theatre_event_bongosGIS A SHOT OF YOUR BONGOS MISTER

27 JUN 2013

By Brian Fleming

Tickets €15/13

(Featuring a post-show discussion with Senegalese traditional performer, Chico)

A Dubliner loses himself in Dakar and brings his Sengalese teachers to a very white 1990s Dublin - this is a story told in music, pictures and anything else Brian Fleming can get his hands on.

A musical story-telling, from Dublin's inner city flats to the suburbs of Senegal, experience the world through a drummer's ear. Between the music and laughs, first world problems fall into perspective.

The show was a sell-out at ABSOLUT Fringe 2011 and at the Turnaround Festival 2012 in Project. Returning from success in New York for one night only in Project, with a very special guest from Senegal - Chico.

"It is told with the easy, unpretentious touch of truth and natural charisma." **** Irish Theatre Magazine

"Solid, colourful storytelling ... the language, the humour - Fleming makes his points personally and effectively." *** Irish Times

"Effortlessly charming and instantly likable... There's an air of Jack Kerouac to him." **** Entertainment.ie

Programmed as part of BIG BANG Festival of Rhythm 2013.
