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)
