MyoSung: Streetdance

A new dance fusion of hip-hop, breaking and traditional Korean dance is introduced into our physical vocabulary by an innovative young company from Korea.

In one hour, MyoSung takes us on a journey of 13 quick dance vignettes, intended to both entertain and educate. These are interrupted only by the occasional slideshow of photographic subjects ranging from inspirational handicapped athletes to the children of war.

These dancers have successfully taken a form of dance that originated in New York and placed their stamp on it. The grace and physical strength on display is incredibly exciting to watch. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough for choreographer Zino Seoul. The broad range of topics combined with the long pauses between each piece result in a slightly disjointed production. We can only hope that next time faith will be placed in the talent of the dancers rather than the flash of costumes that light up.

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.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. 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. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
