ED2012 Physical Review: Rhythmic Circus – Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! (Rhythmic Circus)

By | Published on Saturday 11 August 2012

Energy comes off this vibrant routine from ‘Rhythmic Circus’ in palpable waves; this dance and orchestral ensemble from Minnesota has captured something primal about music, and ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!’ is a tremendous performance that mixes funk, blues, tap, beat-box and a cappella into a storm of feverish excitement. Crackling with enthusiasm from start to finish, the set is varied, imaginative, and playful. The whole cast seem to be having the time of their lives, and the sheer vitality contained in this performance makes for a unifying experience. In the latter half of the show, a comparison made between the beat and a living pulse sums up their attitude to music and movement – that it is instinctive, constant, and essential.

Assembly George Square, 1-27 Aug (not 13, 20), 3.40pm.
