b2ap3_thumbnail_TeaTime2.jpgSo, our first week of shows goes away. Six improvised silent movies created on the spot based on audience suggestions. First of all, our audience is growing up everyday. We started with not-so many and we ended the week with almost a sold-out (just 10 seats left). It's our first year in Edinburgh and nobody knows us here so, we are really proud of this result and we hope it can go everyday better!

We missed three show descriptions and so here we are: Fourth show was "The Magician" a story of a selfish magician and an enterprising assistant. Very funny stuff. Then was time for
b2ap3_thumbnail_TeaTime.jpg"The painter" a very jealousy drama, ended so bad for the main character. And today was the "Spaceship repairman" time with a sci-fi story, freely (i said Freely Mr. Lucas) inspired to Star Wars, except for the fact that Darth Vader was looking for someone who can fix his breathing machine.

Now it's time for some rest, 'cause sunday is our day off. We need to recharge our batteries 'cause flyering and playing and do everything
we need to do is really really tiring... Anyway we're starting having real fun in doing these show and it goes everyday better, but it's improv and so the failure is right behind the corner and we're ready to deal with it! :)

Meanwhile (one of our favorite intertitle cards) other two reviewers liked our show and you can find the reviews here (first and second).

What can we say? Thank you yo everyone, audience, reviewers and crowdfunders 'cause this experience is f***ing amazing!

P.S. In the pictures you can see us drinking some tea after the show when we have our cruel FEEDBACK!

b2ap3_thumbnail_Review1.jpgIt's five star time. No, it's not related to Beppe Grillo and his stuff, but it's how our first reviewer judges out our second show "The farmer". We're very happy even because here at the Fringe are those kind of reviews that bring audience to your show and, because of the 6000+ shows everyday, it's really difficult to do it. 

By the way this is an "Emotional rollercoaster". First day: not so good, second day: wonderful, third day: quite good and now we're waiting for our forth day. The third day show was "The Funeral Director" and we were not able to resist to put in the story a mafia boss, falled in love with a woman promised to our funeral director. Oh man, what a story! At the real end we had a zombie too! Fun.

There was a reviewer yesterday? We really don't know, as we don't know this today and tomorrow. Everyday a review (good or bad) can jump out from the web and you must be ready to deal with them passing fastly from joy to sadness and then to joy again. The only way to survive is really don't care so much about the reviews and be focused just on your show that, actually, it's the most important thing!

Oh, we are eating a lot of Spam, by the way. It's wonderful.

Greetings,

Hi Guys! How are you?

We're great! Everything here is supercool and we started to understand how Fringe things works.  First of all we had two shows. The first b2ap3_thumbnail_VolantinaggioTeam1.jpgtwos. The first one was "The Mad Scientist" a story of potions and mind control. We were very thrilled to perform and so we felt a little bit uncomfortable on stage but the story goes on and we bring a good audience hands at the end of the show. The second day everything was different goes we did "The farmer", a story of cows and poker. It was really really fun and hilarious and we enjoyed it a lot. The same did the audience who went crazy after the show!

This experience is absolutely amazing but is really tiring. We wake up early in the morning and after a fast home-breakfast for of us go out to give some silence-flyers (as you can see in the picture 1).  The people on the street loves us and our moustache-flyers are really working (for what it seems). Then we come back home for a lunch and at two o'clock we started to prepare ourselves. A good warm up and we move to venue for the show.
Everything is set up in 15' and after the show everything goes down in 10' (as you can see in the picture 2). Then we go flyering again

b2ap3_thumbnail_Ritorno1.jpguntil 20 o'clock when we come back home for a dinner and if we're not dying on our sofas (as you can see in picture3) we go out for a shows (yesterday a wonderful improvised musical from the amazing showstoppers). This is all for now, we're waiting for reviews and audience comments but we will tell you everything here on our travel journey. Keep following us even on Facebook (iBugiardini) and twitter (@iBugiardini). Thanks to everyone for your support!

 

We need it all! i Bugiardini

And we're really excited about this. But first of all we're sorry of this two days of silence but here in Edinburgh we had some troubled days. As soon as we landed, we discovery that our most important baggage (the one with all technical stuff for the show) was lost. We were like a magician without his two-pieces woman so we were completely desperate. At 00.30 of our first day, when we were thinking about get as drunk as possible, we received an sms from KLM: "your baggage is flying to Edinburgh, we're sorry about the delay". Yippiyay, it's party time. So the next day we received our baggage and everything can really start.

Yesterday we had our technical rehearsal and of course there were some little problem with our tech, but nothing that can be fixed by our amazing technician SuperMary and the wonderful staff of Gryphon Venue (Thank you Jax an Catelyn!<3). In the evening we had our first "meet the press" party where we talked with a lot of kind reviewer and we invited them at our show! We can't wait to get a some-stars review.

By the way today it's the big day. While i'm writing it's like 6 hours to our first show and in our big big house everyone is really thrilled about this, but by the way, no one is really scared. We are all thinking "This is so coooooooool!" so we have no time to worry!

Well, now it's time to go out and do some flying on the Royal Mile, obviously dressed as 1920's. Shhh.

Looking forward to write again,
thank you for your support

P.S. By the way, our house is amazing, big and beautiful as you can seen in this video.

Hi Guys, first of all we're very sorry about our English. We're gonna write a lot of Grammar Bullshit here 'cause our English goes just some steps ahead "the pen is on the table". But we're gonna try so please forgive us. 

Well, it's August the first and so this blog is starting. We're starting to move to Scotland and here we'll tell you how our #edfringe experience is going in term of shows, audience, new friend, emotions, starbucks and all the rest. Actually, we're not still in Edinburgh 'cause a lot of our improv group is leaving on August 3th, just a day before our technical rehersal and two days before our first show. 

Anyway, everything is ready right now. The show is good, technical stuff are prepared and we're as excited as we can. We spend last month in silent-improvising something like 30 hours for week so we can't wait to try our show in front of the amazing #edfringe audience.

In the next days you'll read here a lot of news and if you'll want to follow our story we'll appreciate it so much that we can invent some of them.

Now it's time to go, but before we'd like to remember you where our show is and to do this, we're gonna post it our Flyers. We're so proud of them! 

Bye guys, see you soon!

The Little liers (i Bugiardini in English)
