The chronicles told of the time when he would be sent back to the past, to save the world through storytelling. It was only at the age of 24, when he and his dog Enoc1 were sent back in a ceremony of fanfares (which gave him a bit of an ego), that he noticed the history books’ curious lack of detail as to just 'how' the saving would be done…
Now, in Edinburgh, year 2011, he brings you The Sexy Quantum Stories.
Spend a bewitching hour following the course of an ordinary man’s life in a deftly woven tale of quantum happenchance and surreal imaginings. Music, video and recorded actors make Superbard’s pioneering style a truly groundbreaking contribution to the genre, an event that can only be experienced.
Kafka meets youtube. Douglas Adams meets Sigur Ros. This is spoken word, but not just for your ears. Storytelling brought bang up to date, Hans Christian Anderson for the internet generation, Superbard unfolds his dark whimsy in a multimedia sensory overload.
Superbard is a published writer, performer and musician living in London (Newsnight, Radio 4, Jeremy Vine Show). Resident Storyteller at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre; founder of the arts collective Tea Fuelled Ltd; successful filmscript writer, composer and producer; and man who can eat two chickens, Superbard is a Jack of all charming trades.
Featuring the voices of Thom Tuck (Penny Dreadfuls), Jay Foreman, Max and Ivan and more…
