Feral (Tortoise In A Nutshell)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Before reading this, please set your mind to superlative mode, because we are dealing with an absolutely outstanding show! In a place where mixed-media meets music and puppetry, five remarkable performers create an entire world from scratch, before slowly obliterating it in front of your eyes. The level of visual accuracy is amazing and the concept is appealing because of its authenticity. The team is so creatively resourceful that I can’t even begin to imagine what they would be capable of if given limitless resources. The show is so compelling, I could have sat for hours completely emerged in the story. I eventually left desperate for more: a must see!

Summerhall, until 25 Aug (not 13, 20), 8.00pm.
