FLIM NITE presents SHREK (Sheffield)
07/12/2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
What would ‘Shrek’ look like chewed up and spat out by comedians, theatremakers, writers and musicians?
We’ve travelled to the furthest swamps to dredge up our artists and cursed them all to make performance art in order to break the curse. Come along and watch the magical results!
Watch as our acts distort a 3D animated fairy tale parody into something ridiculous, beautiful or unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure. We have entrusted each one of them with a chunk of the film to re-enact, riff around, mash up or explode. There’s no way of telling what will happen.
Cult hit FLIM NITE comes to Sheffield for the fifth time to spread its unique brand of mischief after four years of sowing highly-acclaimed chaos in Manchester.
We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a FLIM.
!!! LINE UP TO BE ANNOUNCED !!!
There are THREE open mic slots available! Email us at [email protected] for a slot. Slots are three minutes long and material must be ‘Shrek’-related (the first film only, please). Remember it’s flim as in FLIM and nite as in NITE. Got it?
“The group take a hammer to well-known films and smash them into something completely different – think a smorgasbord of musical interludes, a dab of poetry and an added bit of standup comedy. Trust us, it’s unlike any other night around!” – The Skinny
“With all the ramshackle pop-anarchism of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and the warmth, variety and bonhomie of a fringe arts night, FLIM NITE is going from strength to strength and is not to be missed.” – NARC
FLIM NITE is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and the National Lottery through the Grants for the arts scheme.
