The Edinburgh Festival
Where is Richard Demarco? The Edinburgh impresario, who has shown the work of artists from Joseph Beuys to Damien Hirst in a career which seems almost to have spanned the century, has this year reached new heights of eccentricity. He has staged works for the Edinburgh Festival in some unusual venues, but none quite as strange as the Dundee Rep.

Despite Demarco's liberal interpretation of the word Edinburgh, his characteristically poetic programming should fill out at least the Rep's front row. None other than the President of Lithuania, Vytautas Landsbergis, is giving a piano recital in Dundee at 9pm on Friday 18 August. In future years, perhaps we can look forward to John Major performing circus tricks or Slobodan Milosevic playing his harmonica.
