The Independent Culture
The Shanghai Taro Butoh company returns to Edinburgh with a beautiful mime show. Brief sketches in the first half introduce us to basic images and situations - street scenes, playing in the park, animals and children imitating adults. Director Taro Shanghai stitches all these motifs together in a fluid, charming 30- minute suite. This is not the stylised Japanese performance of Kabuki or Noh; it is direct, accessible and brilliantly simple. Edinburgh Playhouse Studio, 18-22 Greenside Place (venue 59), 031-557 2590. 3pm. To 29 Aug.
