Dance Physical Theatre and Circus
Drawn from one of the most popular works of classical Chinese literature, this stylishly buoyant show by Nai-Hsuan Yang's Les Petites Choses Production is fierce fun for all ages. Introduced by a welcoming narrator, five godly characters spring vividly to life from page to stage. The wonderfully game cast's energising fusion of hip-hop and contemporary dance is further enlivened by a folk-techno soundtrack. The result is a highly entertaining slice of theatrical mythology brought bang up-to-date for a global society that might well need a new breed of heroes.
