James Alexander McKenzie: JEST FEST

Sett Studios

Availing themselves of the poetically performative month of August in Edinburgh, Sett Studios presents JEST FEST: two absurdist comedy performance art pieces at sunrise from ‘Jimmy Mack the Shapeshifting Jester’.

Jimmy’s cross-disciplinary motley crew of alter egos perform spoken word characterised by parody, absurdity, self-absorption, meta-theatrical devices, Edinburgh-locality, and a relationship with art.


Saturday 10 August, 5.35am
The Scotsman Steps

Saturday 24 August, 6.02am
The National Monument, Calton Hill

With support from Settlement Projects.
