Edinburgh Festival Fringe

As the Edinburgh Festival Fringe draws ever closer, we thought we'd share our pick of the shows featuring artists who have participated in our development programmes:

Hanna Tuulikki was the first recipient of Magnetic North’s Artist Attachment award. She used the time and money to research a cross-artform project investigating the mimesis of deer in dance across different cultures. The resulting audio visual installation and visual score print works will be premiered as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival.
Hanna Tuulikki: Deer Dancer, 26 July – 5 October, Edinburgh Printmakers

During Rough Mix in Auckland we enjoyed meeting and working with some fantastic artists based in New Zealand. Two of them will be presenting their work as part of the Summerhall programme at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe:
Julia Croft, Working On My Night Moves, 31 July-25 August, Summerhall
Anya Tate-Manning, My Best Dead Friend, 31 July-25 August, Summerhall
And another, Sacha Copland, has not one, but two shows with her company Java Dance Theatre as part of the Assembly lineup:
Chocolate, 1-24 August, Assembly Rooms
Back of the Bus, 2-25 August, on an actual bus!

Matthew Whiteside took part in Rough Mix 2016 and Magnetic North has since supported his collaboration with fellow Rough Mixer Marisa Zanotti: We Are All Made of Stars. Matthew is a composer and musician who also curates The Night With… a series of contemporary music concerts in unusual spaces. The Night With… is coming to this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, supported by the Made in Scotland programme.
Matthew Whiteside, The Night With…, 13-20 August, Various venues

Karl Jay Lewin took part in Rough Mix 2017 and will be presenting his work at Summerhall as part of the British Council showcase. Described by The Guardian as a Dadaist riposte to Strictly Come Dancing, Extremely Pedestrian Chorales has a short run at the end of the Fringe at Summerhall.
Karl Jay Lewin, Extremely Pedestrian Chorales, 20-25 August, Summerhall

Jamie Wardrop took part in Rough Mix 2012 as an emerging artist. He’s since developed an extensive practice as a theatre-maker, composer and videographer. Jamie has created the video design for Harry Josephine Giles’ new piece Drone, about anxiety and technology, which is showing at Summerhall as part of the Made in Scotland programme.
Jamie Wardrop, Drone, 31 Jul, 2-17 August, Summerhall

Caitlin Skinner took part in Rough Mix 2017. She collaborates with Melanie Jordan as Jordan and Skinner, and they premiere a new piece at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, in association with the Pleasance. A Brief History of the Fragile Male Ego is a riotous performance lecture that cuts to the heart of gender politics.
Caitlin Skinner, A Brief History of the Fragile Male Ego, 31 Jul, 1-26 August,  Pleasance.

Very much enjoyed your show at the Brunton Theatre last night and the silent walk to start was an excellent addition, creating the perfect atmosphere....
