ANATOMY brings back our mega carnival cyclone double bill: our regular 17+ performance variety and an ANATOMY matinee for kids aged 0-5s and their friends of all ages. How do you break the news to a toddler? How can a toddler teach you to break the news into tiny pieces? How can you play the best game of putting it back together in strange new ways?

The satyrs are braying. Half human and half goat, they sip the headlines from staticky televisions and pour their newswine up into phones and tablets. Each comic belch and teasing tail-swish reverberates across the world. Have you marked yourself safe yet? They build towering emoji monoliths to which we flock, hungry for the truth. Resistance arises, of course: ‘Which 60s revolutionary hero are you?’ You might have fifteen unread notifications right now: you’d better check.

ANATOMY is a quarterly live art cabaret based in Edinburgh’s Summerhall, featuring astonishing work in dance, sound, performance, drag, rope & more more more

WITH Cottrell & Mills, Faux Theatre, Jordan & Skinner, King Biff & Lars, and Kasia Zawadzka

PLUS headlines and hokum from your horrifying hosts, Ali Maloney and Harry Josephine Giles

AND British Sign Language interpretation throughout from Yvonne Waddell.
