Biding Time (remix) is a stunning collaboration between musician Louise Quinn (A Band Called Quinn), Grid Iron Theatre Director Ben Harrison & Scottish Film maker Uisdean Murray in response to international shared story project Biding Time. The show combines a live band with feature-film-quality visuals, a big rabbit & the first ever use of silent disco technology in this context to give a truly immersive & original audience experience.
We need your help to fund three performances of Biding Time (remix) at the award winning Summerhall venue on the 4th, 11th & 12th of August.
Biding Time (remix) tells the story of aspiring singer/ songwriter Thyme & her journey through the fame factory as she pursues success in the music industry. A lot of it is based on Louise Quinn's own experience of being signed to a major record label & the highs & lows that ensued.
The show premiered to a sold out audience at The Arches last autumn & garnered 4 star reviews from The Scotsman, The Herald, TV Bomb & The Public Reviews:
'....A vital piece that's alternately comical and sinister but musically compelling throughout.'
The Scotsman ****
'...thought provoking, memorable & one-off stuff.'
The Herald ****
