Sydney Fringe Festival 2016: show profile #3

The show: Sydney-based seven-piece Facemeat is delighted to be involved for the first time with the Sydney Fringe Festival. A show specifically prepared for the festival, Facemeat – The Musical is a spoken-word tale of entrapment narrated by the band’s writer David Sattout and interspersed with new music.

The hour-long journey takes us through an old family home and reveals the awful secrets contained within it. Musically the show traverses rock, blues and cha-cha-cha.

The talent: Facemeat boasts an all-star cast of Adam Moses (Soul Roots Revival Band) on vocals, Ellen Kirkwood (Fat Yahoozah) on trumpet, Oliver Thorpe (Petulant Frenzy) on guitar and vocals, Eden Ottignon (Mister Ott) on bass, Jamie Cameron (The Vegetable Plot) on drums, Byron Mark (Petulant Frenzy) on keys and Ross Harrington (Midnight Tea Party) on alto saxophone and clarinet. Facemeat will also feature the very special talents of puppet master Shani Moffat and composer and writer David Sattout.

The crowd: 25- to 40-year-old music and theatre goers; people who are interested in material that is not regular popular fare.
