The Myth Of The Singular Moment (Jim Harbourne)

By | Published on Saturday 11 August 2018

A story of four extremely disparate characters – two humans, a whale and a photon – ‘The Myth of the Singular Moment’ is a show about choices and the multiverse, set to beautiful live folk music. Written by Jim Harbourne, who also performs with Kirsty Eila McIntyre, the show is straightforwardly staged and all the better for it. No costumes, few props – just two exceptional musicians patiently weaving their story together. The pair have terrific voices, and the moments where the music swells and they really go for it are the best in the show. It’s a very simple story, but manages a couple of genuine surprises, and you’d have to be a real stoneheart not to be moved by the end.

Summerhall, until 26 Aug.
