The Prophecy: Fringe Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Irish and contemporary choreography are fused together in this exciting production from Leith based company, Siamsoir. The fantastical tale, which combines dance and theatrical storytelling, provides an innovative portrayal of the art form, and doesn’t disappoint. With impressive performances from the leading dancers – Aaron Jeffrey in particular, whose suppleness and fluidity allows for a somewhat hypnotic experience – it is clear that its choreography has been well thought out. It isn’t without its faults though, as less confident performers whose lack of conviction in their movements doesn’t allow for the seamless transition from one step to the next, creates a static atmosphere; but this is a small price to pay for what is otherwise a highly magical and enjoyable show.

C, 13 – 29 Aug, 12.05pm (12.55pm), £4.50 – £9.50, fpp175.
