The Uncanny Valley (Superbolt Theatre)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

A futuristic and spectacularly intelligent piece of theatre, that combines puppetry, powerful movement and truly engaging acting. The endearing and loveable meteorologist Wilson, played by Frode Gjerløw, falls in love with a robot, something the outside world can never understand. Gjerløw perfectly captures the movement, facial expressions and emotions of a cripplingly awkward but staggeringly kind man. Honestly some of the best stage acting I have seen in years; the trio as a whole are impeccably polished and confident in their movements. It is a funny, heart-warming and intriguing show, one that is so perfectly formed it leaves the audience in awe. If you see one piece of theatre at the Fringe this year, choose ‘The Uncanny Valley’.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug (not 12), 12.25pm.
