Lords Of Strut (Sharon Burgess Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

If Louis Spence hosted a teleshopping programme, this would be the product. Wearing obscene amounts of spandex and glitter, ‘Lords Of Strut’ begin a hilarious performance, mocking dancers who take themselves too seriously. The show is both genuinely funny and brilliantly choreographed. The tongue-in-cheek camp and deliberate blunders build on the performers’ charming Irish personae, and a strong devotion to the music of Wham! is thrown in for good measure. The irony, of course, is that, under the pretence of crapness, the two cast members possess a raw acrobatic talent, performing moves that will make your palms sweat as you watch them. A must for dance fans and budding divas alike.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug (not 12), 7.30pm.
