First saw these guys when they came to The Fringe about 4 or 5 years ago, so extremely happy to see them back here. This is a show combining incredible athleticism, singing and Latin rhythm. Having spent 10 weeks in Colombia – a stunning country with vibrant, happy, friendly people – it is always heart-warming to see that whenever Colombians hear music, they smile and dance. That natural Latino culture and instinct is evident in this spectacular production too!
There were plenty of jaw-dropping feats whether the performers were hanging from the roof by rope, tumbling in the air on the giant see-saw, being thrown around on a pole or balancing on a massive hoop that is balanced on the forehead of one of the men! Sorry if the photos are a little blurry – taken on my iPhone and everything was happening so fast!
It is non-stop action and music and in a (justifiably) packed house. With word-of-mouth I expect many of their shows will be sell-outs and I strongly urge everyone to see it if you get the opportunity.
