I think this particular day (August 16th! haha) was one of the more entertaining Fringe days for me. Somehow my timing was just right and I managed to catch quite a few street shows, including the one that’s my favourite of all the street performances – a Japanese group called To R Mansion. Trust the Japanese to come up with odd names. lol
They called their show “The Cinema Race”, and it was pretty entertaining. It was basically spoofs/reenactments of movie scenes. I thought my classmates should have been there to watch it becauase I’m sure they’d have enjoyed it even more since they’d probably recognise more of the scenes than I did.
I thought the Matrix sequence was amusing.
There was a Forrest Gump-esque bit…
I didn’t recognise a lot of things, but it was still loads of fun to watch!
Have a video clip too (it’s the start of the “race”) :
Some other pics from around High Street…
I’ve no idea how this guy twisted himself into that position.
Promoters for another Japanese group, called “Ple-Mix.”
There was a Korean group trying to promote their show by doing dances from their play or whatever it was but I think it was hampered by the fact that their radio wasn’t loud enough and you could hardly hear the music over the general noise in High Street.
