Presented by ME ME ME
Armed with only tin-foil props, existential dread and their sweet-ish dance moves, Me Me Me create a lo-fi opus as ambitious in scope as it is low in budget. A space adventure, drifting in the expanse between theatre and comedy, it follows two identical clones who waken a spaceship full of others (the audience). They set about recreating the scene of their birth, recounting the long, dark history of the spaceship in which they are bound for eternity, and trying to impersonate the enigmatic billionaire entrepreneur Don Solus, from whom they all originated.
Occasionally poignant, often dark but mainly silly, Clonely is a mixture of theatre, sketch comedy and audience interaction that blends into a surreal and anarchic hour. Me Me Me poke fun at the avant garde, the science fiction genre and themselves all whilst engaging the audience in singing, balloons, and Oreos.
“Chatfield and Hammond are gifted physical comedians, conveying multitudes with a fixed grin and a flick of the eyes… A glorious success ★★★★“ – The Scotsman
About the company
Me Me Me are actor-clown Charlie Hammond and writer-performer Jasmine Chatfield. In 2017, Jasmine and Charlie set out to make the kind of theatre-comedy gap-bridging work they want to see on stage and that risk-taking audiences eager for weird, surprising live art will be enthralled by. Clonely is their first show. It previewed at the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival before premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
