Third Eye Centre, Glasgow, Sat 8 July. Sculptor Chris Biddlecombe and dancers Jane Scott Barrett and Tomas Kampe first worked together as Artful Assemblage at the Traverse Theatre in March. The three have collaborated with a deliberate disregard for the barriers between artistic disciplines. Their new piece. Furniture For Satirical Lovers, follows an ingenious logic. Inspired by Plato’s panegyric to love, it is all about coming to terms with the corporeal, from a broken illusion of Edenic love. In a whirling and energetic performance the objects become a force to be negotiated bodily. (Jo Roe)
