Bowjangles are a string quartet who can really play. They dance whilst they play. They sing whilst they play. They leap, tumble, juggle and joke whilst they play. This is their 5 star Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut On The Box! – a witty and dynamic ‘TV’ stage show, about a day in the life of a TV that’s been left switched on. These four energetic musicians parody a variety of familiar programmes, with exhilarating dance routines and rousing songs chucked in for good measure.
Meet hilarious characters such as the Despairing Newsreader, the Operatic Adulterers and the Fleet Footed Strictly Contestants, accompanied by the quartet’s flawless string playing. While their cherished violins, viola and cello serve as tennis rackets, fencing swords or merely accessories to a full Charleston routine, Bowjangles keep the action roaring and the music soaring.
