Rosie Kay Dance Company
by LYNDSAY WINSHIP for the Guardian

Rosie Kay mixes dance, theatre, music and wit in a retelling of Joseph Moncure March's 1928 poem The Wild Party, a tale of wayward behaviour, alcoholic excess, infidelity, and late-night brawls.

Nuns in knickers and a sad Slovak
by MARK MONAHAN for the Daily Telegraph

God seems as shut-off as the outside world and, as the hour progresses, the trio's rituals and behaviour spiral wildly out of control to the part apt, part amusingly-OTT accompaniment of Mozart's Requiem.

It's dryly subversive stuff, with an almost constant twinkle in its eye. The sporadic choreography is performed with gusto by the three stars (who also sing very cleanly), vigorously hinting at inner lives both bound up in and divorced from the loopy drudgery of the characters' existence.

Fringe Round-up
by DONALD HUTERA for the Times

This is a strong, although perhaps not vintage, year. One production that comes nearest to reaching that special place between head and heart is Sclavi: The Song of an Emigrant, by the Czech Republic’s Farm in the Cave International Studio. Drawing on authentic letters and fragments of polyphonic songs from Slovakia and Ukraine, a ravenously sensitive and physically electric cast of eight follows a poetic, rather than literal, plotline about the emigrant experience.

The fringe frontline: best and worst
by JOHANN HARI for the Independent

In my string of features about the Edinburgh Festival, I have given the impression that this manic eruption of comedy and dance and theatre is dedicated to stimulating the intellect. But, in its gnarled, tobacco-choked heart, it is not really about that.

I sure do dig that compost
by CLIFFORD BISHOP for the Independent

For real aesthetic compost, though - sprawling, primitive, reekingly fertile and indiscriminate - you can't better Don Quixote.
