Developed only over a few days, Gary brings together a local cast to create OUTBURST commissioned specially for the festival. As groups of performers coalesce at different sites – on the promenade, in shops and on the streets – a murmuring, muttering cacophony of different songs emerge.
Fragments of advertising jingles, pop songs, nursery rhymes compete with one another until one song survives, which unifies the group who erupt in a tumultuous chorus that seems beyond the control of the performers. The performance repeatedly blossoms and dies away as the groups repeatedly and unpredictably form and disperse across the town at different times throughout the three days of the festival.
