Manipulate Festival at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh 2nd-6th February 2010
An exhibition by AutomatomaniA and Cabaret Mechanical Theatre called Living Mechanicals.
From Birth to Death, with all the messy bits in between, automata show life as it really isn’t…predictable! The automata here function both as instructor and entertainer in a push button exhibition of classic pieces by modern makers.
Brought together by London’s Cabaret Menchanical Theatre and Scotland’s AutomatomaniA, the art of mechanism comes to life with a seductive wiggle or a physical jerk from the characters made by Paul Spooner, Matt Smith and Geoff Felix.
