Scatter Collective on their way back the the Workshop Theatre

The Scatter Collective are a new theatre company, with a few faces most of you would recognise. Cara, Becky & Shooee, all recent graduates, have had plenty of success recently with ‘Mapped’ (a review is below) and the good news is that they’re hoping to bring the show to the Workshop Theatre in February 2010.

Watch this space for details as we have them.

Review from Fringe review:

For you who travel on the northern line, you wore red and we brushed knees at Baker street. Is this the start of something? For the Scatter Collective this Fringe gem is the start of an exciting trip to the Camden Fringe.

Cupid meets Carrie in the ’I saw you across the tube…’column we all guiltily read, creating this collection of post-it note snapshots of those dating nightmares captured honestly and recognisably(!) The trauma of meeting ‘the one’ in London; the morning after, that awkward bumping into your ex, not to mention the dating catastrophes on the tube are presented by an excitingly talented cast.

Mapped explains the ‘What if’s and How to’s’ of mapping those spontaneous exchanges we have with strangers, through a combination of movement, witty dialogue, and clever direction. Seeing that moment where your skinny jeans (which seemed such a good idea the night before,) become a struggle to put on is just one example of the comic genius this company achieve.

The performance space of the Etcetera Theatre captures the intimacy of those fleeting moments perfectly, forcing the audience to question, whether brushing past a stranger at your visit to the Scatter Collective might be the start of true romance. Will that tall dark stranger sit next to you?

This Post-It-Note exploration of the spontaneous meetings we encounter everyday is a refreshing and exciting piece of Fringe Theatre.

Cupid meets Carrie in the ‘I saw you across the tube’ column is performed through movement, witty dialogue and with comic genius.

This piece is unsettlingly recognisable for most, and well worth a visit to the Etcetera.
