Echoes: Fringe Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Despite the relatively cloying metaphors, Acting Thru Dance create an innovative production that interweaves the disciplines of dance, physical theatre and acting. It follows a woman who reminisces on the highs and lows of her life, and her various actions and decisions are portrayed through compelling choreography that covers a variety of different dance styles. Social media is used as a platform to explore the various pathways in her life. The central character is played by four different dancers, and the role offers a diversity that showcases each individual’s talents. Supported by a decent soundtrack and interesting narrative, this is a commendable piece of physical theatre that offers something refreshingly alternative.

C aquila, 14 – 20 Aug, 2.00pm (2.45pm), £4.50 – £8.50, fpp169.
