As storyteller and dancer, Denise Yeo tells the audience at the beginning, this show is an improvised conversation between words and music and embodied in movement. Adapted from a Siberian myth, it tells the story of a hunter and a mysterious Fox Woman who enters his hut in the forest and brings him joy and laughter – until reality crashes down on them both.
Yeo’s dancing is seasoned and passionate, soliciting several shouts of "Olé!" from those I saw the show with. Most impressive is flamenco guitarist Gareth Owen, whose fingers and sense of rhythm are the heartbeat of the story. It may have been an improv, but Owen makes it look seamless. The pair (who are married) shine together, showing the same love and care as the hunter and Fox Woman.
At times the show takes itself a little too seriously but for anyone interested in Flamenco, this is for you. — Niigaan Sinclair
