About Anatomy 15: Picnic at the Plague Pool

Come frolic with us on the shores of disease. Pack up your tablets, serums and therapies for a picnic by the edge of the bubbling plague pool. Bathe in the anthropocidal fungal wash. Be baptised in pestilence. Hold hands in a dance of decay while monkey grinders dribble lopsided shanties from their rusting crank organs. Take a walk down the promenade through pollution and rot. And be certain not to miss the Punch & Judy show, performed by marionettes carved from the Professor’s very own bone and tissue, dangling in a cavity in his chest. Bring a towel.

ANATOMY is a quarterly live art cabaret based in Edinburgh’s Summerhall. Our first multi-genre romp is Picnic at the Plague Pool.

Featuring astonishing work in dance, sound, costume, movement, spoken word, film and more from across the UK.

WITH Emma Ainsley & John Phillips, Nusch Bourne & Serafima Mehovich, L33 Hz & Area Known, Emma Jayne Park & Nik Paget-Tomlinson, Luna & Callum Macaskill, Chris Sav, and sweætshops.

PLUS slime and silliness from your congenial congenital hosts, Ali Maloney and Harry Josephine Giles.

AND British Sign Language interpretation throughout from Yvonne Waddell.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Anatomy 15: Picnic at the Plague Pool are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
