Being performed at the Pleasance Courtyard, Murder on the Dancefloor is a high impact physical theatre play. Energy oozes out of this performance about Sabrina and her friends and family as they all struggle to find their place in the world. Murder on the Dancefloor explores the taboo subject of money and how far we will go to ensure we get what we want. The play covers dark subjects such as greed and jealousy in a intense yet fun way.
A play that discusses money in a raw and relatable way, Murder on the Dancefloor is sure to entertain. The choreography and direction deserves a particular mention as the innovative way in which both Zak Nemorin and Olli Norton-Smith use movement to get across the story and inner turmoil of the characters is commendable. The performers execute this movement with ease and commitment as they incorporate plenty of lifts, running and darting around the stage that could quite easily go wrong.
The actors are incredibly skilled and quite clearly have a lot of stamina as the piece is full on from start to finish. The way in which they execute their characters is well rehearsed and impressive. Murder on the Dancefloor takes some concentration to watch as the differences between multi-roled characters is sometimes very small meaning it is possible to get lost in the story, though this is a minor problem.
Murder on the Dancefloor is one to watch and the company, Spies Like Us, are a team of incredibly talented and innovative performers.
