Don't be Afraid...

The Freaky first performance art piece by Mr & Mrs Newman. Inspired by Universal Frankenstein, silent movies and the awkward pauses of A Jess Franco film (without the perverted deviancy, this was a family friendly show), Mrs Newman played Dr Frankenstein / the Bride of Frankentein, Mr Newman played the Creature... 

Part of Collaborasaurus a fantastically waywood performance art show at Vivid curated by Alex Billingham. The event was documented by Marcin Sz.
Also featuring performances by: Emily Scarrott & Tom Kilby, Marcud Keating & Friends, David Checkley & Aleksandere Wojtulewicz. We were delighted and challenged to take part.  (And both as stiff as the tin man afterwards) 
Hope it didn’t creep y’all out…

A bogey bye bye from the creatures featured in Little Monsters as the curtains come down and the space is returned to proper pristine white. Not a trace, secretion or shadow will be left, but a crack in the wall will open for Monster Club III... We'll be back...

Thank you to all the artists and monster makers; Anita Roye, Kevin Ryan, Shelley Hughes, Josh Bather, David Miller, Sarah Fortes Mayer, Paul Newman, Ian Andrews, Prabhat Basu, Alex Robertson, Emily Sparkes, Jamie Fowkes, & Craig David Parr
