Theatre: Edinburgh Playhouse. Based on the award-winning DreamWorks animation film, Shrek the Musical is this year’s must-see show for all the family. Join the unlikely hero and his loyal pal Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire-breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you've got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around!
Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I'm a Believer, Shrek the Musical brings all the much-loved characters to life, live on stage, in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza. Join the adventure. Recommended for ages 5+.
Exhibition: 27 June - 18 October 2015
A major summer exhibition of new work made specially for The Fruitmarket Gallery by Phyllida Barlow, one of the international art world’s brightest stars. Born in Newcastle in 1944, and with a career spanning 5 decades, Barlow is known for monumental sculpture made from simple materials such as plywood, cardboard, fabric, plaster, paint and plastic. Physically impressive and materially insistent, her sculptures are inspired by the outside world, and with the experience of living and looking.
Barlow's exhibition sets out, in her own words, to ‘turn the gallery upside down’. A new series of large sculptures engulf the gallery in art, spilling from the upper gallery over the staircase and into the ground floor, enticing the visitor from the street and into a new world.
A major monograph is being produced to mark this exhibition. Phyllida Barlow: Sculpture 1963–2015, written by Frances Morris, Director of Collection, International Art at Tate, offers an indispensible resource on the practice of this important British sculptor.
