Then it’s not. Saying more than that would be the plot spoiler of the century, so suffice to say this is very much a show of two halves.
We arrive to find a large wooden platform suspended from the ceiling, a strap in each corner holding it in place. When the three performers are motionless, the stage stays horizontal and still. As soon as they move, so does the platform – and the skill and dexterity required to keep themselves onboard is fascinating to watch.
With such a compelling scenario in motion, the next section feels like coitus interruptus and, to my mind, not worth it. To quote the stranger sitting next to me: “that’s a shame, I was really caught up in that”. Yes, me too.
Until 25 August
