To find out more about Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 and the spotlights, please see the introductory article.
Next up in our Spotlight feature is All The King’s Men, which plays Edinburgh Festival until 22 August 2017. I caught up with the company:
Describe your show in three words.
Fresh, creative, fun.
Is this your first Edinburgh Fringe performance experience?
No – this is the groups eighth year at the fringe! The reception to All the King’s Men has always been fantastic and with the breadth of musical genres covered by the group, plus the fresh and creative take on acappella the group has become known for, audiences have always enjoyed an All the King’s Men show!
Who else are you most looking forward to seeing while at the Fringe?
We love seeing the huge variety of creative arts here – it would be too difficult to pick just a few shows!
How do you feel to be performing at C Venues?
We love our venue – working with C Venues is always a delight and the size and location of our space allows us to share our performances with as wide an audience as possible!
Who or what are your inspirations?
We take huge inspiration from other performers here at the Fringe, whether that’s in drama, music or other forms of creative arts.
What is your secret to surviving the intense, fast pace of the fringe?
What are the future plans for your show?
We perform regularly in London (where we’re based) and elsewhere around the globe! We’d love to be able to continue sharing our art with as many people as possible, wherever they may be!
What is the best production you have seen this year – can be any genre, style, in any theatre or performance space?
We had the pleasure of participating in BBC1’s brand new show Pitch Battle this summer! In that we shared a stage with some phenomenal vocal groups from all over the UK – their performances were by far the best of anything that we have seen this year!
Is there anything else you want to highlight about your show/ theatre company/ production?
We’re not just an a cappella show. We endeavour to push the boundaries of vocal music and the result is a show filled with a huge breadth of musical styles and a great deal of experimentation.
