New Art Club: This Is Now
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2009
It’s 1983 - Madonna releases her first album, Karma Chameleon by Boy George’s Culture Club is the top selling single in the UK, and the 13 year old future contemporary dance star Tom Roden illegally tapes the first ‘Now That’s What I Call Music’ LP onto a C60 cassette. At the same time 15 year old Pete Shenton is busy painting his bedroom black and experimenting with which household product is best for making his hair spiky (its not furniture polish).
Join Britain’s funniest dance duo as they jump headlong into the dark pool of days gone by and come out covered in a filthy 80’s gunk. By deconstructing this classic album Tom and Pete unearth funny dances and philosophical comedy about then, the future and now.

This show was hilarious! I laughed so much, this is a must-see show!

Saw just the audience's childhood friends bit at Mervyn Stutter's Pick of the Fringe and I found it hilarious, so if the rest is even better, I really need to see the whole show - hope it tours!
