Three recommended shows to see on Friday 18 Aug…

Amy Conway’s Super Awesome World | Summerhall | 5.40pm
In what our reviewer called “an enchanting hour”, Amy Conway explores how video games can hold up a mirror to our own lives and struggles. The resulting show is “affecting, life-affirming and beautiful”.

Acéléré by Circolombia | Underbelly’s Circus Hub on The Meadows | 9.15pm (pictured)
“Circus to take your breath away!” say we. Adds our reviewer: “At times it feels utterly frenzied as they leap through the air and swirl around the stage”. This show “will absolutely blow your mind”.

Arna Spek: Museum Piece | Just The Tonic at The Caves | 12.00am
Originally from the Netherlands, Arna Spek makes “dry, self-deprecating observations about London life and odd British behaviour from the perspective of a confused and bumbling outsider”, reports our review. And it really works. “Her comic style is as fabulously quirky and awkward as her tales of medieval bananas”. Go see.
