ISH Dance Collective – Elements of Freestyle ★★★★ Sadler's Wells Peacock Theatre | April 13 - 23, 2022


What do you get when you mix adrenaline and testosterone? The answer is this terrific show that is much more than the sum of its parts. There are three amazing breakdancers (Dietrich Pott, Thomas Krikken, Arnold Put), two incredible inline skaters (Jelle Briggeman, Sven Boekhorst), two acrobatic freerunners (Luís Alkmim, Bart van der Linden), one flying skateboarder (Pim Wouters), one dexterous basketball handler (Michael Van Beek), and one awe-inspiring bicyclist (Dez Maarzen). And, they all add up to a huge evening of energy and excitement. This is a show that is much more than a series of amazing tricks and and some breathtaking stunts. It has a flow and choreography that takes it from the realm of circus into the world of dance. The musical talents of Vera van der Bie on the violin and Annie Tangberg on the cello draw together the various performance elements and bring a profundity to the work that makes it incredibly moving. Elements of Freestyle from the ISH Dance Collective spotlights superb physical skills and celebrates the joy of excellence. It is a mixture that is bound to delight all ages.
