Help Buzzcut Productions Bring Bark Bark to Edinburgh Fringe!

About the Play:

Bark Bark is a live cinema play told from the perspective of a dog.

A dog with a bird-killing problem. Two people stitching their relationship together. A house filled with taxidermy animals.  When a young couple responds to a dog-sitting advert expecting a free holiday, they stumble into an unexpected tradition.Using cameras, puppets, and diorama sets, five performers weave together a live animation on stage.

The show was developed through The North Wall’s 2023 Arts Lab company scheme and the original run was described as ‘utterly spellbinding’ (IsisMagazine.org.uk). Bark Bark was shortlisted for the New Diorama’s Untapped Award and the Pleasance’s Charlie Hartill Award.

Bark Bark will be running from 1st – 26th August at the Anatomy Lecture Theatre at Summerhall at 12:00 each day.

How You Can Help:

As an early career theatre company, we’re excited to be bringing Bark Bark to the Edinburgh Fringe, but we need your help to get there! We've already secured the majority of our funding, but we still need to raise a final £2,000 to cover our costs. Your donation will help us pay for:

  • Accommodation for the company in Edinburgh.
  • The company to travel to and from Edinburgh. 
  • Rehearsal space for the show. 

By supporting us, you'll be helping to bring new and exciting work to the Edinburgh Fringe! We've also got some rewards on offer depending on how much you're able to donate to the project. These include merchandise featuring original designs by artist Dowon Jung, as well as complimentary tickets to the show.

About the Company:

Buzzcut is an early career theatre company that makes live performances with live cameras. We are a group of recent graduates based between London and Oxford. The company have made three shows, all united by a formal interest in the intersection between theatre and film. Our first original work 'Sockpuppet' used live deepfake technology to swap the faces of three stage performers in real time. The show explored the creator economy, deepfake technology, and the difference between a ‘celebrity’ and ‘civilian face’. It was an Evening Standard Top Pick of VAULT Festival 2023, and was described as 'Urgent, intrepid, and gorgeously performed' (Binge Fringe ★★★★). We're all about putting big concepts on small stages through playful camera-led work.
