Lunacy Nicked strikes the balance between playfulness and sentimentality in the non-stop Hear Me In. The audience are thrown into a game-show like atmosphere right from the start thanks to the recorded voices. The dance is artistically energetic, utilizing the entire stage. The performance leads us down lots of blind alleys, with an exaggerated narrative leaving us with much to guess at. The high kicks and leg gestures thrown by the three female dancers in their dresses have echoes of Busby Berkeley and the can-can. The exploration of relationships through archetypal movement challenges the original momentum of the dance to create a captivating tenderness. [Laura Griffiths]
