Female Friendship shines through in Festival Favourite at Deda
The Hiccup Project present their award-winning show ‘May-We-Go-Round’ at Déda on Thursday 18 October at 7.30pm. The performance has received numerous awards including Outstanding Theatre Award at the Brighton Fringe Festival.
Founded by Northern School of Contemporary Dance graduates, Chess Dillon-Reams and Cristina MacKerron, The Hiccup Project aim to create innovative and accessible work, with a humorous and gritty take on real-life experience for audiences with any amount of prior experience of theatre and dance. ‘May-We-Go-Round?’ is their debut work, receiving numerous awards including the Pebble Trust Brighton Fringe Award.
Honest, provocative and laugh out loud funny ‘May-We-Go-Round?’ opens a window into the hilarious highs and heart-breaking lows of Chess and Cristina’s real-life romantic encounters, taking audiences along for the bittersweet ride. Having discovered their diary from the age of 10, devoted to the detailed records of their many loves, fourteen years on Chess and Cristina sit in a pub realising that all they ever seem to talk about is their romantic encounters (or lack of). They decided to make a show about it.
In a collision of fiercely energetic dance and comedic theatre, Chess and Cristina relay direct extracts from Chess’ diary, summer flings, and some of the romantic clichés that are all so uncomfortably familiar. The strength of their female friendship shines through as they jangle round the merry-go-round of romance.
