MY NAME IS GIDEON
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE - AUGUST 2016
MY NAME IS GIDEON:
SONGS, SPACE-TRAVEL, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
Written and performed by Gideon Irving
Edinburgh Festival Fringe
MY NAME IS GIDEON fuses song, story and space travel through the experience of a nomadic bard. Gideon's idiosyncratic alchemy of compositions and theater surprises and enchants with moments of unexpected fantasia and a voice that The New Yorker described as "unique and unclassifiable, just like the guy himself."
★★★★★ at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 & Editors' Award Winner
"Unclassifiable? Yes. Unmissable? Undoubtedly." ★★★★★
"Thoroughly entertaining and wholly original." ★★★★
"Even the audience was his instrument, and he made a masterpiece out of us." ★★★★★
GIDEON IRVING (Playwright/Performer) has performed his home show in more than 500 living rooms. Last year with The Foundry Theater, he toured his New York Times Critics' Pick home show, which was featured in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Vice, and Time Out NY. At EdFringe 2015, Gideon and his show partner Hubcap Sloan performed a FIVE STAR run at the UnderBelly which earned them a nomination for the Total Theater Award for Playing With The Form. After this year's EdFringe, Gideon will hop back across the pond for a 5-week Off-Broadway run in NYC. He is currently developing a home show for an international tour using no English; a kids home show with Hubcap; and another solo show for an eighteen month tour across America on horseback.
