ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends three new physical pieces appearing for your physical viewing pleasure at Edinburgh Festival 2011.

The Lecoq trained members of Rhum & Clay Theatre offer a slightly mysterious sounding piece: a man finds himself on the run, and under constant threat from surveillance agents. Though humour is promised, so I don’t think it’s going to be all dark.
Zoo, 5 – 29 Aug, 4.15pm (5.15pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp176.

This is the latest show from Total Theatre Award nominees Idle Motion, set around the famously unexpected and violent storm of 1987. This multimedia production examines the chaos and destruction caused by the storm, and reflects on the experiences of individuals affected by it.
Zoo Roxy, 5 – 27 Aug, 4.20pm (5.20pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp176.

State Of Mind
As the title suggests, this new physical theatre piece from Z Theatre Company is all about the mind, examining the road to lunacy, apparently, and how far one can go down that road before finally being deemed insane. Sounds good.
theSpace on Niddry Street, 8 – 18 Aug, times vary, £3.00 – £5.00, fpp177.
