Growler at Edinburgh Fringe ★★★★
A witchy ritual with the Mother of God – AKA the divine feminine vagina.
Head to Summerhall’s creepy Demonstration Room for a religious experience like no other, with Growler – an envisioning of the sacred vagina! This kooky-kitsch Irish Odyssey channels Moldy Peaches style lo-fi folk energy, beautiful vocals and some poetically expressed home truths around the lived experience of women and the contemporary world.
Don’t expect to know what’s going on all the time in this experimental show, but fear not: you don’t need to get it. A supremely relaxing mood is conjured and the ritual is a beautiful thing to behold. The DIY gig elements of the show are the strongest, and there are moments when we feel transported to some strange world imagined by a hybrid of Róisín Murphy, Bjork and Sia!
From ritual drumming to beautiful wailing, Growler encourages us to feel through sound. Don’t miss this unexpected treat at Summerhall, and let out your inner Growler.
