The Show
Performed at ArtsDepot, Finchley, 16 March and 24 April 2007

 

Music:

Dancers:

Girls Aloud, "The Show"

Y10 and Y11 dancers from St Mary's CofE High, Barnet

 

The theme of “The Show” is a celebration of physicality and display. Dancers pose and strut across the stage and wind around one another, competing for attention.

The piece was created using Bob Fosse-style body shapes as an inspiration. The performers then created their own sections using contact work and intertwining shapes.
