The Blind Mans Song

Three recommended shows for Saturday at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

Poetry Can F*ck Off
You have just one more chance to see this show, do not miss out! Says our reviewer: “‘Poetry makes nothing happen’ said W H Auden. Spellbindingly performed with live music, this show opens with Auden’s provocative statement and proceeds to demolish it, by travelling through poetry’s intersection with politics. In my book, if you’re not going to ‘Poetry Can F*ck Off’, you can fuck off”.
Summerhall, until 22 Aug.

Blind Man’s Song (pictured)
My, this one is good. “A blind musician lets his creative power take over him and keep him company. These mime artists explore his inner needs, desires and ambitions, as his music stops, starts, and interprets the world they encompass. An absolutely entrancing creation, time accelerates as we delve into this musician’s mind”.
Pleasance Dome, until 30 Aug.

This dance piece really wowed our reviewer. It “achieves everything lesser productions hope for: I had no idea what was happening next, but I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. As well as unusual, the choreography is also precise and ambitious, while the costuming and soundtrack are both killer. This is what dance should be”.
Zoo, until 31 Aug.
