TIM CARLSEN: CREATING MOKO
As soon as I heard about 'One Day Moko' I was intrigued by the sound of it. It's a one person interactive multimedia show, with the character of a homeless person centre stage.

It's been quite a few years in development already in the hands of its talented creator, New Zealand-based performer and Edinburgh first timer Tim Carlsen, so it's probably reasonable to expect pretty good things. With that in mind, we orchestrated a quick chat. Read the interview here.

'One Day Moko' is on at Gilded Balloon Teviot from 3-29 Aug.



YIANNI AGISILAOU: THE SIMPSONS IS BASICALLY ESPERANTO... AND HERE IS WHY
ThreeWeeks Editors' Award winner Yianni Agisilaou - whose show this year declares that 'The Simpsons Taught Me Everything I Know' - reckons that if you can just get yourself fluent in all things 'Simpsons' you'll have an eternal bond with millions of fellow devotees all over the world. Because 'The Simpsons' is basically Esperanto. Read Yianni Agisilaou's exclusive column here.

Yianni Agisilaou is performing 'The Simpsons Taught Me Everything I Know' as part of PBH's Free Fringe at the Voodoo Rooms from 6-28 Aug.

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends shows at this year's Edinburgh Festival, in handy sets of three.

THREE OPERAS >>

Norma | Festival Theatre | 5-9 Aug (pictured)
This seasoned and award winning production has already been acclaimed throughout Europe since it was first performed at the Salzburg Whitsun Festival in 2013, so you know you can expect something pretty special with this, opera fans. A great cast, headed by the renowned and sought-after Cecilia Bartoli, perform this powerful tale of love and betrayal.

The Snow Child | Paradise In Augustines | 22-26 Aug
This new chamber opera from young composer Owain Park is an adaptation of Angela Carter's (very) short story of the same name, so you know you can expect something pretty dark and tragic, but that's rather par for the course with opera, isn't it? The music for this has been praised for successfully evoking the sense of a frozen, barren landscape, so it looks as though Park might be one to watch.

A Medley Of Four Dreams Of Linchuan | New Town Theatre | 11-16 Aug
The listing for this warns that it is performed in mandarin with English subtitles, but how often can you understand the language of opera anyway? It's based on scenes from 'Four Dreams Of Linchuan' by China's most celebrated playwright, Tang Xianzu, and is performed by the very well established Jiangxi Ganju Opera Troupe, who've been around since 1953.

THREE US COMEDY IMPORTS>>

Ever Mainard - Let Me Be Your Main Man | Gilded Balloon Teviot | 4-28 Aug
The great thing about going to see American comedians is that they've usually been honing their act for years over in the States, completely unknown to most of us over here, which means they are all really good by the time they make it to Edinburgh. I am expecting this to be the case for Ever Mainard, who brings her debut show to the Festival, and tackles gender identity, modern feminism, and mad stories from her youth growing up in Texas.

Liz Miele - Mind Over Melee | Underbelly Cowgate | 4-28 Aug
I have heard lots of things about this particular young comedian, and it's all good. She's exploring the darker side of her own life - struggles with her physical health, mental illness in her family, dating, traveling through Europe alone and coming to grips with getting older and being an adult - joking about being an anxiety ridden American and trying to make sense of life.

Chris Gethard - Career Suicide | Pleasance Dome | 3-29 Aug
Depressing title, but cheerful subject matter. Oh, hang on, no, he's talking about suicide, depression and alcoholism. But it will be very funny, honest and raw, and let's face it, this guy has been in 'Broad City', 'The Office', 'Parks And Recreation' and his own cult hit 'The Chris Gethard Show', so with a CV like that, I feel pretty confident that he will deliver.
