LONG Johns, a video projector and a TV. All are worn by performers Selina Papoutseli and Mamoru Iriguchi in what is arguably one of the most unusual, yet imaginative offerings at this year’s Fringe.

Projector/Conjector, at Summerhall, is inspired by Swan Lake and Star Wars and fuses dance, multi-media and theatre as the duo take their audience on a journey of love, jealousy and melodrama.

Described as a surrealist science-fiction love story, Papoutseli (Projector) and Iriguchi (Conjector) perform with the projector and TV attached to their heads.

Kitted out in a swaying white dress and an Apollo astronaut suit, the pair drag lengthy power and data cables around behind them as they project images around the room.

Physical theatre doesn’t get more experimental than this, but then isn’t that what the Fringe is all about?

Projector/Conjector, Summerhall. until 24 August, 9.30pm, £8, 0131-226 0000
