Our first trip to the Brighton Spiegeltent was a lovely experience as we witnessed some charming dance theatre from Up and Over It. ‘Into The Water’ combined body percussion and folk dancing with some beautiful storytelling and visual effects.
Two young friends, played by Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding took us on a surreal journey through their childhood in this engaging piece of dance. The stage was littered with children’s toys, clothes and garden type equipment which the two character played with whilst testing the strength of their friendship through various dance contests and percussive moments.
Jonny Reed’s visual effect helped elevate this show from an amazing dance piece into a sublime dream. This was a pure visual treat of dance and imagery for all the family.
Highlight of the piece – Suzanne and Peter’s phenomenal body rhythm dancing.
