Edinburgh International Festival 2017 Vuelos Church Hill Theatre Review  Saturday 12th August

HOMEPAGE FRINGE 2017 PAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016

Vuelos (Flights) created by Aracaladanza, a multi award-winning dance theatre company from Madrid specialising in works for children and young people, is at The Churchill Theatre as part of this year’s Edinburgh International Festival.  There are always at the Edinburgh Festivals some wonderful performance works designed for children that appeal far outside of the age range that they are intended for, and Vuelos is one of them, so please, don’t not go to this one if you think it is only for children as, although this production is a wonderfully stylish work of “children’s theatre”, it could easily play to adult audiences in theatres anywhere.

This production combines digital animation and life-size puppets, mirrors and shadows, wonderful stylish choreography and mesmerising music.

Although the source material for Vuelos is based on Leonardo da Vinci’s fascination with flight, and the ingenious machines to give man the flight of birds, there is something very basic in this production to our human fascination with flight, shadows, mirrors and movement…something that instinctively appeals to us as young children and still never leaves us as adults.  Although designed as a production for children, we also explore other elements of Leonardo da Vinci’s ever inquisitive mind in works based on perpetual motion, the anatomy and movement of animals and man plus some cubic geometry.

Led by choreographer Enrique Cabrera, Aracaladanza has produced a truly magical piece of stylish performance theatre that has had enormous attention to every small detail of its production given to it.  Child or adult, young or old, it will awaken in you that age old dream of flying and soaring free with the birds in the sky.
