Summerhall presents

[Edinburgh Fringe] Greg Sinclair: I Do, Do I

in association with The Arches

Fri 1 - Sun 24 Aug 2014 | 11.05am (50mins) | £10/£6, £6.50

How much power could you entrust in a group of children? Would you let them tell you what to wear, or compose music for you to perform? Would you let them do anything they want?

I Do, Do I is a series of Fluxus-inspired Instruction Scores written by children and performed by a man. A musical celebration of childish imagination where adult sensibilities get thrown out of the window.

Greg Sinclair is a musician and award-winning performance maker (CATS Best Production for Children and Young People 2013 – Sonata for a Man and a Boy). Greg is also winner of The Arches and Summerhall’s Autopsy Award.

As Sinclair vocalises whimsies, prances while playing cello or takes a bow after clicking a pen into its cap, there is such an ear-awakening sense of discovery the time flies by”

The Herald

“Delightful”

Press for Sonata for a Man and a Boy:

“moving… this is a story of how the pure love of music binds generations together”

The Scotsman ★★★★

“Gentle, whimsical, but nonetheless genuinely profound… it touches, with an unmawkish tenderness, on what music can open our heart and minds to”

The Herald ★★★★

“remarkable performers – disarmingly sincere and refreshingly open”

Edinburgh Reporter ★★★★
