Sensory overload

A man runs frantically on a conveyor belt headlong into unavoidable obstacles; nymph-like beauties writhe, close enough to touch, on water-covered perspex; women somersault across floating tinfoil walls bathed in an aura of multicoloured light as wind and water pound the audience.

Is it about trying to cling onto reality as you struggle through the obstacles of everyday life? Man’s need to reconnect with nature? The necessity of taking risks to achieve fulfilment or nothing at all? Standing room only and with audience interaction aplenty, this is a unique and memorable Fringe experience. (Nicola Husband)

The Black Tent, 0870 169 0100, until 1 Sep (not 20, 28), times vary, £25 (£17.50).

A mix of acrobatics, dance, theatre and club where worlds collide and senses are overloaded. All rows will get wet and dirty. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
