                Inspired by an incredible true story, Fringe First winners Vox Motus, open their new production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on Sunday 8 August at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. Their new production The Not-So-Fatal Death of Grandpa Fredo is a pitch-dark comedy featuring a host of eccentric characters, original live music and stunning design. A frozen body found in a woodshed wreaks havoc in the local community, forcing them to confront questions of science, faith and immortality The Not-So-Fatal Death of Grandpa Fredo is a production where science, humanity and humour meet. Is there home for faith in the dry, factual world of science; can science itself be the deity in which we place our faith? While it is easy to dismiss the Immortality movement as extreme and outrageous we aim for the audience to leave the theatre questioning their own response to ‘conquering the blight of involuntary death’ (the stated mission of the Immortality Institute) and the parallels this draws with world faiths. The play questions what is sacred in today’s media-saturated, Big-Brother-embracing, science-as-religion society. As well as delving into the dark, macabre and comically perverse it is also a quest for emotional truths, a sense of wonder and, ultimately, hope.

                    Dark, dirty and dynamically staged, SLICK was an exploration of greed, corruption and loss-of-innocence using our grotesque ‘human puppets’. Nine years old and permanently attached to his skate board, Little Malcolm Biggar’s sole aim in life is to convince his neglectful parents to buy him a helmet. But all that changes the day crude oil begins pumping up through the Biggar family’s toilet. Elation turns to desperation as the Biggars attempt to keep their new-found wealth a secret from perverted landlord Jerko and his malevolent, ailing mother Mrs Dreich. When the Biggars start trading oil for arms, Malcolm is caught at the centre of an explosive showdown between the feuding neighbours. We combined absurd comedy, visual storytelling, puppetry, object theatre and physical performance to create a unique ensemble performance with comic-strip visuals. We aimed to present a technically complex and accomplished theatre piece that balanced grotesque dark comedy with moments of pathos and human warmth. Slick sold out its Fringe Festival run before touring to a further seven venues across Scotland. The production went on to feature in the 2008 Scotland Live showcase and the Cork Midsummer Festival 2009.
