Abroad

In 1999 we were approached by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to play at their Sunday event and at the, then, new "formal" High Street busking events. This we jumped at. Colin, Erika, Jenny, Ivan and Bill all were involved. On the Sunday a Large Norwegian gentleman approached us and asked if we would like to bring TRASH to Sadefjiord in Norway in 2000. He came back to see us the following day on the High Street, so we reckoned he was serious, and so he was. So in June Colin and Bill flew to Norway followed, a few days later by Erika. We spent a short but hysterical period, with our own driver and transport, gathering drums and other stuff. Working with young people from the local High school and members of the special needs organisation of which Oscar was director we put together the piece you can see here. This was filmed by Emmanuel from the Special needs organisation Shekel, based in Jerusalem. Emmanuel invited us to go to Israel the following year and put together an integrated piece for performance. March 2001 saw Bill, Alan and Jenny (a different Jenny) take off for Tel Aviv on their way to Israel. We were treated like royalty and we tried to repay this with some of the hardest work we have ever done. This film was made by Shekel and is one of our treasured memories
