Technodelic Comedy Show (Siro-A Japan)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

The lovechild of GamarJobat and Sirqus Alfon, this is a technical marvel. Conspiring to combine comedy, dance and technical wizardry with a healthy dose of thumping techno music, each of their sketches uses all of these tools to wonderful effect. Live performers superimpose themselves over projected material that is both pre-made and recorded in the auditorium, creating a frequently amusing and always visually impressive experience. Highlights include one of the troupe turning an attempt to swat a fly into a ninja sword fight against himself, and a light-catching routine that features a game of Breakout. A few technical hiccups show that perhaps their ideas are a little ahead of their budget, but this is still quality family entertainment.

C eca, 5 – 29 Aug, 3.50pm (4.50pm), £6.50 – £11.50, fpp178.
