Having lunch/dinner with me means finishing half of my meal because I get full pretty fast 🙄
Edinburgh Festivals Diary - Day 11
INCREDIBLY WET flyering today! Proper downpour. The lovely Steve rescued us with a cuppa brew from Mimi’s Bakehouse and it was more than appreciated as we huddled into the dry!! We dryed off as much as we could while treating ourselves to a well-deserved lunch at Paradise Palms - the perfect escape from the dreich weather outside… but then back out into the storm to flyer for The Professor. Proper soaked!! I got to dry off in a beautiful talk at the Book Festival: Feminist Fantasy with Deirdre Sullivan & Maria Turtschaninoff… and of course I just had to buy the books too!! Next stop, The Assembly Rooms to see La Galerie. This artful array of physical theatre was fantastic! The story was charming, funny, and the talent of the performers was awe-inspiring. An amazing show all round! A quick dinner and then we were off to the Powder Room to see Mess by Kirsten Vangsness, which was beautifully brilliant. Glimpsing into her messy mind was akin to looking in the mirror, and I connected really strongly with this piece. The voices in my head were made physical as she wove out the tale of her monsters. It was eerie, energetic, and meaningful in the humour. We managed to snap a quick selfie with Kirsten afterwards, and she was so so lovely. I have huge respect for artists who will hang out in the rain just to meet their fans. A very rainy day, but also completely beautiful.
