Personal critical review
The day was amazing especially the starting. I entered the door of
Barbican theatre and I was amazed over the spacious and unique venue
everything was very clean and rich I felt like royalty.
As I entered the door of the theatre where ‘over the edge’ was I sat
down on the comfortable seat which was booked for me, the first thing I
saw was the stage.
The stage design was unique as the stage design was full of square

the stage to the bottom which was very exciting to see and it was really
unusual from what I thought how the stage was going to open. From my
point of view I thought the staging could have been better as the people
in front couldn’t see.

brushing their teeth and getting them selves organised threw mirrors.
It was very unique on how I thought it was going to start but I liked it, it
showed the begging story line well. I spotted out that their movements
where trough dance steps the dancers used the props and equipment well
an example for this is when the table was faced up and used as a mirror.
Secondly the next dance showed the characters the dancers where
playing an example for this was when their was when one of the dancers
played a homeless man and done a real good job, also another example was
when one of the dancers where playing a builder man and done street
dancing while reading a magazine that was very unique and eye catching to
Thirdly, suddenly the whole setting changed some how some of the
dancers ended up in a space ship and the setting were alien life.
Four of the dancers where hanging from the sealing and was wearing
breathing mask on which was unusual.
The dance ended with a bad boy crew dance which was very clver
