Welcome to Summerhall. Here, in our unique home in Edinburgh’s former Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, we offer engaging, challenging, and exhilarating visual arts, theatre, dance, music, literature and education for people of all ages.

“An incredible venue”

The List

We host diverse programmes of visual and performance art throughout the year as well as events, parties, other festivals, workshops – even weddings! Summerhall also provides workspaces for artists, innovators and community organisations as well as encouraging the creation and application of new technologies in our high tech hub - the TechCube.

Summerhall is for everyone. Whether you are engaging with our exhibitions, catching the best in avant garde European theatre, grabbing something to drink in the Royal Dick bar or simply soaking up the atmosphere in our buzzy courtyard, there is something for you to explore, discover and most of all, enjoy, this Festival and all year round.

FESTIVAL

WELCOME

In 2016, our internationalism has once again been tested by a political referendum questioning the position of our country in the world. Seventy years ago in 1947 the first Edinburgh Festival was created to 'heal wounds of war through the languages of the arts’, and here at Summerhall we exist to keep faith with that mission, to explore ideas which are common to all humans with a spirit of open- minded internationalism.

The work we present offers entertainment and amusement, but we know that enjoyment of the arts is a serious business to many. At Summerhall we meet interesting and wonderful people from around the world as we participate in our shared international culture, exploring our sense of place and purpose in the world and connecting directly with one another. In our programme are artists and shows from more than 30 countries whose work touches on crime and punishment, the housing crisis, feminism, the EU, nationalism, the media and terrorism.

We’re proud of a festival programme which maintains the diversity, internationalism, risk and surprise our audiences expect, with partnership projects from Beyond Borders, Aurora Nova, Northern Stage, Big in Belgium, Rose Bruford, the Demarco European Art Foundation, Made in Scotland and Paines Plough. Once more, our year-round music programme Nothing Ever Happens Here makes Summerhall one of Edinburgh’s hubs of varied and exciting live music from across the world in August.

This year, most especially, we celebrate Joseph Beuys who worked with Richard Demarco and myself many times here in Scotland. It’s a year of anniversaries; the 30th of Beuys’ death, the 50th of the Demarco Gallery’s foundation, and the 70th Edinburgh Festival (although that anniversary officially arrives in 2017). Our Beuys/Demarco show supplements the

directly related exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. A significant figure in the artistic history of this city, Beuys’ legacy is stronger than ever and we, along with the Demarco European Art Foundation consider Summerhall to be part of that legacy.

To complement the Beuys/Demarco exhibition we present the first Scottish overview of the seminal Artist Placement Group, with which both Beuys and Demarco had strong links. The five other contemporary art exhibitions which make up the programme symbolise the importance of artists such as Beuys, Demarco and APG members in redefining the role of the artist, and their influence on contemporary practice.

We strongly advise everyone to see the Surrealism exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which is world class and the most sensational art exhibition in Scotland in recent decades.

This year we will also be showing items from the festival’s history which we hope will build towards creating an Edinburgh Festival Museum. Summerhall is a multi-arts venue, a place for interdisciplinary research and education, which is open all year round as Europe's largest private arts centre. We host and produce nearly 800 shows and events annually and receive over half a million visitors. The festival never decamps from here, we are a cultural village that in August becomes a cultural town. We hope you will be inspired and entertained by the work we’re privileged to do, and we hope your experiences here will make 2016 a year to remember.

NOISEMAKER

This year’s visual arts programme focuses on the artist as Noisemaker, looking at the artist’s role as communicator, acting at times as mediator or agitator in the imparting and exchanging of information. The arrest and subversion of sound, dialogue, gestures and text come to the fore, with installations centred on the position and tools of the artist in communicating and creating experience.

Production and position play a key role, with the exhibition Context is Half the Work. A Partial History of the Artist Placement Group emblematic of this. The first overview of this seminal group in Scotland, the exhibition explores the Artist Placement Group’s (APG) activity, with placements in industry and public organisations. They re-positioned the role of the artist, making the case that artistic practice and knowledge would no longer be confined to the studio and gallery, but could be extended to act upon societal organisation and decision-making processes.

The emergence of the APG concept took place against the backdrop of an on-going discourse about ‘dematerialisation’, moving away from an object-based understanding of the work of art towards site-specific work, social relationships and information. The APG changed the history of conceptual art and influenced many contemporary artists including Laure Prouvost, who in the past has worked closely with artists Barbara Steveni and John Latham (co-founders of the APG) as Latham’s artist-assistant. Key works from Prouvost’s practice feature in her exhibition Monolog, which uses the chemistry of written and spoken language, gesture and imagery to immerse and direct the viewer to look beyond what the installations and our lives present to us.

The questioning of cultural forms and norms comes into play within the exhibitions. Sound artists Mark Fell and Haroon Mirza present solo exhibitions which expose the expansive nature, and therefore limits, of conceptual art and installation experience. Fell’s mathematical, analytical and academic approach to producing is paired with philosophical explorations of the self in Diagramming The Listener whilst Mirza’s sculptural soundscape Adam, Eve, Others and a UFO reflects on our digital environment, engineered to generate a spatial examination of sound.

Performative activity and play continue to be central themes in Summerhall’s visual arts programme. Tamsyn Challenger returns to present her new installation Hyper Bowl. Similarly, to Prouvost, Challenger examines truth and fiction, her immersive work and one-off performance scrutinises the exaggerated, and at times, false vocabulary, used to characterise artists and their works. Duo Pester and Rossi maintain the challenging of social conventions through visual puns, using their feminist approach to examine the body, sexuality, daily rituals and interactions, responding to the cave-like Room Under The Stairs Gallery.

The programme is bookended by exhibitions paying homage to the legacy of Joseph Beuys and the Demarco Gallery, co-produced by Robert McDowell, Summerhall’s Director, and Richard Demarco, former Director of the Demarco Gallery and Director of the Demarco European Art Foundation based at Summerhall. The Demarco Gallery was at the vanguard of creating a dialogue between artists and place, through its European exploration programme, Edinburgh Arts. Demarco and Beuys had strong links to the Artist Placement Group - Barbara Steveni and John Latham were Edinburgh Arts participants, and other members exhibited as part of the Demarco Gallery exhibitions programme. In 1977 Beuys invited the APG to discuss artist-with-government placements at Documenta 6 in Kassel, bringing the group to the attention of the German government. This led to exchanges with the government, and the first international artist-with-government placement. The Beuys/Demarco exhibition highlights groups, networks and individuals, and their ground-breaking approaches, elevating interdisciplinary methodologies, paving the way for artists to continue to noise up contemporary practice.

MONOLOG

Laure Prouvost

Laure Prouvost presents a series of video works focusing on the relationship between the physical body and the spatial limits of the screen. These individual works spill and react against one another to form surreal narratives that play with truth and fiction through the interplay of her hands, voice, instructions and materials. Prouvost’s works are disorientating, yet their visceral quality and vocabulary speak of identifiable human traits, immersing the viewer in their humour and anxiety, and expressing an appetite to look beyond what the work and our lives present to us.

Instructions and prompts play a key role in Prouvost’s dialogues, and are repeated throughout the galleries. Films such as Monolog explore divergences between spoken language and written text, with the intertitles of the film becoming Sign paintings - black and white texts arrested from the screen and brought into the exhibition space - to direct the audience.

Communication is subverted whilst films such as I need to take care of my conceptual grandad, acknowledge her position as an artist. Prouvost was an assistant to the conceptual artist and former Artist Placement Group member John Latham. In the film she pays homage to Latham, who was infamous for his work with destroyed books, particularly one instance at a party in which he and his guests chewed up a copy of Clement Greenberg’s Art and Culture which they spat out, fermented and returned to St Martin’s library in a test-tube. In the film Prouvost attempts to massage body lotion into a Latham monograph in an act that is suggestive of ideas related to artistic influence and inheritance, and is both caring and destructive.

Prouvost’s non-linear threads of storytelling suggest a necessity to share and maintain an open, and at times, cynical awareness of communication in contemporary life. Yet, far more seductively, the artist offers an invitation to the viewer to assert their authority in experiencing the work, which acts as a universal symbol of the yearning for a deeper understanding of the world around us.

Laure Prouvost was born in 1978 in Croix-Lille, France. She lives and works in London, UK and Antwerp, Belgium. After receiving the 2011 Max Mara Prize for Women, Prouvost was the first French artist to win the prestigious Turner Prize (2013).

ADAM, EVE, OTHERS AND A UFO

Haroon Mirza

Haroon Mirza has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound, light waves and electric current. An advocate of interference (in the sense of electro-acoustic or radio disruption), he creates situations that purposefully cross wires. He describes his role as a composer, manipulating electricity, a live, invisible and volatile phenomenon, to make it dance to a different tune and calling on instruments as varied as household electronics, vinyl and turntables, LEDs, furniture, video footage and existing artworks to behave differently. Processes are left exposed and sounds occupy space in an unruly way, testing codes of conduct and charging the atmosphere. Mirza asks us to reconsider the perceptual distinctions between noise, sound and music, and draws into question the categorisation of cultural forms.

This installation Adam, Eve, others and A UFO was first shown in a solo exhibition at Lisson Gallery in 2013. A UFO-circuit is equipped with eight LEDs and placed in the centre of the room. From there, cables run to eight, circularly arranged, yet non- identical speakers (one branded ADAM and another EVE). The electric current that causes the short flashing, brightening or dimming of the LEDs creates different sounds, audible through speakers, which are controlled by a computer programmed by Mirza to form a minimalist electronic piece of music. The dark grey foam on the walls, which generates a recording studio atmosphere, and the carpet are used to reduce reverberations and keep the sound in the centre of the room.

Haroon Mirza was born in London in 1977, where he lives and works. His work was included in the 7th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennale, China (2012) and the 54th Venice Biennale, Italy (2011), where he was awarded the Silver Lion. He was awarded the Northern Art Prize in 2011, the DAIWA Foundation Art Prize in 2012, the Zurich Art Prize in 2013, the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize in 2014 and the Calder Art Prize in 2015.

CONTEXT IS HALF THE WORK. A PARTIAL HISTORY OF THE ARTIST PLACEMENT GROUP

Artists include Ian Breakwell, Roger Coward, Garth Evans, David Hall, John Latham, George Levantis and Barbara Steveni and others Curated by Naomi Hennig and Ulrike Jordan in dialogue with Barbara Steveni 4 Aug - 5 Oct 2016

The Artist Placement Group (APG) was founded in the UK in 1966. The group initiated and organised placements for artists within industry and public institutions where they would research and develop ideas for projects in-situ. According to the APG principle, artistic practices and knowledge no longer needed to be confined to the studio, but the reach of the artist could extend to commercial, industrial and government contexts in order to contribute to social and organisational processes at all levels.

patients (1978-79). In addition, a selection of Barbara Steveni's contextualizing video walks and interviews with women protagonists of the time will be shown.

The acclaimed exhibition curated by Naomi Hennig and Ulrike Jordan in dialogue with APG co-founder Barbara Steveni debuted at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin in 2015 (12 September – 8 November). The second iteration of the exhibition staged at Summerhall is the first Scottish exhibition giving an overview of this seminal group and related works, and is reworked in order to highlight the APG projects that took place in Scotland.

Public Engagement Programme Panel Discussion: Includes APG members Roger Coward, George Levantis, Barbara Steveni and Art Historian Dr. Jo Melvin. Screening and round table discussion: Led by Research project: Rewind Artists Video in the 70s and 80s and its archivist Adam Lockhart, and producer Anna Ridley. A seminar in four parts - I.

Context is Half the Work. A Partial History of the Artist

Placement Group explores seven paradigmatic APG placements; it includes research material, video works, art works and documentation of the group’s activity, raising questions still relevant for present day context-based artistic practices. These include sculptor Garth Evans’ two-year fellowship at the British Steel Corporation (1969-70), David

Hall's TV Interruptions, broadcast on Scottish Television in 1971, George Levantis’ journeys on the container cargo ships of Ocean Fleets Ltd (1974-75), Roger Coward’s placement with the Department of the Environment (1975) where he worked with inhabitants of a Birmingham neighbourhood, and John Latham’s association with the Scottish Office (1975-76). Negotiations with the UK Department for Health and Social Security (DHSS) led to two placements for Ian Breakwell, and other artists associated with the APG. The first took place within a psychiatric hospital (1976) and the second was an interdisciplinary APG/DHSS research project which led to the development of an audio-visual therapy method for dementia-afflicted

HYPER BOWL

Tamsyn Challenger

OMG, this ingenious brand new best-ever installation by dynamic, polymath, “artist agitator” Tamsyn Challenger will be housed in the spectacular, cavernous, intuitive basement space at our world famous venue Summerhall. A concept such as ‘Hyper Bowl’ comes around once in a lifetime and could be the greatest contemporary art work of a generation.

“I am literally dying to see the historic construction of a sculptural ‘bowl’ that holds a soup of re-fabricated text.” (Mary Beard might have said this, BBC, 2016)

The meteoric rise of hyperbole is the game and we are the players. 'Hyper Bowl' will house the most amazing live performance event of the festival on Sunday 21st Aug in which legendary poets battle it out with top comedians, writers and art critics to see who is the hyperbolic bomb. Hero, icon, poet and sought after lecturer Colin Herd will be the ring master, participants will include Elvis, Arthur Smith, Stephen Fry, Cleopatra, Brian Sewell, Gracie Fields, Joan Rivers, Dali, George Clooney, Dorothy Parker and Liza Tarbuck (some participants tbc). #RIPsubtlety

Tamsyn Challenger’s award-winning exhaustive practise has led to her being described as “the next Tracey Emin”, alongside many other young female artists.

Commercially ambiguous, her thrilling ‘outsider’ status has seen her crowd pleasing installations internationally applauded and placed in the Guardian’ s Top 5.

A journalist said of her recently that “she is the most famous, unfamous artist on

the planet right now”, adding that he wasn’t sure that he could think of that many famous visual artists. During her seminal 15 year residency in London she was the innovator behind the now celebrated and globally renowned ‘Haringey Set’. She

is one of the last artists ever to breathe the sacred ‘Bacon Air’ left circulating the

defunct Colony Rooms in Soho. A “Challenger” by name and nature, DON’T MISS THIS UNMISSABLE ARTIST WHILST SHE’S STILL ALIVE.

DIAGRAMMING THE LISTENER

Mark Fell

Mark Fell’s Installation draws from interests in geometry, time, technology and the self, and how these shape and sustain one another. With algorithmically controlled sound and light Fell’s work is both experientially direct and conceptually ambiguous, referencing cognitive neuroscience, contemporary philosophy, underground music cultures and radical politics. As with other pieces in this series, his work is not so much about its materials or meanings, but an examination of their reciprocal disturbance: how experience and the self are constructed, how understanding is both produced and inhibited.

Diagramming The Listener, Performance

Summerhall Curated, Braw Gigs and Nothing Ever Happens Here present Mark Fell, Okkyung Lee and Carl Michael von Hausswolff

17 Aug, 20:00, Dissection Room.

Fell curates an evening of sound and music performance that is dense, austere and laconic, perfectly suited to the ambience of the Dissection Room. The evening features Fell’s own productions, and solos from composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff and cellist Okkyung Lee.

Mark Fell is an artist and producer based in South Yorkshire and is half of the duo SND. Okkyung Lee is a cellist/composer/improviser based in New York, who developed her unique language by pushing and blurring the boundaries of contemporary cello and improvisation. Carl Michael von Hausswolff is an artist and composer based in Sweden, using recording technology as his main instrument.

Pester and Rossi

Grounded in sculptural performance, the duo Pester and Rossi create installations and live works that question interaction and social behaviour, challenging perceptions of the everyday. The artists incorporate outlandish DIY costumes and props, working with an anarchistic and feminist approach, responding to the conditions of their surroundings. Pester and Rossi use sculptural props, colour and performance, creating absurd gestures and humorous interventions to question the world around them and to imagine a new.

Using visual puns, irony, bawdiness and satire as devices to interpret, engage and subvert the everyday, Pester and Rossi explore the duality between their bodies, as objects, and their relationships with and to particular sites. Often building temporary structures and wearable sculpture, which they must negotiate within; the artists set themselves boundaries and limitations, examining the body, sexuality, social norms and rituals.

Ruby Pester and Nadia Rossi have been working together since graduating in 2008 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee, receiving degrees in

Fine Art and Time Based Art respectively. Pester and Rossi currently live and work in

´

Glasgow and are part of the artist group Fallope & the Tubes. They also produce and facilitate participatory projects in partnership with local arts, education and community organisations. Working site specifically, responding to locations and communities, exploring the relationship between media, artist and society.

BEUYS/

DEMARCO

Curated by Robert McDowell

Joseph Beuys, one of the great artistic geniuses of the 20th century died in 1986, forty years ago. To this day he is exhibited more than any living artist and there continue to be hundreds of exhibitions dedicated to featuring Beuys across the world.

Richard Demarco introduced Joseph Beuys and many others of the international avant garde to Scotland. 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the Demarco Gallery, an appropriate time at which to celebrate Richard Demarco and his artistic collaborations, friendships and critical dialogues through exhibitions which also acknowledge the 40th anniversary of Edinburgh Arts (exploration programme) and the 25th anniversary of the Demarco European Art Foundation, based at Summerhall.

Across the UK this year there are several exhibitions celebrating the legacy of Joseph Beuys. These include The Tate’s exhibition of sculptures and vitrines and The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art presentation of drawings,

DEMARCO GALLERY

photographs and other works highlighting the unique collaboration between Demarco and Beuys.

At Summerhall we are delighted to be extending that exhibition with much more in six Gallery rooms including hundreds of photographs, multiples, facsimiles, films and research material. Beuys’s last work in Edinburgh was The Poor House Doors – New Beginnings are in the Offing (1981) assisted by Demarco, and Scottish artists George Wyllie and Dawson Murray. The piece is now housed in the Monchengladbach's Stadtisches Museum and will be referenced in the Summerhall programme.

When in Scotland Beuys also worked closely with critic and art historian Caroline Tisdall and Robert McDowell, the founder of Summerhall. Indeed Summerhall is inspired by Joseph Beuys and Heinrich Boll’s concept of a Free International University for Creativity and Interdisciplinary Research so, in many ways, the building itself is a testament to the ideas of one of the world’s most important artists.

Tim Crouch and the Royal Court Theatre
In preparation for the film role of a
lifetime, an actor goes to extreme
lengths to dig up the truth. Her subject
is the celebrated artist, Janet Adler, who
rejected the art world in favour of a
private life.
A re-staging of the notorious Royal
Court play, this is the story of a raid – on
a house, a life and a legacy. From the
real to the unreal, fake to true and
theatre to film, the play marries Tim
Crouch’s fascination with form to a
compelling story of misappropriation
and death. Written and directed by Tim
Crouch. Co-directed by Andy Smith and
Karl James.

All In is a wild ride through vastly different worlds where everyday situations take unexpected turns into the absurd and intimate. Dictatorships, nightclubs, national anthems, education and self-help manuals in an epic journey that makes you wonder how free we are from the tyranny of

the crowd. Atresbandes bring striking visuals to their characteristic blend of physical theatre and meditative text

in a darkly playful exploration of the millennial condition.

A brand new show from the young Catalan company,

previously seen at Summerhall in Festival 2013 with Solfatara.

“ Uproariously rude and discomfiting.”

BILDRAUM

Atelier Bildraum, Big in Belgium, Richard Jordan, Kunstenwerkplaats Pianofabriek, Theatre Royal Plymouth in association with Summerhall

Architect Steve Salembier and photographer Charlotte Bouckaert use architectural models, live photography, sounds and music to take the audience on a trip between 2D and 3D. Beginning in the reality of the theatre space the journey moves through remembered and reconstructed spaces as visual storylines slowly unfold - like browsing a photo-album created on the spot. The two performers act as technicians of the imagination to compose an audiovisual story live on stage. A brilliantly original, award-winning show where the past and present seem to coincide and the audience themselves gradually develop the connections in between.

“ It is in between your ears, but above all in your imagination, that the story takes shape.”

PERFORMANCE

BEYOND PRICE

Jack Klaff

Jack Klaff performs highlights from those shows which couldn’t make it to Summerhall for this Festival. An insider’s view. We’ll commemorate some of 2016’s anniversaries. We'll see Jack as fornicating pandas, dubbed Carry On characters, a jolly but dangerous Boris Johnson, a verse-speaking Mandela and tap-dancing robots. Klaff will provide his usual visceral, hard-hitting material, along with almost illegal dollops of fun. A powerful celebration of the live art of the Theatre.

“ An object lesson in how to do a one-man show… Five stars aren’t enough.”

CRITICS

Jack Klaff

Summerhall invites leading critics and renowned practitioners to discuss the state of criticism and reviewing today. As coverage of the arts is being curtailed in all media, can online coverage meet the need for intelligent reviews of the theatre and other art forms? Are informed, experienced critics essential for artists, producers and venues to produce the most worthwhile work, reach the audiences they deserve and even keep going? An essential and timely debate during the Edinburgh Festival season. Don’t miss it.

BORDERLINES - ASYLUM MONOLOGUES

Beyond Borders Scotland & ice&fire Theatre

"This waiting for the Home Office to decide - me, I always say that it is a diplomatic form of torture … they are torturing us mentally, and that’s the worst." As part of Borderlines, a multi-arts programme engaging with issues at the heart of today’s society, Beyond Borders proudly presents ice&fire Theatre with a rehearsed reading of its new verbatim script exploring the experience of asylum seekers in Scotland. The stories follow refugees and asylum seekers on their journey across many walls and borders as they travel to our backyard - and the hurdles they continue to face once they arrive here. Each performance will be followed by a short Q&A.

PERFORMANCE
27
BLANK
Nassim Soleimanpour with Aurora Nova
Known for plays without directors, sets
and rehearsals, the acclaimed Iranian
playwright Nassim Soleimanpour takes it
to extremes in his new play Blank. Each
night the gap-riddled script is to be
completed by a new performer and a
live audience.
The play becomes a story machine to
share the life story of the playwright,
the performer and a random audience
member. Blank celebrates the
communal and elusive nature of theatre
as audience members shout, laugh,
gasp and collaborate to write the
evening’s story, a story that will never
be told in the same way ever again.
“ Wildly unpredictable
and completely
unforgettable. ”
New Zealand Herald
(on White Rabbit, Red Rabbit)

PERFORMANCE

BUBBLE SCHMEISIS

Nick Cassenbaum. Directed by Danny Braverman (Wot? No Fish!!)

Bubbemeises is Yiddish for a grandmother’s story, a tall story, an old wives’ tale. Writer and street performer Nick Cassenbaum and his musicians invite you to enjoy a bubbemeises in the warmth of the Canning Town Schvitz, East London’s last authentic bath house. Amongst the steam and ritual Nick will take you on a journey to find the place he belongs. Schlapping through summer camps, barber shops and Spurs games, will Nick find what he was looking for? Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting schmeised (washed) by old men.

Produced by Nick Cassenbaum and Robin Rayner, featuring musicians Dan Gouly, John MacNaughton, Josh Middleton & Tom Baker.

CAMILLE

Kamila Klamut

Camille Claudel was a sculptor and artist. She was also the sister of Paul Claudel and the lover, creative collaborator and muse of sculptor Auguste Rodin. After the end of her relationship with Rodin she suffered a nervous breakdown and was confined to an asylum by her brother. She spent the last 30 years of her life there. Kamila Klamut’s performance, based on fragments of Camille Claudel’s letters, explores her life and work using text, sculptural costume and live music by Ewa Pasikowska. Kamila Klamut is a co-founder of award-winning Theatr ZAR and a regular collaborator with Song of the Goat Theatre and the Grotowski Institute.

COUNTING SHEEP: A GUERRILLA FOLK OPERA

Lemon Bucket Orkestra in association with Aurora Nova

A rousing call to arms, created by Mark and Marichka Marczyk and led by guerrilla-folk party-punks Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Based on the creators' first hand experiences during the 2014 Kiev uprising, Counting Sheep invites you to lose yourself in the events that changed the course of Ukraine's history forever. Sing, march, protest, dance, eat, help, recoil, fight, laugh, cry - this is immersive theatre at its most gripping. Sung entirely in traditional Ukrainian polyphony, Counting Sheep is an electrifying exploration of human resilience.

CUNCRETE

Rachael Clerke & The Great White Males

A drag king punk gig about architecture and idealism!

A dysto-utopian noise about The Man!

A no-wave musical about how we ended up in this mess!

Hosted by washed up architect/proto-god figure Archibald Tactful (2014 IdeasTap Underbelly winner Rachael Clerke) and accompanied by anti-virtuoso punk band The Great White Males, Cuncrete is a gratuitously sleazy and joyfully noisy critique of alpha-masculinity and the built environment. Expect original music, grotesque posturing, sharp suits and cement in a concrete room.

Emballage refers to Tadeusz Kantor’s concept of wrapping, a utilitarian action taken from the most mundane reality of everyday life. This outcome of an imaginative reworking of the Richard Demarco Archive is supported by Leeds Beckett University’s PhD research programme. The piece is informed by the work of Joseph Beuys, Marina Abramovic, Rose Finn-Kelcey and Bobby Baker, while exploring Shakespeare’s Macbeth along with the autobiographical, archival narratives of the performers and the audience participants. Audience members are encouraged to participate in the performance-installation, to navigate the spaces as they wish and to share memories from their own archives.

DOUBTING THOMAS

Grassmarket Projects

Thomas McCrudden, a man with a tortured and violent past but with hope for a different future, tells his own story. It’s a complex and moving story about abandonment and the stress of being forced to take on multiple roles, in Thomas’s own words, "…none of which were me! When I was growing up, I wasn’t able to accept love, and that created not just a man without a conscience or empathy. It created a monster.”

Devised and created by multi-award winning director Jeremy Weller (6 times Edinburgh Festival Fringe First Winner) of The Grassmarket Project.

GRAEME STEPHEN’S METROPOLIS

Graeme Stephen with Zapp 4 and Tom Bancroft

Award-winning Scottish composer Graeme Stephen

presents the world premiere of his score for the 1927 silent

film Metropolis. The movie is a pioneering futuristic classic

by German auteur Fritz Lang. The screening features a live soundtrack performed by the composer, innovative string quartet ZAPP 4 and acclaimed drummer Tom Bancroft. Metropolis is Graeme Stephen’s seventh film score. His composition for FW Murnau’s Sunrise won the Innovation Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards. madeinscotlandshowcase.com

`

“ [It's] Stephen’s far-reaching guitarist-composer’s voice, now vast and scary, now dreamily delicate, now devilishly catchy, that’s making this strain of his output so enthralling.”

PERFORMANCE

HAPPY HOUR

Mauro Paccagnella & Alessandro Bernardeschi/ Wooshing Machine supported by Wallonie-Bruxelles Theatre-Danse

With their friendship and complicity spanning almost two decades, Mauro Paccagnella and Alessandro Bernardeschi meet again to dance together. Their dance takes its inspiration from Claudio Monteverdi, Bob Dylan and Italian pop music and delves into the memories of these two teenagers from 1970s Italy, born of the union of TV and infamous politics. A dance performed by two bodies of the same age, almost the same weight, with more or less the same bald patches and the same wrinkles.

“ This is postmodern, interdisciplinary dance, a slithering, minimalist and disjointed comment on the romantic excesses of the classical tradition. Irreverent, at times deliciously insane, and as sharp as it is funny.”

HOW NOT TO LIVE IN SUBURBIA

Annie Siddons

5 years ago in the middle of a shitstorm of life events, artist, single mother and committed urbanite Annie Siddons found herself living in suburbia by accident. This hilarious, honest and brutal show with films by Annie and live artist Richard deDomenici, is the story of the loneliness that ensued and Annie's earnest, but wrong footed attempts to cure it.

“ Shiningly original narrative…moving and macabre.”

HEADS UP

Kieran Hurley with Show And Tell

A city. Just like this. Right now. A woman staggers home after a two-day bender. A finance worker preaches doom outside Caffe Nero. A priest who doesn’t believe in God

stares blankly at the endless disasters on the TV news. In just one moment, all their worlds will end. Multi award- winner Kieran Hurley (Beats, Chalk Farm, Hitch), with an original sonic score by Michael John McCarthy, weaves a picture of a familiar city at its moment of destruction, asking what would we do if we found ourselves at the end of our world as we know it.

I’M DOING THIS FOR YOU

Never Mind the Noise / Haley McGee

A new performance by Haley McGee. Blending storytelling,

live art and improvisation, this show is a big romantic gesture. He’s an aspiring stand-up comedian. Today is his

birthday. The audience is her gift to him. It’s a surprise: ‘You get comedy and cake. I get to correct a mistake.’ Funny, uncomfortable and a little bit sad, I’m Doing This For You explores the extremes to which a person will go in the name

of obliterating her loneliness.

Jack A. G. Britton

A haunted solo documentary theatre performance with the gripping and

suspenseful nature of a classic ghost story. Jack tells of his return to a supernatural childhood tale and his consequent search for answers. The investigation reveals the history of a curious house on Winchester Road, the

families that lived there and a potential poltergeist interfering with an already conflicted space. As the set takes on a spectral life of its own the lines between normal and paranormal become increasingly blurred. Jack Britton is

a contemporary performance maker who uses storytelling, low-fi technology, and physicality to create contemplative and

MACBAIN

Dood Paard, Big in Belgium, Richard Jordan, Theatre Royal Plymouth in association with Summerhall

Macbeth and Kurt Cobain and Lady Macbeth and Courtney Love inspire a pitch-black comedy about unbridled ambition, hunger for power and an addiction to intoxication and ecstasy. Macbain is a triptych of hilarious interviews with the pop stars, a freaky fast-forward puppet version of Macbeth culminating in a merciless symbiosis of grunge royal couple Cobain-Love and the king and queen of Scotland. In their 22 years of creating work together, Dood Paard have forged a reputation as one of European theatre’s most ground-breaking companies.

“ A dark poem about two people tormented by fear and guilt, intoxicated by fame and lust for power, feverishly seeking solace with each other in their half-drugged state.”

Het nieuwstedelijk, Big in Belgium, Richard Jordan Productions, Theatre Royal Plymouth in association with Summerhall

A teenage girl runs away from home to the city. Nobody notices but is there

actually someone looking out for her? Belgium’s foremost graphic novel artist, Philip Parquet, and playwright/director Adriaan Van Aken’s urban adult comic book is brought vividly to life, fusing together live voices, dynamic video, projection, sound and music into a thrilling after-dark fantasia of theatre and art. Part of the Big in Belgium programme, producers of Tourniquet (2013), Looking for Paul (2014) and The Great Downhill Journey of Little Tommy (2015), you won’t want to miss this year’s late-night cult Fringe show.

Lewys Holt

What is meant by being cool? Does anything else matter? Are acronyms in? OOAAFLT mixes contemporary dance with storytelling and comedy to question what is cool these days. In this semi-autobiographical show Lewys considers which is more important to him: to be cool or to be himself. Lewys wanted to be cool for a long time but in recent years has found things that are more important to him; mostly dance.

He was one of the great men in 18th century Europe. She was one of the celebrated beauties of Georgian Edinburgh, and less than half his age. They fell in love. Edinburgh was scandalised; London was astonished; Paris was titillated. The story of the doomed relationship of David Hume and Nancy, daughter of Chief Baron of the Exchequer, Robert Ord, has been largely lost to Scottish history - until now. Kelly Burke, whose previous one woman show Zelda was a 2006 Fringe hit, unlocks the secret.

PERFORMANCE

ON THE CONDITIONS AND POSSIBILITIES OF HILLARY CLINTON TAKING ME AS HER YOUNG LOVER

Arthur Meek with Show Pony

Would the chances of Hillary Clinton winning the 2016 US Presidential election be enhanced if she took a young lover? Richard Meros BA has done the research and is here to tell us that, to save democracy from itself, Mrs Clinton needs to take a young lover - and that he’s the manifestly destined millennial for the job. He’s winning hearts and swinging voters, but time is running out. This barkingly plausible state-of-the-nation address premiered at La Mama Experimental Theatre in New York.

ONLY BONES

 

Kallo Collective in association with Aurora Nova

 

Only Bones is an award-winning new production by New Zealanders Thomas Monckton and Gemma Tweedie and Finland-based physical theatre company Kallo Collective. Only Bones uses body manipulation and bendy physicality to create an original piece of physical theatre. Its quirky low-tech aesthetic involves one performer, one technician, one light, no text, and a stage area of little more than 1m². With head-juggling and jellyfish this is a hypnotic show about a lot, using very little.

ONE HUNDRED HOMES

Yinka Kuitenbrouwer, DRIFT, Big in Belgium, Richard Jordan Productions and Theatre Royal Plymouth

Yinka Kuitenbrouwer visited more than a hundred people. She talked with them about the idea of home. With the help of snapshots, quotes and biscuits, Yinka created a new story. One Hundred Homes is an ongoing performance; each time that Yinka performs the play, she also visits people from the area, adding their stories to her archives. During her stay at the Fringe, Yinka will continue to develop the piece with Edinburgh locals, artists, and visitors. Join Yinka in her new Edinburgh home, a small wooden cabin specially built in Summerhall’s Courtyard, to experience an intimate performance.

PIANOMORPHOSIS

Will Pickvance

Part recital, part metamorphosis. Renowned Fringe virtuoso and wit, Will Pickvance (Anatomy of the Piano) returns with his trademark pianistic expression and yarn-spinning charm. Reliving encounters on pianos across the world, with improvisations that take in Bach, Fats Waller Radiohead and more, how does the spontaneous maverick make his own enduring impression?

“…the 88 key genius - half-man, half piano, [Will Pickvance] uses the piano like a ventriloquist uses their dummy or as a dressage rider uses their horse…”- Ian McMillan, BBC Radio 3

SNAKES AND GIANTS

The Flanagan Collective and Joanne Hartstone

A brand new fantastical fusion of spoken word, dance and a heavy, soulful soundtrack from the critically acclaimed, international award-winning company behind Beulah, Babylon and Fable. A nation loses itself in the crowd. A defiant love breaks all bounds. A woman dances wildly on the cliff edge. Winding together three distinct narratives, Snakes and Giants is an expansive journey, a search for our kin.

“ Stratospheric, charming, quietly anarchic.”

The Herald, on Fable

“ hauntingly sad, chillingly beautiful.”

STORIES TO TELL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

Francesca Millican-Slater

'I’ll take you through the night. Its highs, its lows. Those frustrations. Turn on the light. Look at the time. We’ll populate the long dark hours and the small light hours with stories.' Start your day with a live late night radio show for those that can't sleep, aren’t asleep. Instead of records, this DJ is spinning stories that exist between dusk and morning. Small stories, odd, true, funny and familiar, reflecting the night hours themselves.

“ Francesca Millican-Slater is the sort of charming, intelligent performer you fall in love with immediately.”

THE CASTLE BUILDER
Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet
An emotional and hard rocking journey
into the hearts and souls that exist on
the outer limits of creativity and
building regulations, The Castle Builder
tells the true story of an inmate in a
Norwegian psychiatric institute who
over 5 years built a castle on a remote
headland. The show spirals outwards
into tales of other outsider artists;
inspired to build gigantic extraordinary
structures, alone, in secret and without
artistic validation from the real world.
Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet re-imagine
these stories and tell them with visceral
live music, dancing, projection, heartfelt
storytelling and chewed bread
sculptures.

THE DWELLING PLACE

Jamie and Lewis Wardrop

Be transported into an abandoned cottage on the Outer Hebrides. Brothers Jamie and Lewis Wardrop invite you to experience their swirling surround multimedia performance, teasing out the jarring sense of absence and the loss of a profound island culture found in a humble island home. Striking live visuals, electronic sound and the words of the great highland poets in an immersive, limited capacity performance installation.

“ …reminiscent of Boards of Canada and the Radiophonic Workshop, with the hallucinatory quality of a fever dream, and yet it has a gritty sense of defiance, of survival and keeping the spirit of Old Scotland alive.”

FARCE ABOUT GROWING OLD
Inspector Sands
97 years go by in a flash. An afternoon
lasts an eternity. In a care home lounge
somewhere off the A1, Marsha Hewitt
begins the last day of her life. But she
cannot go quietly. As the radiators burn
and Jeremy Kyle blares, rivalries,
relatives and murderous impulses jostle
for space on the Axminster carpet. By
teatime, a riot is brewing. The award-
winning Inspector Sands (Hysteria, If
That’s All There Is) shine a spotlight on
how we cope or fail to cope with
ageing.

and reckless, precise

THE LADY VANISHES

Dudendance Theatre

Offsite and outdoor performance installation inspired by Victorian spirit photography and belief in the afterlife. Set in a unique location in the Scottish Borders, Dudendance’s new production is a ghostlike vision with white dressed figures emerging through the landscape around Haining House and grounds. The slow meditative pace and sculptural quality of the performance unfolds like a dream around the audience who discover different views of the performers through and into the landscape. Featuring live vocals by special guest Fiona Soe Paing. Please meet in the Summerhall foyer to take a bus at 19.00. The journey time is approximately 60 mins and you will be dropped back at Summerhall at approx 22:15.

“ Profound and poetic.”

WAVES

Alice Mary Cooper

The story of young Australian Elizabeth Moncello, the unofficial inventor of the famous butterfly stroke. Growing up on an island, Elizabeth dreams of learning to swim, but has only a school of fish, penguins and other amphibian friends to teach her. Her determination, wit and courage help her defy the tide of expectation and discover her hidden strengths. An intimate theatrical event combines highly expressive storytelling, delicate movement and splashes of humour to tell Elizabeth’s amazing tale of a life fully lived. A true delight for audiences from eight to 80. Performance in French on 24 August.

“ Enchanting … an object lesson on how the art of story-telling can transport us into another world.”

PERFORMANCE
US/THEM
BRONKS, Big in Belgium, Richard
Jordan Productions, Theatre
Royal Plymouth in association
with Summerhall
In September 2004, during a school
hostage drama in Beslan, the greatest of
evils (terrorists) chose the greatest
good (a group of children) as their
victim. Us/Them is not a
straightforward account of this terrible
drama, but is about the entirely
individual way children cope with
extreme situations. With humour and a
matter-of-fact approach, it contrasts the
views of children with those of adults.
Brussels-based BRONKS is one of
Belgium’s leading theatres for young
audiences. A lightness of story-telling,
breathtaking scenography and a strong
cast creates a thrilling theatrical
experience not to be missed.
“ …unlike what often happens
with such serious topics in
the theatre, not only were the
parents convinced, but the
children in the audience were
also wildly enthusiastic ”

EUROHOUSE

Nasi Voutsas and Bertrand Lesca, co-produced by FellSwoop Theatre

Two performers - one Greek, one French - dance and shout, cry and sing, agree and disagree, about life in the Eurohouse. A darkly comic look at the EU’s founding ideals and what got lost along the way. Made in transit between Greece and the UK.

UNDER ICE

Arturo Areimos teatras, Oskaro Kor š unovo teatras and Aurora Nova

Offering a poignant and intimate insight into the maladies of corporate life, this contemporary adaptation of Falk Richter’s famous play, by the prominent Lithuanian director Arturas Areima, represents a new generation of theatre. Distilled from more than hundred hours of research and imbued with a dark and gritty aesthetic, Under Ice is an alienating yet universal mirror of the things we run from, and the things we are. Never comfortable, always relevant. 'One of the leading and most original directors representing new voices today', says Lithuania's iconic director Oskaras Korsunovas (Fringe First award 1990).

54 PERFORMANCE
WORLD WITHOUT US
Ontroerend Goed, Arts Centre Vooruit Gent, Theatre
Royal Plymouth & Richard Jordan Productions in
association with Summerhall
We could hardly imagine it: no
mortgages, no knitting scarves, no
swimming pools, no butterfly strokes
and no honey kept in glass bowls.
Animals would no longer be stuffed,
skyscrapers no longer built, no more
suicide and no mathematics. There
would be no more talk about the old
days, about what's possible. There
would be no more words. It would
never happen. We'd find a solution. A
world without us. Multiple Fringe First
winners Ontroerend Goed return to
Edinburgh with their new solo piece
about the end of humanity and what
comes after.
Performed by Valentijn Dhaenens
(BigMouth, 2012) from 3-14 August
and Karolien De Bleser (Sirens, 2014)
from 16-28 August.
“ [World Without Us] is not only
very beautiful, it’s also a poetic
summary of Ontroerend Goed’s
body of work, always trying to
make different realities shift
into one another, to allow
fiction and reality to pervade
each other. ”

KATHRYN JOSEPH & THE ANCHORESS

Winner of the Scottish Album of the Year Award in 2015, Aberdonian singer Kathryn Joseph’s ‘bones you have thrown me and blood I’ve spilled’ is a hauntingly affecting DIY record for piano and voice. Regarded as one of Scotland's best-kept secrets, Joseph’s other-worldly vocal has earned

comparison to Joanna Newsom and Bjork, while her muse takes in love, loss, being a mother and womanhood in the 21st century. Support comes from hotly-tipped Welsh multi-instrumentalist The Anchoress, aka Catherine AD, whose acclaimed debut album ‘Confessions of a Romance Novelist’ has seen her praised by Manic Street Preachers and Peter Gabriel, and asked to support Simple Minds at arenas across Europe.

Soulsville is Edinburgh's home of deep funk, latin rhythms and rugged blues, a one-stop-shop for those who have an ear for a groove and a desire to dance into the wee hours.

Body movement essential…partner optional. Intercontinental Tropical vibrations incoming!

RACHEL SERMANNI AND MATT NORRIS AND THE MOON

Hailing from Carrbridge in Strathspey, young singer, musician and songwriter Rachel Sermanni is an enduring and unmissable presence on the Scottish music scene, marking out her own alternative folk territory. Stripped down and acoustic, the better to hear the richness and maturity of her voice, her live show has been honed by hundreds of nights onstage. A sometime support act to Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello and Rumer, she has released two studio albums, including last year’s ‘Tied to the Moon’, one live album (recorded in the Yukon, only 100 miles south of the Arctic circle) and a handful of EPs. Support comes from the Edinburgh-based folk group Matt Norris and the Moon.

WILLIS EARL BEAL & MYLES MANLEY

“I turned myself into a myth as a survival mechanism,” enigmatic bluesman Willis Earl Beal once told the Guardian. It’s no pose; eschewing fame, he grew up in Chicago, was court-martialled out of the army, became homeless, went on X-Factor in the US, bounced himself out of it fairly quickly, and hates the machinery of being ‘famous’. As evidenced by last year’s most recent album ‘Nocturnes’, his rich, open-hearted blues and soul is sometimes born of hard times, but never less than unfailingly honest. Dublin’s Myles Manley plays arch indie-pop in support.
