Three To See on 29 Aug: Edmund The Learned Pig, The Remnants, Going Viral

The Remnants

Three recommended shows for Friday at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

Edmund The Learned Pig
Say we: “The design is all dusty, faded glamour which, combined with aerial silk work and music by the Tiger Lillies’ Martyn Jacques, really puts the spectacular into this super, sometimes very silly, show. The play also beautifully integrates British Sign Language, the bilingual actors translating when other characters are talking”.
Summerhall, until 30 Aug.

The Remnants – As Thyself
‘The Remnants’ is a double bill presented by Shrapnel Theatre and both halves are recommended, though this one just edges ahead. “An incredibly well written and disjointed story, interwoven with poetry, dance pieces, and brilliant acting, has taken an age old, reoccurring theme, and told it in an accessible and modern way”.
C nova, until 31 Aug.

Going Viral
We love this show. Says our reviewer: “The intimate storytelling by Daniel Bye makes the audience feel completely involved and welcome in this story. Raw, real and emotive, this visceral performance both educates us scientifically and makes us question the social systems around us”.
Summerhall, until 30 Aug.
