ED2015 Dance & Physical Theatre Reviews

Bromance (Underbelly Productions by arrangement with DREAM present Barely Methodical Troupe)

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015


Fusing physical theatre and contemporary circus, Bromance is a beguiling portrayal of friendship and masculinity. Beginning with a handshake, the show builds into a simple yet exquisite narrative that actually gave me goose bumps. Very few words are used as Beren D’Amico, Charlie Wheeler and Louis Gift use their bodies and cheeky personalities to develop the story, alongside very effectively selected music. Exploring trust, support and camaraderie, the display is beautifully choreographed, mixing in elements of anticipation and plenty of humour. It could only really end with a standing ovation, which the boys fully deserved for their expert performance. I must confess that I enjoyed this imaginative, original show so much that I am planning to see it again.

Underbelly’s Circus Hub on The Meadows, until 29 Aug.
