ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Physical Reviews

This piece transports the audience to another world far removed from reality. A concoction of live music, visual art, dance and physical theatre, it persistently questions the relationship between God and Man. One gets the sense that meaning is deeply encrypted in this play and it is easy, at times, to be unsure of what is going on; however, the audience is so consumed by the dedicated cast and stunning visual display (which is at times a little disturbing) that a lack of linear narrative simply doesn’t matter. A well crafted piece of art, this show is for avid theatregoers who enjoy deciphering meaning for themselves.

Summerhall, 3-13 Aug, 9.00pm.
