Sao Paulo Dance Company - Dance Consortium

Dance Consortium is a platform that exists to enable dance companies from around the world to tour the UK and Ireland. Made up of 19 theatres, it allows companies that wouldn't necessarily have the platform in the UK to showcase their work a way in which they can celebrate their dance and style. 

This time is the turn of Sao Paulo Dance Company that pairs heat and energy to bring together colourful and classic dance styles in an awe inspiring show that captivates audiences from curtain up until curtain call and beyond. Bringing together the choreography of three brilliant artistic directors, this showcase is something truly special and meant to be seen on a huge stage like the Mayflower's.  

Drag 'N' Drop! - Lighthouse Poole

 Merging gender ideology and quantum physics initially seems like one of the strangest combinations that you can get in a drag show. I mean, on the surface there seems to be hardly any similarities between the two. One is science, and one is all about gender identity. Yet Drag 'N' Drop by Ri Baroche does just that in a wild and wonderful show that puts what it means to be an individual in the world under a microscope. 

I Should Be So Lucky - The Stock Aitken Waterman Musical Review

 The music of Stock Aitken Waterman is nothing short of iconic. Dominating the British music scene during the 1980's and 1990's, they are amongst the most successful songwriters and producers in the pop music scene. With such an array of fantastic songs from artists such as Kylie, Rick Astley, and Bananarama, their fans have spanned decades and their songs are still enjoyed to this day. 

When it was announced in 2023 that a musical titled "I Should Be So Lucky" and comprised solely of Stock Aitken Waterman tracks was to be released, you have to have a slight air of concern. Personally, the jukebox musical can be completely hit or miss. Some shows that I think would have done well have fallen short, whilst other rogue musicals have completely won me over. Going into this show at the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, I have to say I was dubious, would I be so lucky to have a fab night?
