Bowjangles: Dracula in Space is an cheeky, genre-spanning string quartet group that delivers a whimsical and hilarious experience. Reimagined classical music meets physical theatre and storytelling with slick vocal and instrument harmonies.
The musicians are true rockstars, excelling in singing, playing instruments, comedy, and stage presence. Their slick and well-oiled performance captivates the audience from the very start, and they own the stage with confidence.
Bowjangles: Dracula in Space is filled with inside jokes that will tickle the funny bone of musicians and music lovers alike. It has a vibe reminiscent of the classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, embracing its self-awareness as a Fringe show.
The pun-filled humour and shameless merchandise and review plugs only add to the charm of this talented quartet. Their camaraderie and seamless teamwork, honed over 15 years of playing together, are evident in the way they effortlessly interact on stage. What truly sets Bowjangles: Dracula in Space apart is how they refuse to take themselves too seriously, ensuring everyone in the audience has an absolute blast. Their sheer joy and fun with each other are infectious and make for a unique experience that will leave you with a smile on your face and the lasting lesson to ‘always trust women and viola players’.
