to decide.

How do you #MakeYourFringe itinerary? What’s the show that you don’t want to miss?

I usually wait for the recommendations to role in and then I decide what to see. And I always support my friends if they’re performing.
