Up And Over It – Back On Our Feet (Up & Over It)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2012

Dynamic duo Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding dazzle in this spellbinding performance of virtuosic technique, athletic stamina and strong characterisation. Throw into the mix video artist Jonny Reed, who takes their scintillating skill in Irish dancing, and you have a super swift show. For those who don’t know, ‘Up and Over It’ were ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ semi-finalists in 2011, information that’s shown through a montage of TV interviews and YouTube clips. Tapping en pointe, to prove a point, with their hands, in a dance-off, in the kitchen – Cleary and Harding have created a rhythmic language of their own which beautifully synchronises in this performance partnership. Original, witty and extremely clever – a must see this season!

Assembly George Square, Aug 2-26 (excluding 14 and 21), 6.05pm
