7 Day Drunk

Shallow attempt at drunken creativity

Performance artist Bryony Kimmings sets out to explore the connection between alcohol and creativity. In this she uses art made during her experiment to form the basis of a show, which, while colourful and energetic, fails to bring any original insight to the subject matter. A letter to a former alcoholic friend provides a moment of depth but ultimately the wacky costumes and bubble blowing don’t go far enough in masking a lack of real substance.

Assembly George Square, 623 3030, until 28 Aug, 8pm, £12 (£10).
