Every performer seemed inextricably linked to the pulse and beat of the music – each movement was perfectly timed and sharp.
With a cast of just nine, Limbo takes us on a journey of circus acts, dance, physical theatre, music and magic. It's an otherworldly explosion of visually stunning and audibly impressive creativity, in a way that doesn't compromise the genuinely 'circus' feel of the whole thing.
There were a couple of individuals who particularly stood out for me: Hilton Denis' tap solo had the audience eating out of his hand and was fun while still being clean and skillful. The whole thing was led beautifully by lead singer and bandleader Elyas Kahn, who brought a huge amount of the authenticity to it. Another highlight was a jazz dance trio performed by the three men of the company, which was more traditionally jazz than anything I've seen in a while – and was a real breath of fresh air. Throughout, every performer seemed inextricably linked to the pulse and beat of the music, as the musicality of each movement, down to minute detail, was perfectly timed and sharp.
However this is just picking up little elements of something that must be seen as a complete package to be appreciated. When the music, lights and these magnificent performers all come together, it's something really magical to behold. What's more, I really felt like I'd had a night at the circus. One definitely not to be missed.
