Nobel (Theatre With Teeth)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

This interpretive dance set, about stem cell research, is a great example of just how wonderfully eccentric a Fringe show can be. The production, by Exeter students Theatre With Teeth, allays all concerns you might have that a show like this is perhaps just too out-there. It is a thoughtful and inquisitive play which doesn’t preach, merely poses questions and states facts about the ethical boundaries of science. The dance is exuberant and innovative, with minimalist props used to maximum effect, like the balloons and UV paint used to create spectral premonitions of skeletons. The play is superbly cast, each performer placed perfectly within an ensemble who are working assuredly and calmly to disprove any prejudices that dance cannot speak.

Zoo, until 26 Aug (not 11, 18), 12.30pm.
