ED2012 Theatre Review: Remember Me (Teatro Sineglossa)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

There’s a good reason this performance is staged in Summerhall’s Black Tent. Plunged into complete darkness, the senses are immediately placed on high alert, and an increased receptiveness to sound and brief fragments of light renders this captivating piece from Sineglossa all the more striking. A series of piercing whines stress the eardrums at first, but in the second half the performance truly comes into its own. Genders are stripped and fused as human figures moving in symbiotic rhythm flicker in distant mirrors. The effect is of standing in a rectangular dream-tunnel, as a mirage morphs and flashes in the middle distance. A powerful piece of theatre that projects the living body as art, this is both evocative and beautiful.

Summerhall, 3-6, 21-26 Aug, times vary.
