    Al Seed

    Inspired by the Faust legend, Edward Gorey and the myth surrounding blues guitarist, Robert Johnson, Al Seed resurrects his on-stage alter ego, The Fooligan, to present The Bridges of Madness - the world’s first 18th century, jazz-blues band - comprising of renowned musicians Emma Smith, David Paul Jones and Davide Rinaldi.

    Through songs, poems, soundscape, movement, dance (in the broadest sense) and storytelling, the audience is taken on a hilarious theatrical journey, playfully exploring themes of mortality, the supernatural and the nature of evil.

    The show is a development of Al Seed’s Herald Angel award-winning solo show The Fooligan (2008).
