Contemporary dance can often seem alienating, but And Now… makes this creative style of dance beautifully accessible. The combination of the wonderful score with the great chemistry between the dancers, not to mention the skill on show, fills the performance with nostalgia and joy.

The story follows four young children who are faced with growing up, thinking about the future and leaving innocence and games behind. Each one of the children relates to the stage – which is a accompanied by dozens of chairs, varying in size – with a different approach.

Although some moments seem a little heavy on the improvisation, the overall choreography, combined with the stellar musical production, makes this show a lovely atmospheric experience, and very much worth watching.
