(Reviewed by John Glennie)
A unique blend of dance, fusion and physical theatre! It combines energy and rhythm with captivating scenes of fluidity, elegance and grace.
These six young athletes (4 girls and 2 guys) move through each performance seamlessly. There is a lot of dancing – hip-hop, break dancing and pop – but enough physical theatrics to not classify it as a dance show. They incorporate subtle humour to entertain the audience along with excellent, appropriate music.
One of the girls is amazingly flexible and reminds me a bit of the contortionist in Cirque Africa (which is some feat!). There is one mesmerising act where three of the girls are cavorting together with stunning scenes of acrobatics, flexibility, strength and a lot of trust! While hard to pick a favourite part of the show, that would be the one for me.
I highly recommend this show as a MUST SEE – but hurry, there are only three more nights left with the final show on the 28th.
