Silent Fringe

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe begins on August 4 for the annual three-week endurance test of comedy, theatre and music.

If the Fringe can sometimes feel like the seventh circle of hell, why not go straight to the heart of darkness, with La Divina Commedia, the Dante-inspired show from Derevo, in the Assembly Big Top. Derevo's ferment of images may tend towards the macabre, but the breathtaking silent theatre company from St Petersburg always produces an infernal spectacle. Tel: 0131 226 0000 www.edfringe.com.
