About this show

In this adrenaline-fuelled explosion of extreme urban sports, dance, music and theatre, the Netherlands' ISH Dance Collective create breathtaking poetry with every single moment at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Whether you float on ballet shoes or on skates, with ISH, it's all dance. Elements of Freestyle is about those redeeming seconds that make a complicated trick ultimately succeed; about the freestylers' total focus on the moment, the ecstasy and the feeling of complete and total freedom. In a spectacular fusion of breakdance, inline skating, skateboarding, freestyle basketball, BMX and freerunning, the audience discovers the artistry behind the trick. Simultaneously both exquisitely beautiful and heart-poundingly exciting, director Marco Gerris' ('So You Think You Can Dance?') show packs a punch.
