FRUIT FLIES LIKE A BANANA
3 Performers.. 20+ Pieces. 60 Minutes
Working at break-neck speed, the multi-talented performers of the The Fourth Wall combine music, theatre, and dance in this sprint-triathlon variety show. The audience chooses the show order by picking cards from a deck and even determine parameters for some pieces created on the spot. Every performance is unique! As the onstage timer ticks down, The Fourth Wall will blow your mind with tricks, bust your gut with laughter, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye with beautiful music.
Time Flies Like an Arrow... Fruit Flies Like a Banana!!
Every performance of "Fruit Flies" is different - from show order to parameters to repertoire. We're always adding new pieces, changing old pieces, and finding new ways to make our friends and fans join in. Inspired by Chicago's Neo-Futurists' "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind" (30 plays in 60 minutes), we strive to turn conventional classical music performances on their ear and leave our audiences with a good feeling in their belly. "Fruit Flies" was premiered at the 2013 IndyFringe Festival in August 2013 and has been performed at festivals, universities, schools, and performing arts centers across the country ever since.
