Absolut Fringe - Macnas

The show by Macnas last night was part threatre, part parade, part Halloween party, and entirely enjoyable. Fireworks and flares filling the night with red light and smoke and unexpected noise; giant puppets wandering through the crowd; dark, menacing figures moving through the darkness; haunting music; and most of all a sense of mystery and the unknown.

If the organisers of Absolute Fringe hoped for a spectacular opening show to get the festival underway, they'll have been delighted with the performance of Macnas yesterday evening. Five out of five.
