Ellis & Rose – Big In Denmark (Pay What You Want)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

The problem with creating a show that’s dominated by chaos is that it has the tendency to lack structure, coherence and purpose (naturally). Ellis and Rose did their best to stir up some bedlam in the room, but a lack of focus hampered their efforts. With the show essentially involving a massively protracted introduction, the duo’s inability to advance their performance was in many respects amusing, but simultaneously unbearable. With plenty of charisma, they certainly have the potential to do more profound, mature things; it’s just a matter of whether they can actually get around to doing them. You don’t have to be sane to work here, but it helps.

Heroes @ The Hive, until 25 Aug (not 19), 3.30pm.
