Sediment (Company 2)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2018

Passionate, poignant and playful, Company 2’s ‘Sediment’ fuses circus and dance in a love story inspired by excerpts from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s ‘Notes From Underground’. Alice Muntz and David Carberry display immense talent and graft in some awesome acts, executed with impressive sensitivity to character and relationship. One particular sequence left me spellbound, as they created an extremely touching scene with some incredible feats using glass bottles. But whilst certain parts were magical, the piece took some time to get into its stride, and at times the story was lost or the pace flagged. With a little work, this piece could be truly breathtaking, and I think it could be transformed into something remarkable.

Assembly Roxy, until 26 Aug.
