Having recently had difficulty choosing which queer cabaret night to go to in Glasgow, Gareth K Vile moves out of his comfort zone for episode nine of At the Fringe to talk clubbing with Dive's two Annabels, arch dissectors of gender norms who like to throw a party. Ruxy Cantir, one of clowndom's rising Scottish stars, visits to share some cool tips from physical theatre and beyond. And in part three Olivier Ducas, artistic co-director of La Pire Espèce, discusses his anarchic puppetry adaptation of Ubu On the Table.
