Supporting “high” art at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

We might be more accustomed to structural installations and maintenance assignments at altitude than high culture and art, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate the spectacle of performance!

That’s why, alongside our client the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, we’re delighted to be lending our support to Don Juan – a retelling of the romance of the legendary lover from multi-award winning New Zealand theatre company, A Slightly Isolated Dog.

This tongue-in-cheek adaptation sees Andrew Paterson of the five-strong cast scaling a 100ft climbing wall – in heels no less! – all in the name of love. Running until 27th August at the Assembly George Square Theatre at 1:10pm, the hour-long show is pitted as an “interactive performance party” and having seen it ourselves, we have to agree!

Led by artist director Leo Gene Peters and produced by Angela Green, the show has been extensively toured on the other side of the world, but this marks the company’s debut appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe – and we’re sure it won’t be its last. With singing, dancing and comedy aplenty, it’s a light-hearted, laughter-filled spectacle that all audience members are invited to get involved with – and revel in its chaotic brilliance.

So, if you’re heading to the festival and looking for something theatrical, silly and sordid, then make sure you don’t miss it!

Tickets are available via the Assembly or Fringe websites and you can see more from A Slightly Isolated Dog on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
