Shadowland: An acrobatic triumph of dance

Rating:

Showing until 30 March 2014 at the Peacock theatre, Shadowland is an immersive, smart, ingenious blend of live-acting and human shadow-puppetry. The American Pilobolus Dance Theatre shows us exactly that there is more to a shadow than meets the eye. This is a clever production, where the mastery of shadow-play is not only clearly evident, but is taken to the very edge of can be achieved through this medium. Shadowland transplants you into a world where reality and illusion clash through the entwining of bodies. However, you’re left feeling, that though the performance was faultless, the story somewhat let down what otherwise was a thoroughly immersive show.

The Woman in Black: A reign of terror in the dark

Rating:

The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre is a unanimously acclaimed theatre production, and from experiencing it, it’s pretty obvious why. If someone was to tell you, that a two-man on-stage theatre production would have you jumping out of your seat, and transport the audience to a terrifyingly ghostly world, you would not quite believe them, would you? But, The Woman in Black achieves exactly that effect, as it combines live theatre-production, with ominous cinematic effects to achieve a mesmerizingly terrifying theatrical experience.
