Jordan Town - The Errollyn Wallen Company
Drams a wee one
Venue C Underground (88)
Address Niddry St South, off Cowgate, 225 5105
An extended and wholly superior music video. Errollyn Wallen
plays piano and sings. Her voice is rich, and supported by a string
quartet she creates a sublime ethereal flow of music.
Behind is a flow of images by The Honey Brothers. This forms
the backdrop to a series of pieces by Royal Ballet dancer Tom
Sapsford. It is a rare delight to see a dancer of such ability up
close. Sapsford is strong yet graceful, and his dancing fluently mixes
sensuous flow with moments of stillness.
Jordan Town is a treat for the eyes and ears. Superb on many
Run ends 18 Aug. Tickets £8 (£6). CDs on sale at the box office.
