Cycle One (60°) (In-Transit Dance)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

Less is more – or such is the case with ‘Cycle One (60°)’. Taking the mundane – the hastening thud of a washing machine – as their inspiration and soundtrack, In-Transit Dance tumble, whirl and leap in little more than their underwear. The highlighted moments are those of slow simplicity – the sensuality of rubbing hands, the tense, gradually lolling head. As the cycle quickens, the frenzy is disorientating and most successful when the dancers mirror and play themselves off each other’s exuberant energy. Much like the whirling machine they’re emulating, however, constant vaults and floor sweeps become repetitive and somewhat monotonous. By no means squeaky clean, they are evidently a vibrant young independent group, bubbling with energy and good humour.

Greenside, 5 – 27 Aug (not 14, 21), 7.00pm (7.50pm), £5.00 – £7.00, fpp169.
