‘All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun’ (Jean-Luc Godard). Witty, fun and unflinchingly provocative look at women and violence in the media, starring Orwin and an unprepared male performer.
Séance (Glen Neath and David Rosenberg) is an intense sonic performance for twenty people at a time inside a completely dark shipping container. It lasts for fifteen terrifying minutes
The alternative future for Guantanamo Bay: deckchairs, cocktails, and your feet in the sand. Performed in a secret enclave in the Summerhall basement, Last Resort takes you through the tropical haze on a unique multi-sensory package holiday.
Summerhall (Venue 26) is notably located at the east end of the Meadows park, in close proximity to George Square, The Festival Theatre.
