Invite roving reporters Alain Bazzard and Nina Fontano and your Festival will never be the same again. Every day our hard-hitting reporters scour the Festival in search of breaking news, and every night they present their findings in the form of a live chat show. The chat show features interviews with Festival figures, and, of course, footage of the breaking news of the day, ably edited by experienced film maker Paul Bell.
Steve "Woko" Jackson, the Australian TV chef, gives a culinary demonstration that would make Delia Smith's hair stand on end. A non-stop send-up of every cooking show that’s ever been. a chain of events triggering a domino effect-leading to a loop of disasters which self perpetuate one another ad infinitum . A random chain of slapstick blunders that develops into a physical conceit of chronological disaster- with hilarious results.

The Chain is a concept created to develop the comedy of repetition as it relates to chance, destiny and the interconnected-ness of all things. This show is site specific, and aims to use the unique environment invoked by each festival to create a community-based event about being caught up in the moment, transcended in time.
It is ideally developed in a workshop situation where we use physical theatre to explore a comedic world that questions the changing fortunes and patterns that we all experience everyday.
