100-Word Fringe: “Rock The Ballet” at Assembly Hall

I’ve had ups and downs with physical theatre, but that tricky relationship has always been more favourable than my one with dance. Dance that doesn’t tell a story has always seemed hollow to me, so I probably am not tailor-made for Rock The Ballet. The dancers are flawless, and anyone interested in a bevy of attractive shirtless men shimmying their way across the impressive venue won’t be disappointed. But the show lacked narrative, or even a theme, and by the time I’m Too Sexy quelled the mere idea of wearing a shirt I found myself aroused, but also strangely bored.

Rock The Ballet is playing at Assembly Hall until August 28th.

Tickets: £20 (£18)
