100-Word Fringe: “New Art Club: Quiet Act Of Destruction” at Assembly George Square

New Art Club need to see their own show. Which is obviously impossible because of artistic attachment and, of course, those pesky laws of physics. You see, there’s something so good here – an audience interactive battle between two villages, dividing the crowd and initiating bread fights, pancake chases, and a tug-of-war which actually exited the building. But the show is far from tight, and interspersed with meandering half-sketches and stories with no clear goal in sight. When the game is afoot, the show soars – but when it isn’t, it dips heavily, and exposes a lack of artistic control.

New Art Club: Quiet Act Of Destruction is playing at Assembly George Square until August 28th.

Tickets: £12 (£11)
