Still Breathing

2Faced Dance Company has been one of the major successes of the Fringe over the last few years, with several critically-acclaimed sold-out shows. This year they are back at Zoo Southside with a new show, called Still Breathing.This show is something of a departure from previous shows, which were really a demonstration of the skills of the dancers, singly and in combination. Still Breathing has a major theme, an exploration of the space we occupy. As the world we live in becomes ever more crowded and our senses ever more overwhelmed we find ourselves gasping for air. This is demonstrated by the use of moveable gantries which start at the extremes of the set and gradually move inwards so that by the end of the show the performers have no space and are forced higher and higher to escape.The dancing is, as ever, of the highest quality. The eight members of this all-male group are all extremely fit, athletic and talented. They tumble, roll and spin and they breakdance but they also perform classical ballet moves. Still Breathing is a more polished and professional show than previous years’ performances but perhaps it’s also a little less raw and exciting. Still well worth seeing.

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.
