Dreamers – Los Gemelos Lombard

Twin brothers Martin and Facundo have big dreams of stardom. From the time they were young boys in Buenos Aires, Argentina, they taught themselves to dance by studying Michael Jackson and old break-dance movies. Life dealt them some blows, but they never gave up and today, find themselves with their own show, exciting crowds at the Fringe with skilled hip-hop, popping, locking, tap, and even music composition skills.

From the moment the Lombard twins hit the stage, I immediately found myself thinking, “Where on Earth did two guys who didn’t grow up in The Bronx learn to pop-and-lock like that?” Their skills are absolutely stunning and based on their dancing, you would have no reason to believe they did not grow up on the streets of New York City. Their hoofing is equally impressive, and we later learn that they were taught by and worked with numerous tap legends while trying to make a name for themselves in New York.

The Lombard twins are full of ambition and to watch them dance, it is clear that they are, as the title of their show proclaims, dreamers. However, it is not just the autobiographical story of their struggle or their flawless dancing that makes this show a success. It is the fact that they leave their audience with the feeling that, we too, should never give up on our dreams.

Reviews by Fritzie Andrade

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
