The Honorable East End Company presents DUSTY HORNE’S SOUND AND FURY
The most famous foley artist you’ve never heard of… Dusty Horne.
It’s 1963. The father of sound on film, Jack Foley, has inspired a generation of ‘foley artists’, pioneers upon the landscape of cinema history. Dusty Horne is not one of them.
A laugh-out-loud aural extravaganza, Dusty Horne’s Sound and Fury is a journey through the magic of sound on film. From Hitchcock masterpieces to the B-movie fare of Roger Corman, you’ll hear thunderclaps, gunshots, broken glass and breaking hearts – and if you’re lucky, a hideous shriek from the odd crab monster or two.
Watch – and even join in – as Dusty live-syncs dancing footsteps, murderous knife-slashes and creaking pirate ships with her rag-tag collection of madcap props, in a show which is bizarrely believable, innovative and triumphantly enjoyable.
Will Dusty keep her cool? What does a radioactive spider sound like? And should disaster strike and destroy her precious sound-reels (this may happen), will you, gentle audience, help to save her life’s work and salvage her foundering career?
Experience the subtle madness of this rarely-witnessed performance art, as Dusty moves like a dancer, drinks like a fish and bares her soul on her quest for artistic immortality. You’ll never listen to film the same way again…
“This is a perfect Edinburgh show… I bloody loved it!” Ellie Browning, Programming Developer at Riverside Studios
“I loved the concept, the energy, the audience participation – all so much fun” Sharon Burrell, To the Moon Productions
“Fantastic. That’s going to go down a storm in Edinburgh.” Lindsay Fraser, Fine Line Productions
To bring Dusty Horne to life, writer Frank Tamburin (Under Offer, Dave Shakespeare) and actor and co-creator Natasha Pring (The Love Project, Wraps) have studied foley techniques with Universal Sound studio and have been mentored by the fantastic, Emmy award-winning foley artist and performer Ruth Sullivan (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, Dickensian, Downton Abbey, ENO’s The Magic Flute). Directed by Katharine Rogers.
