CURIOUS CONTAGIOUS is a darkly comedic modern fairy tale genetically spliced with a surreal science film. A stressed-out Unicorn falls ill while building a giant donut shop. Meanwhile, a pair of quirky viruses search for the perfect place to replicate. As the viruses cause increasingly serious symptoms, the unicorn is forced to make a difficult choice.
★★★★★ “delightful, innovative and beautiful” -Winnipeg Free Press Created and Performed by Jessica Gabriel & Chloe Ziner (Mind of a Snail) All imagery is performed live!
The soundtrack was also created by just the two of us, you can listen to it here: https://mindofasnail.bandcamp.com/album/curious-contagious
We made this show in 2016 and toured it to a bunch of fringe festivals across Canada. We even translated it into french for FIAMS Puppetry Festival in Saguenay, Quebec.
FYI we had also planned to make our international debut of this show at Orlando Fringe! This pandemic has postponed every one of our upcoming gigs and is giving us time to go through old footage. We watched Curious Contagious recently and both laughed so hard that we decided to offer the whole thing up for public viewing. Enjoy watching the full Curious Contagious show! We love you and miss you Orlando Fringe
