Inferno (UCLU Runaround)
By Oliver Jaques | Published on Sunday 28 August 2016
Physically distorted and entwined bodies create the creatures of Hell in UCLU Runaround’s ‘Inferno’, a new adaptation of Dante Alighieri’s epic poem. Two central performers play Dante and Virgil, as they travel through the nine rings of Hell past all the horrors, created by the other six cast members through effective and imaginative physical transformations. The show, rather than having a developing narrative story, is a series of interesting interactions with the beasts, performed with great dedication and enthusiasm. The real highlight is the original score paired with live water projections, which fits perfectly with the action on stage and hugely enhances the atmosphere.
Spotlites, until 23 Aug.
