And Now… (plan B)
By Penelope Hervouet | Published on Friday 26 August 2016
“When you grow up you can be anything.” ‘And Now…’ is a dance and theatre piece, where adults embody children and their aspirations for the future. The performers really manage to create a sense of childlike wonder as they seem to discover the set for the first time. Between dance numbers, they play with the toys on stage and jump from chair to chair. The choreography is graceful and flows very well but is quite repetitive. Overall, the pace of this piece is quite slow, up until the closing number which is more energetic. The combination of electronic, minimalistic music with a live musician and percussionist gives a contemporary edge to this ‘Neverland’ story. A good performance but too stretched out.
Zoo Southside, until 27 Aug.
