Death Of A Disco Dancer (Ultraviolet Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2022

The words “chaotic but beautiful” perfectly encapsulate this show. The edfringe site had it tagged as immersive, however, upon viewing, this felt like a more standard performance. A group of four friends are partying the night away but – as expected – things start unravelling. Blaring music and an overload of light ensues, with the actors’ energetic performances creating multiple moments of havoc. This sometimes worked well but at times it hindered the story, as it became difficult to know what was going on, or indeed where to look. There are some beautiful moments, though, with impressive visuals and captivating choreography. All good parties end somewhat badly but this one got a little too messy.

Greenside @ Infirmary Street, until 13 Aug.
