Elements Of Freestyle (ISH Dance Collective)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

When first reading about this show, the term ‘balletic’ did not immediately come to mind. However, after watching it I think that is the most accurate way to describe it; the poise, precision and passion put into each skill and the ways in which they were coordinated were more like dance than anything else. Combining numerous different freestyle sports, the show moved smoothly from one amazing set up to another, making good use of the space and allowing each element to be as close to the audience as was possible. There can be no doubt that this demonstration of talent will entertain people of all ages, as there is more going on here than just ‘cool’ tricks.

Pleasance at EICC, until 25 Aug.
