Providing a curated path through the wild woods of the Edinburgh Fringe, this year Made in Scotland is presenting a mini-programme of twelve theatre and dance productions selected by their panel of programmers, cultural managers and commentators.

As ever, the shows with an interdisciplinary background are of most interest to TTR – this time Caroline Bowditch’s Leaving Limbo Landing, an outdoor work (in St Andrew Square Garden) featuring twelve dancers and aerialists performing in air and water; Frozen Charlotte Productions’ Paperbelle, a piece for 2-5 year-olds that’s played out within a room made of paper with props made of paper; Catherine Wheels’ The Ballad of Pondlife McGurk, which is worth your attention on the strength of the company’s previous show, White, a Total Theatre Award-winner; and Room 2 Manoeuvre’s WATCH iT!, a ‘multi-media dance odyssey about one man’s love/hate relationship with his TV, fusing hip hop and contemporary dance, theatre, interactive film and animation’.

To get a measure of the strength of the MiS programme, take a look at TTR’s coverage of notables from last year: David Hughes Dance’s Last Orders, Lu Kemp’s One Thousand Paper Cranes, the Traverse Theatre Company’s Ten Plagues, Adrian Howells’ double-bill May I Have The Pleasure…? and The Pleasure of Being: Washing, Feeding, Holding, and Grid Iron’s What Remains.
