Creative Chaos

Scotland’s mighty collective, the Poorboy Playroom, are bringing a creative flurry to this year’s Fringe. The popular posse, best known for their multi-sensory site specific improvisations, are heading indoors to occupy space in the National Museum of Scotland this month. ‘Satellite’ collaborations will also take place in empty shop units in Princes Mall and Edinburgh College of Art.

The last Poorboy Playroom project took place in April this year at Cove Park just outside Glasgow and produced a successful multi-sensory mix of music and movement, with puppets, installations, slide shows, singing and site-specific improvisation.

Artistic director Sandy Thomson, said of the project: ‘If you get the right folk together, great stuff happens.’
