Audience participants, applaud yourselves.
Anyone miss being a passive theatre-goer? Are they over, then, the days of sitting back and letting the entertainment come to you, with the only participation required a few flutterings of applause and the occasional titter?
Perhaps not over, but certainly on hold for the duration of the Fringe, taking as it does the whole concept of audience participation to new levels. Amy G encourages her audience to, in the parlance of those across the Atlantic, ”make out”, Exposure audiences have to take their own pictures, while those attending Etiquette (which, might I add, is a delightful way to spend a half hour) are the sole actors in the entire performance.
So what, now we’re shelling out to watch ourselves perform? Or is this best the way to maximise enjoyment for an audience bored with numb bums on seats?
