SpaceDating: The Creeps

We had a little chat with The Creeps about an international tour and the show..

Edinburgh is kicking off my international tour. I’m heading to the Camden Fringe next, then Amsterdam, then United Solo in NYC! Best tour ever!

Tell us about yourself….

I am originally from New Zealand and moved to Los Angeles in 2012. I love clowning and especially Bouffon (grotesque). I am a passionate and driven performer and story teller, and I love great art!! I’m touring my show all around Europe and then taking it to New York where I perform on Broadway as part of the United Solo Festival.

Do you come here often?

Never! This is my first time at the Edinburgh Fringe (also Scotland), and I am SO excited to be kicking off my tour here at The Space!

Early to rise or late to bed?

Usually an early riser. I love waking up early, having coffee and getting the day started, however I have an inkling I won’t be sleeping much this trip- so many things to see and do!

What’s your passion?

Telling good, integral, visceral stories.

What’s better. Physical theatre or stand up comedy?

I’m biased because I’ve never tried stand up, but physical theater is my pick (I’m also performing a physical theater show). However, I would never say no to seeing Amy Schumer or Ricky Gervais live.

Are you monogamous to EdFringe, or do you date other festivals?

I’m keeping my options open. Edinburgh is kicking off my international tour. I’m heading to the Camden Fringe next, then Amsterdam, then United Solo in NYC! Best tour ever!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
