SIRO-A Technology Show 

When I was sent an invite to the press night it very nearly went into the recycling, I do not like dance, I do not follow all the various TV programs extolling dance, so why then did I go and why was it such a great experience.

The technology used was the winner for me, the fact that it was a mix of live performers and almost impossible to tell the difference between them and projections. The LEDs their body suits were covered in the total lack of scenery except for some large cubes that were stacked in various precision ways and the whole accuracy of their placement on the stage.

It was a wonderful performance from one person doing the lighting and one the sound at the back of the stage but for me the most amazing thing was that the dancers were only four. See the show to see how just four could do everything they did.

There is a clip of the troupe in Japan and while the curtain bit that is the first part of it is clever the latter part is more of what you can see in the Leicester Square Theatre in London on various dates until the 22nd April 2013.

The amount of technology and training for those four performers – I do not call them dancers – was sheer skill. One word of warning the music was rather loud so if like me it was too loud you should bring earplugs with you. However even a non dance lover like me had a great time.
