Dance Bear Dance
By Lyn Gardner for The Guardian


Infuriating and exhilarating, frustrating and liberating, Shunt's examination of subversive actions and conspiracy theories has long periods when it seems to be rambling along - as well as some moments that are more exciting and surprising than anything you will see in the theatre this year. This is one piece of theatre that goes with a bang.

Even to try to explain it would be to spoil the shock effect of this unique evening; suffice it to say, it begins with the audience being ushered into a small space dominated by an oval conference table.

More physical theatre than dance, but Hey! We're eclectic here:

Strange bruin
Far from the West End, a new form of theatre is emerging. By Stephen Armstrong


Shunt’s Dance Bear Dance takes place underneath a railway line in Bethnal Green. As the audience arrive, they are given name tags and sit around a table for the final briefing before a bomb goes off. The mood is absurd, with the ringleaders sounding like militants from an Ionesco play. As the plot dissolves, Shunt pull off theatrical coups so astonishing that the audience can barely believe they really happened and — gasp — we actually start talking to each other.
