Chalk About Review
Primary Times Reader Review Quote: 'The overall experience was uplifting and thought provoking, this is a show that will stay with me...This is a 5 star show, see it if you can! '
This wonderful show uses dance, music and chat as two dancers explore life, death, loneliness, happiness and what it means to be human.
There were moments of real beauty, as the dancing, the music and the use of chalk outlines, cut outs and balloons combined to create scenes that were, at times, hauntingly lovely. The recordings of children talking about their identity added an extra dimension and while the funny parts of the show were very very funny, the sad parts were extremely moving. The overall experience was uplifting and thought provoking, this is a show that will stay with me.
My 10 year old son was equally impressed ''It was a very good show and I thought they did it very well. Some bits were very funny and some bits were very sad. It surprised me. It did it in a different way than I was expecting.''
Since seeing the show my son has clearly been thinking hard about some of the ideas broached during the show and we have had some interesting conversations as a result.
This is a 5 star show, see it if you can!
