360 All Stars (Onyx Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2018

I think I just died, and went to a 13-year-old skater kid’s urban video game heaven. Inspired by street culture, this circus features world champion breakdancers, a two-time world champion BMX flatlander, basketball freestyling, beatboxing and a roue cyr artist. Imagine the energy of 50 incredibly active children harnessed into actual talents, presented within a tightly choreographed talent show for extraordinarily skilled show-offs, against a pretty psychedelic backdrop of video game visuals. An electrically charged, flawlessly choreographed and energising experience, great for families or anybody that regrets leaving their skater champion dreams behind. The 360 All Stars are the cool kids I aspired to be like back in my hardcore Avril Lavigne fangirl phase.

Assembly Hall, until 27 Aug.
