Each of the dancers gets his share of time in the spotlight. Horsey, for one, is hoisted feet first to the top of the construction and does his upside-down tap dance while the others hold him in place with ropes and pulleys. But most of the action comes in pairs or groups, with the half-dozen working together like a well-oiled machine.
Perry’s contribution as choreographer is well matched by that of his co-creator, Nigel Triffitt, credited with both directing the show and designing the do-it-yourself jigsaw puzzle of a set. The dance and set are so finely integrated that one number literally sends sparks flying.
David Murray’s lighting effects and the contemporary score by Andrew Wilkie are solid contributions. Performing live, and well, on platforms above the stage (and occasionally interacting with the dancers) are musicians Scott Bruce and Jason Yudoff.
