Where The White Stops (ANTLER Theatre)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

You have to be hardy, strong and most of all, have your wits about you, to survive the White: the bewildering, blustering space of endless emptiness, beyond where no man has gone. Thankfully, Antler Theatre have all the necessary vigour and striking ingenuity in hand. A rugged, minimalist production of saucepans and handmade tools, shaggy fur coats and woollen hats, ‘Where the White Stops’ is a playful and fantastically physical production, that batters you, like a blizzard, with minute after minute of innovative and hearty storytelling. Both warmingly emotive and chilling with danger and a mind-bending sense of the unknown, littered with transportive sounds and headily imaginative stories, ‘Where the White Stops’ treads into the territory of truly exceptional theatre.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug, 2.40pm.
