Noise Boys

Noise Boys, playing at the Assembly at George Square, is an exhilarating evening of tap, beatbox and music that you and your entire circle of friends can’t miss.

The ingenious combination of tap dancers and beatboxers makes for a brilliant performance which is truly like nothing you’ve ever seen.  

The production is high energy fun from beginning to end. Billed as a combination of physical skills, incredible musicianship and rhythm the production features champion beatboxers, phenomenal tap dancers and street musicians from around Scotland.

The piece takes place in an Amazon delivery warehouse and shows the workers there eploring their artistic side while attempting to survive the monotonany of their jobs. The set uses large crates to create a variety of different levels and stage configurations. The lighting is well polished and there are some startlingly beautiful moments created by the simple use of light inside the crates.

The ingenious combination of tap dancers and beatboxers makes for a brilliant performance which is truly like nothing you’ve ever seen. It succeeds the most when it avoids more traditional performance modes like a man singing a song or the rap interludes. It is when it chooses to be unconventional – tap dancer vs. beat boxer, bassist vs. tap dancer – is when the production soars. All of the technical elements are highly polished and the show is an excellent intergenerational show for all the family.

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.
