Three men, a giant metal ring, a bottle of hand lotion and an Indian headdress; these were the surprising ingredients for the charming acrobatic show Bromance.
Performed at St George's Theatre in Great Yarmouth as part of both the Norfolk and Norwich Festival and the town's own In Here season the show set out to explore male relationships through music and movement.
Witty and arresting the piece playfully charted the ups and down of the relationships between the Barely Methodical troupe's three members. The bulk of Louis Gift and agility of Beren D'Amico were combined for some breathtaking throws and lifts – it's always a good sign to hear an audience gasp – and Charlie Wheeler's dexterity with the cyr wheel saw him become a dizzying human gyroscope.
The show also mixed in genuine slapstick, often nicely set to the soundtrack, and a comedy dance routine that raised belly laughs in the auditorium, with the performance climaxing with an audacious three-man tower.
Circa are rightly touted as one of the Festival highlights but with this show Barely Methodical are snapping at their heels. This was sharp, tightly choreographed, and with a soul; a delight to watch.
The In Here festival continues at various venues around Great Yarmouth until May 23.
