I saw the Grantham performance of Out of Bounds and had a really great evening.   I know very little about modern dance but I found the show to be both moving and very, very entertaining.


Ad fidem is probably the closest to what I expected the dancing style to be.  As well as thought provoking choreography it was beautifully produced with very effective lighting and music.


404-not found was a lighter piece demonstrating the dramatic and balletic skills of Paul Chantry. 


Singing Day highlighted his choreographic skills, sensitively interpreted by Rae Chantry.


All I can do is be me - I must admit I was dreading this, as I'm not a fan of Bob Dylan.  In the event it was my favourite part of the evening.   It was a light  feel-good end to the evening.  I particularly loved the look of sheer delight on Paul's face as he watched his company at work.  It was also the most balletic of the four pieces, and as such well within my comfort zone.


As it says above - leave your pre-conceptions at the door (as always with this company).  This modern ballet in the true sense of the word - if you like dance you are in for a treat.
