All Roads Lead To Rome (Chris Dobrowolski / Escalator East to Edinburgh)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Sharing family photographs, entertaining journey footage, and a few of his great creations, Chris Dobrowolski treats his audience to a personal and entertaining story triggered by his old family car. This is live art in all its’ glory and a great introduction to the medium for those less familiar with it. Dobrowolski is comical when appropriate and reflective when necessary, while the whole of his story is fascinating to listen to and he effectively shows the roots and purpose of it. The footage Dobrowolski uses is well-edited and aesthetically pleasing to watch, though unfortunately the show does feel a little bit too longm and I couldn’t help feeling certain parts were not entirely necessary. In spite of this, Dobrowolski has, overall, created a fine performance.

Pleasance Hunt And Darton Café, until 25 Aug (except 19), 7.30pm.
