Angel Monster (Phluxus2 Dance Collective And Cluster Arts)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2022

Scared, mesmerised and moved are all things I felt during this hour. ‘Angel Monster’ is an immersive dance piece that deals with heavy themes like consent and female empowerment in a uniquely expressive way, and uses audience interaction to successfully create an immersive environment. The show makes an enormous visual impact, as each scene is gorgeously directed, and it honestly generated some goosebumps. The all-female cast perform with a weight of power, emotion and energy, and the choreography is on point, mesmerising to witness, and at times even quite unnerving. As the show builds to its finish, the passion and love infusing this project is tangible, provoking an emotional response to a spectacular routine.

Assembly Checkpoint, until 28 Aug.
