It’s not a Con…

The Con Artists are not a seedy group of scammers… but a six-part a capella vocal  group who sing their own arrangements inspired by ‘nerd culture’.

They’ll be performing at the Fringe this March, stealing the show with their vibrant harmonies and costumed fun inspired by film & TV, games, the Internet and pop culture.

The Con Artists joined us in the studio to share some harmonious harmonies from their show ‘Sing All The Memes’.

Deliverance from nothing

Theatre, comedy and music weren’t the only performances at the Fringe this year.There was something very special going on in Gluttony in Rymill Park.

It was Deliverance – a durational piece where three performers entered and stayed in a 6 x 5 metre outdoor space for 10 days.

They initially were naked with absolutely no possessions.

That is, until the goodwill of passersby came through, with people sharing clothes, objects, shelter and food with the three.

Kat Henry, William McBride and Penny Harpham lived this experiment for 240 hours. Kat spoke with Jennie Lenman about what the three discovered.
