Providing fresh perspectives on visual art, Festival Detours is a series of intimate live performances in Edinburgh’s leading galleries by stars from the worlds of music, comedy, theatre, poetry and prose. Each year we invite performers to respond in their own particular way to their favourite artworks featured in the Edinburgh Art Festival programme.
Molly Naylor is poet and playwright who tackles the trials of life with honesty, verve, disarming humour and a sharp eye for detail. In her response to the show Dieter Roth: Diaries at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Molly picks up on some of Roth's principles and relates them to her own experience and to those of her audience.
