LATITUDE 2015: Full Stop

Artist(s): Light The Fuse
Directors: Gemma Fairlie andNeil Bettles
Designer: Mika Handley
Venue: Pandora’s Playground
Reviewer: Glen Pearce

Festival goers are used to stumbling uponthe unexpected across Henham Park during Latitude but a London Bus Stop supplanted into the Suffolk Countryside still raises the odd eyebrow.

Light The Fuse’s Full Stop was one of the surprise hits from Latitude 2014 and now it returns in a revised version, tighter and even more impressive than in its first incarnation.

Part transport hub, part social centre, the bus stop offers and insight into a cross section of the community. Some may be awaiting a bus, others using the shelter for more clandestine means. Lovers, drunks, battling mothers and even pigeon bombing grannies all staking their claim.

Part dance, part drama, part comedy, part installation, Light The Fuse ensure audiences are constantly guessing where to look next. The performers,Maria Gray,Anna Simpson,Luke Chadwick-Jones, andRob Welling,swap costumes and characters with dexterous speed. It’s all perfectly timed and perfectly pitched. Acrobatics fusing with drama and comedy to create an engaging and entertaining look at society.

It may be performed tongue in cheek but you’ll never be able to look at your fellow passengers on public transport in the same light again.
