Bromance (Underbelly Productions in association with Barely Methodical Troupe present)

By | Published on Monday 18 August 2014

Fusing circus with comedy, brotherhood with romance, and sex appeal with stunts, ‘Bromance’ is brought to you by Barely Methodical Troupe, winners of Circus Maximus, the UK’s first circus competition. Using powerful music and spotlights, the troupe perform an array of acrobatics around the central theme of friendship. The trio are both sweet and sexy, performing moves to make mothers cringe and girls swoon. Acknowledging the audience’s presence, the performers incorporate humorous interactions in the production, often pausing to simply sit, whistle and while away the time. These scenes, though providing some comedic relief, slowed down the pace of the production, which is my only complaint. A charismatic and talented troupe with a bright future.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug.
