Friday the 14th of March saw us back in Summerhall, this time providing technical support for the excellent scratch/experimental theatre night Anatomy. The night included theatrical, musical, dance and outright weird performances from Ed Crawley, Jusztina Hermann, Francesca Lacey, Manoli Moriaty & Frances Kay, Klaus Pinter, Sarah Roberts, Sara Zaltash, Scrapyard, and Voice Box Theatre.
We used some recently acquired LED fixtures to create a backdrop of striking colours to complement the variety of pieces presented as part of the “HAPPY RAINBOW RADIO FUNTIME SHOW”. Our friends over at Black Light provided UV lights for Sara Zaltash’s ‘Sex Sex Sex’, which she used to create a stunning effect for her fearless performance piece, and we rustled up some last minute Par16 Birdies for Francesca Lacey’s ‘Happiness’ – both the title of the piece and a description of what the birdies were used for.
There were too many performances to name individually, but they were all excellent. Special mention goes to the finale of the night, Ed Crawley’s ‘Death of a Double Bass’, a moving violent and unrepeatable one-off piece confronting grief and loss in a particularly visceral manner.
