So there’s these three Lithuanians, all in hiding, wrapped up in colourful velvet tubes pretending to be fruit. OK, so that sounds more like a weak Daily Mail standfirst. But, every lunchtime in a Southside church basement, it’s totally happening, man. My small co-reviewer was mostly busy trying to find a comfy bit of the actual performance area to snooze on, so I’m on my own here. Three dancers use the puzzle pieces, and a lot of floor work, to do interactive cavorting around with wee folk, who appeared to mostly love it. At the end, they all got to rock onto the dance floor and knock merry hell out of the props, all of which appeared entirely satisfactory.

Zoo, until 20 Aug.
