ED2012 Physical Review: Prodigious (Lite Fantastic)

By | Published on Saturday 4 August 2012

It’s back to school as five youngsters appear uniformed in both attitude and attire. One by one, they prise themselves from their make-shift desks with spontaneous outbursts of improvised movement. The acting and dancing do work, but the two seem disjointed, somehow, and unfortunately, this makes the piece feel fragmented.  After the classroom, it’s on to Club Prodigious; we’re in the “drug-fuelled” 90s, apparently, but take away the eerie white masks and smiley face t-shirts and some may be none the wiser. Prodigious is, at times, too literal, too forced, too predictable but these performers have the ability to overcome all of that – in future, let them do the talking.
