I arrived in Edinburgh last Saturday (12th. August) and my first job has been looking around Chalmers St. to see where am I going to live these days. Believe me, Edinburgh is a theatre stage with all comediants trying to show the best of their performances.
Wherever I go the Edinburgh castle is watching, magnificient and a little bit frightening.
Besides two or three street theatre shows he have seen like Renes Mazing making things to dis Appearing nightly and the 12 Cabare, a modern queer version of Shakespeare s 12 night, we ended up going to a performance of the Spitfire Company in association with the Zoo Venues, part of Czech Showcase, called The Narrator, one woman show very energetic, a piece of physical theatre performed by Cecile Da Costa.
Breaking bricks with a hammer, Da costa presented a story about secrets, about unspeakable truth, about being a woman, a mother, and counting every possible thing. Extreme physical strain sometimes difficult to understand and very personal.
