Friday 14th December
7.30 – 11pm
Summerhall, Edinburgh

Following on from the sell-out successes of of ANATOMY #1 and #2, we are delighted to announce our return to a more regular spot. ANATOMY #3: PANTOMIME FOR THE END OF TIME is the first in a regular year-round programme of our spectacular performance variety.

A contemporary take on the music hall variety show, ANATOMY is a platform for performance artists of all disciplines. Beyond scratch, it creates a stage for risk-taking performance and breath-taking theatrics in Edinburgh’s exciting new multi-arts venue, Summerhall, within a historic anatomy lecture theatre.

stuff and nonsense from your host bodies, Ali Maloney and Harry Giles!

an array of performance, film, songs and peculiar happenings from this edition’s fabulous artists!


Oli Benton

A short film about walking.


I’ll Be Home for Christmas: A Suicide Note
Victoria Bianchi

The end of the world is coming, and Victoria doesn’t fancy sticking around to watch. So she’s launching a pre-emptive strike…


The Snow Queen (interlude song)
Eddy Dreadnought

A solo performance and communal comic song on ice, snow andd mortality. An excerpt from a fictitious pantomime version of Andersen’s ‘The Snow Queen’, this singalong will substitute ambiguity for jauntiness, and the oblivion of ice and snow for the jolly words pointed out on screen


The Blood that Binds
Laura Edwards and Calum MacAskill, with Janine Fern

Three people, deeply connected, come apart and writhe again. Their own journeys pull them back to home. We never lose contact. The blood binds.


Scheduling Spontaneity
Rebecca Green

Love letters and kisses by commission.  Scheduling Spontaneity  is an ongoing project by the artist Rebecca Green in scheduling spontaneity.


Walk the Line / The Deadwood Stage
Charlie Murphy and friends

A whole new breed of pantomime pony – to perform a series of guerilla dressage acts. Responding to formal equestrian disciplines and traditional British pageantry, these eccentric, home-made ponies turn some playful tricks and turns in some unusual places.


The Man in the Dress and The Principal Female Boy
Greg Sinclair

A musical diptych on gender confusion in pantomime for voice and cello, featuring the pathos-filled ballad of the pantomime dame, and a rousing feminist anthem from a the leading lady whose role has been given to – gasp! – a man.


Moreno Solinas

A performance for body and voice. Love and sex, need and fear, spirit and fluid. Entertains the audience with song and performance, then sets them a challenge they weren’t expecting.


JL Williams and James Iremonger

Opul is poetry and music. Opul likes it when Squarepusher says, “What the fuck is the point of doing anything else? You know, you’re an artist.  It’s like, your responsibility is to experiment.”


To Elucidate
Jamie Wardrop and Rebecca Morris

Two performers dissect the absurdities of social politics, offering up their own bodies as powerful physical manifestations of anxiety to the scrutiny of the spectator.
