Any More Legroom? (JMUpstart Dance Company)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

This all-woman dance company hailed from their base at Liverpool John Moores University and aimed to create innovative pieces that could inspire and encourage more participation in dance. They were all clearly of a high ability – demonstrated by the various dance styles covered during the performance, with moments of high impact and energy. The pieces were all well choreographed, and highlights for me included the screen works which were projected, and a performance using stage lights; I did, however, feel there could have been more integration between the pieces which seemed to be lacking an overall storyline or message. Overall, this was a strong performance that needed just a little more polishing.

Greenside, 5 – 13 Aug, 2.55pm (3.55pm), £5.00 – £7.00, fpp168.
