Hidden gems at the Camden Fringe Festival

This year’s Camden Fringe Festival has a jam-packed programme of new work, but with everything from chat shows to experimental sound pieces, it can be hard to know where to begin. Here are a handful of lesser known gems to help you on your way...

Theatre
AI and sex combine with scarily plausible results in Peter Miloshevski’s solo show ​The Passion according to BIBI​ ​(2-3 August, The Cockpit) while a man is taunted by a crab as he recovers from a breakup in the comically surreal ​Crabmeat​ ​(6-11 August, Tristan Bates Theatre).

Music
Never a festival to shy away from the unknown - if you're into multidisciplinary work, sound piece [whalesong] (1-4 August) at The Monkey House, described as ‘an absurd cross-arts performance about noise in the oceans', could be right up your street.

Comedy
Six girl scouts battle six aliens in Girl Scouts vs Aliens (31 Jul-1 Aug, Etcetera Theatre) - what more could you want? Highlights at The Albany include Holly Burn’s WIP show ​Gurn​ (2,3, 17 August), as well as chat show ​Next Best Thing on Next Best Thing​ ​(16-17 August) - which we’ve heard is the next best thing?

Spoken Word
Get your dose of nostalgia with this year's spoken word programme. Described as ‘a magician with words and images’, award-winning writer and storyteller Cathianne Hall’s new spoken word show ​The Famous 45​ (20-22 August) is about adopting a child from 1945. Old meets (relatively) new in ​Super Hamlet 64​ (17-18 August, The Cockpit), a fast-paced telling the tragedy this time with retro animation and gaming.

Dance
TobylikesMILK are back at Camden this year with new work, and with new friends; Faye Revlon & Hannah Milan, Haus of Anxiety, B-hybrid and The Yonis join them in ​The Alternative Dairy Experience​ ​(24-25 August, The Cockpit) to explore how the LGBTQ+ community has helped people to find their identities.
