I liked the film at the beginning – it was interesting to know about their process, and very good to see. Costumes: I liked the black overalls at the start, they looked heavy. I liked the white tops and white trousers, they looked light and Soft. Space: I liked the big space, it was enough space for the large cast to move around in. I liked how they used the space, when they weren’t dancing they were standing at the sides. I Liked the pattern on the floor – it was very Colourful. Sound: I liked the timings of the rhythm of the Drums Lightning: I liked the bright background lights. Movement: I liked the different styles of movements, and how they danced one by one with the drums in the Middle. I liked the jumping, it was energetic and lively. I liked how they used different parts of their bodies, and how they communicated. Paul’s Solo it was Brilliant It was good, it was Fantastic. Recommendation: It’s an easy to get to, it’s a good place and accessible, and is good for wheelchair users.
