Big Fat Bribe Blog: lights, camera, chicken
In which we receive a camera made of chicken nuggets and a whole lotta labels
This article is from 2015.
There are many things you expect to land on your desk the week that the Fringe starts – flyers, posters, a deeply impassioned press release – but a camera made of chicken nuggets is not one of them.
This extraordinary item was given to us by the very same people who sent us a house made of cheese last year, and whilst architecturally impressive, it is also raised a lot of questions: is the lense made out of cheese or chicken? Is it still edible? If a regular camera adds ten pounds, how many does this add?
If Bawsoot Theatre Company's show The Raven is half as imainative as this bribe, you're in for something unique. It's inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's gothic poem, and is interpreted as a physical twist and tumble through The Man's subconscious. *insert spooky sounds here*. Catch it at the Space on the Mile until Aug 22.
Also bribing us this week was Joe Sellman-Leava. This fella has a show called Labels, and rather ingeniously, he sent select members of our staff some tea, chocolate biscuits and wine covered in – you guessed it – labels. Not everything's a metaphor, guys.
