30 Cecil Street


  • Forest Fringe Out of the Blue Drill Hall, 36 Dalmeny Street Edinburgh, EH6 8RG United Kingdom (map)

Rare UK performances to celebrate Forest Fringe's 10th Birthday.

The final show to be performed at Forest Fringe’s old home at Bristo Place, a delicate and heartbreaking elegy for a lost and ruined theatre, 30 Cecil Street is an original piece of dance-theatre from Dan Canham of Still House (Of Riders & Running Horses, Ours Was the Fen Country). A performance of fragments of memories, of wild nights and long-disappeared communities, it evokes the life of a once-mighty building and asks what is left when a theatre closes its doors to the public?

Dan Canham raises ghosts in spine tingling dance-theatre piece, 30 Cecil Street… exquisitely crafted, thoughtful theatre.
