NSDF: Facehunters

Published Thursday 28 March 2013 at 14:07 by Kevin Berry

Lights sweep across the auditorium, thumping music is being played and a club full of dancers is poised - all fierce expressions and unflinching postures. Prepare yourselves for life, love and death in the hipster culture.

Leeds-based company The Hungry Bitches is aiming at a higher profile by appearing at the NSDF and there is no better way to achieve that than by presenting a high-impact show such as this. Facehunters blows a gale. It has strength with subtlety and impressive originality in the choreography and songs. Megan Griffith has developed a clean, uncluttered choreographic language and Graham Mercer’s musical numbers are punchy and purposeful. His laments have soul.

Some of the acting needs work but the narrative is at its most effective when the performers are singing - especially Charlotte Ward as a tragic druggie and Laura Johnson as the pivotal character.

More will be heard from The Hungry Bitches and from Mercer.
