Award winning Perth cabaret crooner Tomás Ford will present his one-man musical spy thriller Tomás Ford’s CHASE! as part of this years’ Fringe World. Telling the noirish story of a terrible assassin traveling the world on an epic manhunt, he slowly realises that he might be the one being hunted.
Already an audience and critical hit in Edinburgh, Melbourne, Prague and Subiaco in its original incarnation, the show has been thoroughly redeveloped as part of an artist-in-residence program at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre. Featuring a completely new script, arrangements and video projections and directed by Levon J Polinelli (best known for the irreverent Blue Room hit Werewolf Priest!), Tomás says this version of the show is now “tighter, more edge-of-your-seat and full of even more of my stupidity”.
The show is also rolling out as a web series and album on Facebook and YouTube, with the first episode online in time for the start of Fringe World. Building on the international success of his other shows including the smash Crap Music Rave Party, after the fringe the show will tour to New Zealand, the UK and Europe. He’s also in talks to present it for the surprise audience he has recently found in Malaysia.
Tomás Ford’s Chase is on now (February 14-19) at the Noodle Palace, Northbridge. Tickets and full mission details, should you choose to accept them, are available from http://www.fringeworld.com.au.
