Pick of the bunch was Synthesis Dance Project’s ‘Unravel’ (a world premier). Set to a stunning vocal interpretation of Ravel’s Bolero by Angelique Kidjo, we witnessed a beguiling, energetic & balletic version of the Tango performed in a semi circle of roses. The dancer faced the back of the stage giving the effect that we were seeing this from a unique backstage perspective, looking out over the dancer to her own imagined audience. Festival organiser Jodi Kaplan has again brought together the best of dance from New York to serve up a show that’s as diverse as it was enchanting. A definite must see for fans of modern & contemporary dance. FOUR STARS
