40/40

Review by Iliyana Nedkova
.
Did you know that we launched @TradDanceScot recommends – our popular Twitter thread in the summer 2022. We hand-picked over a dozen of shows from across all corners of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for their unexpected mix of trad and contemporary dance!

40/40
.
Strip off the grey suit
Don a riotous headdress
Open your heart
Dance for joy
.
A rhythmic gymnast no more
A box-busting mover and shaker instead
A piece on the chess board of life with
A matching shirt and stage
.
Roll out the dance floor of childhood
Reveal the stretch marks on body and soul
Play the air guitar but with a piercing needle
Draw new lines to face and floor
.
Dance is a migratory bird
Flying high and low
Migrating between
north and soul
east and rest
.
.
Catch 40/40 on tour, including on 7 Feb in Edinburgh and 10-11 Feb in Glasgow. Further details: https://www.twodestinationlanguage.com/on-stage/4040
