Strasbourg 1518

It took me a good hour to calm down after experiencing Strasbourg 1518. It was phenomenal, there is no other word for it.

The show is exquisitely choreographed immersive chaos that speaks to the current climate despite it being about a 500 year old dancing plague. There is music that isn't music but merely sound which may have you wondering if you've stepped somehow into a heavy metal concert.

Last year perched on the precipice of lockdown I think this show may have been even more powerful in it's one night that it was staged before the world closed down. But it is still a delightful mess - and a literal one, they do everything but set the stage alight.

I cannot recommend this highly enough and the audience agreed with a standing ovation from the packed theatre. This show deserves to be sold out every night of its short run.

Performances: 23-28 March, times vary

Tickets: $52
