Royal Croquet Club – The Menagerie, Sat Feb 14
With awe and wonderment, today I witnessed six men and two women show complete fearlessness, complete and utter trust in their partner performers and strength and ability beyond belief.
A Simple Space is brought to life with amazing skill, delicate balancing, comic timing and just a little bit of cheek – especially depending on who can skip the longest.
From balloon animals, audience clapping in time and fun with balls, this performance will have you on the edge of your seat, literally. You will be clasping your hands over your eyes so as not to witness the possible fall of any of the performers who at some stage throughout the tumbling, somersaulting, climbing and jumping, find themselves at the top of a people totem pole which has got to be almost two-storeys-tall.
There is nothing I would change about this show, the devil may care approach to ‘falling’, the trust required of the audience when asked to literally hold a performer in their hands, or the so effective yet simple lighting.
I can not recommend this show any more highly. You simply cannot afford to miss this show. Simply A-MAY-ZING !
A Simple Space continues at Royal Croquet Club – The Menagerie until Sun Mar 15.
