Expect the unexpected at the Scottish Arts Club. Is David Bowie an out-of-this-world star? Is Barry Humphries upside down? Will the audience have a clue? The Dada Surrealist Appreciation, Re-Enactment and Preservation Association will continue to solve the puzzle of the avant-garde, why Dada surrealism matters and what it all means. Duncan Comrie plays ‘Minted’ enthusiasm and Richard Duffy plays the doubting ‘Kidology’. The spirit of Dada goes pop. But the final decision about its meaning will be made by the audience: you decide.
