Full-throttle live art cabaret: an unpredictable cauldron of mischievous performance, featuring everything from tactical action to bleak bouffon, from noise art to fart jokes, from opera to pop and ballet to biscuits.

After seven years of producing a wild diversity of genre-defying work in Edinburgh, gardening the grassroots for gorgeous originality, legendary local music hall outfit Anatomy, takes a cleaver to the renowned international archives to carve out juicy morsels and terrifyingly tender tastes.

Anatomy: Finest Cuts includes:

  • A wounded performance about fragility from ex-wrestler Philip Bedwell.
  • A five-clown retelling of Dracula from LARDS.
  • The destruction of Halloween toys from Yol.
  • A film about the joy of screaming from Zeynep Dagli.
  • A tangled knot of love from Ro-nin & Xian.
  • A story about an octopus from Rebecca Green.
  • Cutting commentary from hosts Ali Maloney and Harry Josephine Giles.
  • British Sign Language interpretation throughout.
