Lonely Planet review

Great fun for kids and often surprisingly moving for adults, this extraordinary mechanical theatre is located at the Trongate 103 arts centre. Originally from St Petersburg, it brings inanimate objects to life, as sculptured pieces of scrap and tiny carved figures perform humorous and tragic stories of the human spirit, set to haunting music. It's joyful, ironic theatre: inspirational one moment and macabre the next, but always colourful, clever and thought-provoking. Full performances are at 7pm Thursday and Sunday, and there are shorter daily performances (£5 with two kids free) from Wednesday to Sunday (check by phone or online for times). The gallery is also open between performances.
