LOL (Lots of Love)
An astonishingly multi-talented cast dance their hearts (and their lungs) out for 70 minutes in a blistering mix of beauty and wit. Facebook, txt, Twitter, e-mail and dating language and etiquette are all ruthlessly but artfully mined to create an accompanying text that makes you laugh with joy and cringe with recognition. I shall not quickly forget the hilarious sequence where two e-mail correspondents jerk to the sound of typing at a computer keyboard - one of them clearly a Mac, to judge by the ‘send’ notification punctuating the action.
This is dance theatre as observational comedy – in many ways it’s a good old-fashioned comedy of manners. It’s also captivating, cool, generous-hearted, inventive, smart and avant-garde. Love belongs to everyone, not least those who live on the margins of loneliness or articulacy or conventional beauty. This desperately warm, funny and life-affirming company-devised show is for all of them - and for everyone else too.
