NZICF 2016: Lords of Strut – Chaos

Lords of Strut

Famous Seamus and Seantastic have a mission – to change people’s lives with dance. Made up of a series of comical skits in which these bickering brothers prance, leap around and strut their stuff, Chaos is all about the visual spectacle.

At the top of the show, the audience are invited to leave their troubles at the door (you can pick them up later), let loose and just have a rollicking good time. This talented double act are eager to please and their energy and enthusiasm is certainly infectious.

From impressive acrobatics to silly antics and boisterous tomfoolery, the material is satirical by nature, often veering between mild amusement and sheer lunacy. There really isn’t a specific narrative or direction to the show but this free-wheeling, unpredictable quality is what makes it exciting and engaging.

Cian Kinsella and Cormac Mohally, the lads behind the Lords of Strut, are natural stage performers, easily entertaining the audience with their impish charm and dynamic choreography. The highly theatrical style of their showmanship is an echo of their street performing days and work very well with the show.

Chaos is utterly absurd, wonderfully facetious and is the ideal late night comedy treat. The Lords of Strut bring together carny and cheek fabulously to form a high-spirited hour of riotous fun and frivolity.

4-stars

Chaos is on until April 30th at Q Theatre at 10pm then heads to The Fringe Bar for its Wellington season May 3rd – 7th at 8:30pm. For more details and to book tickets, click here.
