V.19 - CCFM - Antoine Gaborieau Hall 
Old God is a foppish, irreverent oracle. A singer of doom and weaver of myth. A being so old, they have forgotten their own name. Exquisitely costumed and poised before a hand-painted canvas backdrop encircled by fancy golden footlights, this white-faced clown seems to have pranced out of the theatre houses of the 1800s.
Through virtuosic pantomime and improvisational feats of language, Old God rains down a frenetic hail of words and ideas that veer wildly from the absurd and scatological, to the poignant and profound.

Old God

Splash Time—CCFM – Antoine Gaborieau Hall

I have been fortunate enough to travel to Fringe festivals across the country and around the world. Walking into a makeshift cabaret venue on the other side of town, I had made the relatively smaller trek to the CCFM. I went to witness a show that many artists had been raving about. I was expecting it to be good, but what I was given was something truly extraordinary. Old God is world class clowning; an unapologetic ripping apart of our hypocritical world in a delirious fit of hysterical, satirical, heretical idiocy. The intelligence and insight of this piece was blended perfectly with absolute absurdity and obscenity. Alec Jones-Trujillo kept the audience on its toes for the entire raucous hour with his joyful skewering. I haven’t laughed this hard at a show on the circuit in a long, long time. He deserves sell out shows and awards for the calibre of performance he brings to the stage. I may also have to cancel my Amazon subscription – for real this time.

Old God

Splash Time—CCFM – Antoine Gaborieau Hall

Absolutely packed to the gills with jokes, dancing, heretical theology, clownery, general mayhem, abuse, harassment, profanity, deep and horrific obscenity, history, crass commercialism, uncomfortable silence, murder, summary executions, genitalia, misogyny and various other grand narratives that will enrich your life. Real Fringe art, is what I’m saying. Go see it.
