ED2013 5/5 Reviews ED2013 Dance & Physical Theatre Reviews

Cambuyon (Enlace S.C.)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Imagine bodies hiding in the shadows, hands dancing under the spotlight, leading to an impassioned body percussion orchestra. The talented members of the Cambuyon cast are the rhythm and the beat. Nestor Busquets and Jonatan Rodriguez drum on items ranging from giant wooden crates to a tiny match box. Clara and Berta Pons move their bodies at rapid speed in unbelievable ways. Ruben Sanchez comically challenges Jep Melendez through tap. And leading the sound track is the beautiful sound of Raul Cabrera’s flamenco-esque beat boxing. There’s an enormous (and successful) fusion of dance styles on display here; and their skills are choreographed to provide a humorous and impressive spectacle. A true sensation of sight and sound.

Assembly Roxy, until 26 Aug (not 13), 6.00pm.
