I Do, Do I (Greg Sinclair)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Music like you’ve never heard (or seen) it before! Greg Sinclair’s show puts the kids firmly in charge as he becomes their musical puppet, flitting between instruments and everyday objects to make music. The children conduct him from pre-recorded audio, with the silent anticipation in between soon becoming as big a part of the show as any of the sounds. The show challenges the way we think about music, how we listen to it and how we make it. A beautiful, honest, endearing performance that leaves you with a smug smile on your face. This is one of the most original pieces, I’ve seen this year, a must see for kids and grown-ups alike.

Summerhall, until 24 Aug.
