Fright Or Flight (3 is a Crowd & Cara Hume)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Absurdist, absolutely barmy and extremely good, ‘Fright or Flight’ is a spectacle. The odd setting makes you wonder if you’ve walked straight onto another planet, but once you get used to the strange happenings on-stage, the entire piece becomes rather beautiful. The three actresses contort themselves into amazing shapes, and their pure strength and physicality is mind-blowing. A series of random scenes rather than an overarching story, the animalistic choreography is one of the only constants throughout the piece. At times hilarious and at times so touching, emotion is expressed only through movement. Completely mad and fully engrossing, you’re guaranteed not to see anything else like it.

Assembly Roxy, until 26 Aug (not 7, 19), 7.30pm.
