Remember the promo for Radiohead's 'ParanOid Android’ With the weird cartoon guy.7 Well that was Robin, sometime musician and full-time slacker, whose adventures cow- tipping, killing mime artists, di'iying tight-ass neighbours to suicide are chronicled to a soundtrack of loungecore, hip hop and reggae in a new Video compilation. With dialogue like, ’When I woke up I was lying on the floor, I’d pissed my pants and it was no fun anymore', it's no surprise that Magnus Carlsson's character ended up in the Visuals for Radiol'iead’s pre-inillennial blues.

Robin is re/c-Pasecl by Fabulous Films on Mon 2/ Jul, priced [9. 99.


Trees and their relationship to people are the themes of Arborea/ Living In Trees, the new show by stilt-dance troupe Scarabeus. The Danish/French/English trio's sources for this piece include a story by Italo CaIVino in which a boy resists enVironmental destruction by IiVing in the trees and Sutherland’s Crocacli Crannali project, which aims to reinstall indigenous trees to Scotland’s north-east coast. This spectacular, outdoor performance Will have you craning your neck as the performers defy graVity on a five-metre-high set. Tarzan, eat your heart out.

Arborea/ is at the Mac'Robert Arts Centre, Stirling, Fri 24 81 Sat 25 Jul.

Something to whet your appetite for the Festival. . .
