ED2012 Physical Review: Sulle Labbra Tue Dolcissime (On Your Honey Lips) (Francesca Selva’s Dance Company / Florence For Fringe)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2012

How apt that a performance in Edinburgh should begin with rain? During this video/dance performance, the inside and outside worlds collide around the theme of alienation. With a rainbow of colours, the dancers paint the bleak stage with movement while behind them a screen flickers with images: a pigeon, a naked man in a bath. Movements become wilder, and the energy precipitates throughout the theatre until the dancers collapse and you feel your breath synchronising with theirs in a moment of total absorption. The unnatural appears innate in the bodies of these top class dancers. They caress and repel one another, there is anger, fear and sympathy. It is a piece which will leave you both perplexed and amazed.

Zoo Southside, 3-27 Aug (not 8, 20), 4.40pm.
