Show Review: LIMBO - London Wonderground, South Bank ✭✭✭✭✭

London Wonderground

20th May 2013: Coming from a sold out run at Adelaide Festival with huge critical acclaim, LIMBO is gracing London for the summer in the wonderful Spiegeltent venue down on South Bank.

With performers from all over the globe, Limbo is an exotic mix of dancing, live music, illusions, circus skills and gymnastics with breathtaking performances from all involved. Jonathan Nosan is incredibly bendy, making his body parts go in all directions imaginable. Heather Holliday does some amazing fire-eating, Evelyne Allard does a stunning chain trapeze act, Danik Abishev goes handstand crazy and Mikael Bres does a pole dance that gets you on the edge of your seat. Hilton Denis tap dances into your mind, and the three men do a rather marvellous act on three bendy poles which go over the audience - has to be seen to be believed.

All this is put together with sumptuous music from Sxip Shirey setting the scene from the off, with the band playing a variety of instruments. Illusions are designed by Paul Kieve (Ghost the Musical) and lighting from Philip Gladwell partners the action nicely.

Director Scott Maidment has pulled out all the stops to make Limbo one of best things in London at the moment, and running at just over an hour long, you will be a fool to miss this brilliant show!
