Sandy and went to Katri Walker's 'North West' exhibition opening, on Saturday 6th August, at the Old Ambulance Depot in Brunswick Street, Edinburgh - Aberdeen's Peacock Visual Arts presence at the Edinburgh Arts Festival. The exhibition includes two video installations - very much worth a visit. It was a great festive event - in the rain too.
Also went to actor and writer Mike Maran's one person show at Valvona and Croalla's, Venue 67, on Elm Row, Edinburgh. We are fans of Mike's work and we have seen several of his productions, ranging from Captain Corelli's Mandolin to a Life of Mahler. This time we saw his take on R D Laing - a two hour tour-de-force full of a deep understanding of Laing's life and work and very, very funny. Well worth the price of the ticket, bringing with it the opportunity to pass through one of the finest delicatessens anywhere, to get to the theatre space.
