Plenty of fish in the Fringe Festival sea

Plenty of fish in the Fringe Festival sea

Bastard Theatre Company producer Aden Date said the former Gidgegannup resident was among the youngest players nominated for the prestigious Martin Sim award for best new WA work in 2015.

Fish in the Sea was a sleeper hit last year,” Date said.

“It’s a feast for the senses: a musical comedy centred around a classic boy-meets-girl love story, but surrounded on all sides by comedic absurdity.”

He described Buckle and fellow performers Nick Pages-Oliver and Jessica van Wyke as the ‘underdog trio’ inspired by the idea of ‘total theatre’.

The concept of ‘total theatre’ embraces sound, movement and music to overwhelm and disorient the audience.

“If Andy Warhol, Monty Python and The Simpsons got together, it might look something like Fish in the Sea,” Date said.

Catch the show at the Noodle Palace, Hokkein House, from January 23 to 20.
