By | Published on Monday 21 August 2023

CMU’s sister media ThreeWeeks is currently covering the Edinburgh Festival, the world’s biggest cultural event, which takes over the Scottish capital for three weeks with a packed programme of comedy, theatre, music, musicals, dance, cabaret, spoken word and a whole lot more.

Here in the CMU Daily we are picking out some of the highlights of this year’s coverage. That includes recent editions of the TW:Talks podcast, which sees CMU’s Chris Cooke chatting to people performing at the Festival.

Today singer, comedian and TikToker Chelsea Hart talking about their show ‘Damet Garm: How I Joined A Revolution’.

Says the show’s blurb: “Drawing inspiration from the ongoing Iranian revolution, TikToker turned unexpected voice against the IRGC, Chelsea, explores contrasts between the ground in Iran, and our own increasingly polarised political climate in the West”.
