Not easy to describe, other than to say it was a cracking show which should be one of the hottest tickets in town. It's a mix of circus and dance with a little bit of juggling and some humour added to the mix. There is no real dialogue, just music and stagecraft. The story cum theme as far as there is one is of a young Italian arriving in Soho and looking around. Starts with a dance image of commuting
and has lots of little vignettes from sitting around in Soho Square,
to seedy clubs,
to being mugged, to working in a restaurant, to working out in a gym
and being in a public convenience. All done with dance, Chinese Pole, ribbons, trapeze, acrobatics skilfully interwoven. The set was full of clever ideas. And the performers were absolutely wonderful. Especially the young chap in the main role. Not only wonderful dancers and gymnast but also fine actors.
That this isn't better known is a tribute in part to the vast number of things going on in London. But also due to the fact that it doesn't really fit neatly into a genre like say, sport, or drama, or musicals or ballet. Pity as it is just amazing and joyful.
