I don't always "get" contemporary dance, but I found Story of a Night Pianist atmospheric and interesting. I wasn't initially sure what to make of the "promenade" section - though it certainly made a change from the conventional stage setting - but the second half makes sense of it, bringing everything to a very satisfying conclusion. (Plus, we finally get to meet the titular pianist. I was worried there wasn't going to be one.)
An extraordinary and moving piece of dance/theatre/thing making wonderful use of the space. If you follow the work of Punchdrunk you should definitely see this - cleverer and sweeter and strangely profound.
An excellent and unusual show, making good use of the internal and external music. Haunting and beautiful live music add to the atmosphere. Well worth seeing and experiencing.
A very strong show. I'm rarely excited by site-specific work, but this one is really visually interesting. The music is really beautiful and beautifully performed, as is the dancing. Highly recommended.
