Broadway Baby

It is not often you leave a performance lost of words. However, any viewer leaving the dimly lit and beautifully simplistic set of A Simple Space cannot help but leave impressed.

Just to clarify, there is nothing simple about what the six performers are doing on stage. From the innovative music to the wonderful acrobatics, perfection can be detected in all elements of the performance. The opening sequence features a jumping rope version of strip poker, the first of many sorts of competitions between the dancers. Special mention should be made of a particularly funny challenge in which the audience is invited to throw small rubber balls at the dancers whilst the latter are standing on their hands. The one who manages to stand the longest, wins. Not surprisingly, all of them managed to hold themselves up longer than most of us could dream of.

Between the humorous competitions the audience is treated to mind blowing dance and acrobatics. The stage isn’t big and yet the performers carry out their task with skill and precision, making even the most demanding and physically challenging movements seem ridiculously easy. They clearly enjoy themselves thoroughly, constantly surprising the audience with ever more spectacular and enjoyable stunts. In the act’s grand finale the only female dancer is essentially thrown around the stage by the rest, leaving an already impressed audience silent with awe and admiration.

A Simple Space is bound to blow you away and the young performers who have come all the way from Australia deserve all the praise they can get. This truly is a wonderful production. Simple, perhaps, but all the more spectacular for it.
