Strange Kinoko Dance Company - Review


The Strange Kinko Dance Company wooed my two eldest children ( 9 + 6 years) last night at the Sydney Opera House. The dance group consists of five female dancers from Tokyo who explore different persepctives on dance by using everyday objects to question the normality of everyday life.

We ventured out to the 8.15pm show, which may be late for most families ( there is an earlier show at 6.30pm on Thursday) and enjoyed a drink at the Opera Bar before heading in. My children have only been to the theatre during the day so the evening was a special treat.

The performance was exciting and colourful with jumping, sliding and dancing around a crazy selection of furniture created by Melbourne designer Justin Caleo. The changing upbeat soundtrack made the whole piece come alive making the evening a great opportunity to expose children of all ages to dance.

As we walked out my children gave the performance a big thumbs up. My son is the process of putting together a detailed review of the performance, which will be up later this evening.
