New Art Club – Feel About Your Body (New Art Club)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Tom and Pete of the New Art Club take their well-structured silliness very seriously. Bursting with energy and marvellously engaging, the double act’s objective is to make their audience feel great about their bodies. Finding just the right balance between song and dance, comic turns and full-frontal male nudity, ‘Feel About Your Body’ never felt farcical, and had me laughing out loud throughout. From throwing themselves exuberantly about the stage imagining how wonderful being a butterfly must be, to a tightly choreographed dance number about a shed, their antics were a delight to watch. Perhaps Tom’s conversation with his sphincter allowed the energy of the show to dip ever so slightly. Still, I left feeling uplifted, and undeniably great: objective achieved.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug (not 13, 20), 6.45pm.
