I, Piano (Adrian Hornsby)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2019

In the unique setting of the Pianodrome, where the seating is made entirely from upcycled pianos, the only intact one sits in the centre. On closer inspection, someone is sleeping underneath the keyboard. He is the spirit of the piano, and he has lost his music, so little girl Zizi undertakes to help him get it back. Adventure ensues, their journeys represented through light puppetry and clever projection. We learn about the nature of music with the aid of various suggestions solicited from the younger members of the audience. It is a charming journey full of fabulous musicianship, riffing on various classical, er, classics. Well worth a trip beyond Fringe central to Leith: your young co-travellers will be transported further still. 

Pianodrome at The Pitt, until 11 Aug.
