Amazing Dance, Song & Music, the story well interpreted perfectly
Amazing show. So well choreographed. A must see. 5 stars
Still coming down from, the high. I wanted to stay and dance the night away. An engaging thought provoking narrative from beginning to end. Performed by masterful dancers, with power combined with graceful movement combined. Awestruck!
Message in a Bottle was amazing. Loved every minute of it. Choreography was brilliant and story line was captivating. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing, magical!
Thought provoking and highly charged. A must to see. Incredible 2 hours. Thank you
fantastic emotive dancing set the the lovliest soundtrack. i was entranced throughout the entire show.
An outstanding evening for anyone who enjoys modern contemporary dance with the music provided by Sting. A heartbreaking interpretation of humanitarian crisis and the way the world responds. It was inspirational and thought provoking.
Brilliant from start to finish - choreography superb as is the cast. The Music fantastic, sound excellent. What more can I say - you wont be disappointed
I was transfixed from start to finish, just amazing. A very powerful and emotional performance delivered by some very talented people. Truly brilliant.
Great performance, just wanted to jump o the stage and join the dancers!
What a fantastic performance. The dancers were truly amazing and off course Stings music was brilliant.
Wow, what a fabulous show! Being a big Sting fan, plus my love for dance. I was in Heaven! The story so moving, the dancers so awesome . Amazing!!!!!
I’d seen a good review but it was only 4 stars - it should, in our opinion, have been 5! The dancing is absolutely incredible- beautifully portraying a myriad of emotions with huge energy and sensitivity. Knowing and pre-loving all the music was a plus for us, and to see it brought together in such a poignant and timely depiction of the plight of refugees from war-torn countries was a powerful and unforgettable experience. Bravo to all concerned, and so much respect to the amazing Zoonation dancers. Just Wow!
This show was absolutely amazing. I was in awe of how a story could be portrayed without any words being said (aside from the lyrics of Sting). Very thought provoking and it is clear to see how talented the whole cast are. Absolutely worth a watch, it is a must see and no doubt this show will be famous in months to come!
Loved the show, great music and all the dancers were amazing. Such fantastic energy, what’s not to love!
It’s a gripping and humbling story, set to fantastic music but the choreography and the talent of the dancers is what mesmerises. We were transfixed, uplifted and inspired; so much so that we came twice.
Wonderful dance and music
Amazing talented dancers, breathtaking, brilliant and Sting’s music sounded so good. Must see it!
Absolutely amazing! The dancers and choreography are incredible. I have to go again!
Excellent High Energy Performance. Dancers really looked as though they were enjoying themselves which created a wonderful atmosphere. Truly wonderful. Would highly recommend
My granny took me to this and I thought it was amazing! There wasn't a single moment where I wasn't mesmerized and wowed at this show. Every scene was extremely well put together and clever, and it was very inspirational.
I booked these tickets as my husband liked the music of Sting however he does not like ballet or dance shows. He loved it and couldn't believe how brilliant the dancing was. I would recommend this to anyone whether you like dance or not.
Fantastic cast, fabulous moves , a must see production .
Amazing energy, choreography, talent and stories! An uplifting show and perfect match with Sting’s music. I loved every minute and highly recommend this show.
Excellent! Thoroughly enjoyed this dance to Sting’s music. Brilliant second half and ending. Highly recommended show.
The show was amazing , fabulous, incredible full of talent and much much better than expected, fully recommended , we have enjoyed it very much xx
Beautiful, absorbing and incredible
Amazing show full of high octane energy from a dancing machine. Such amazing talent and creative choreography set to the beautiful and emotional music of Sting. Very empowering and incredibly entertaining. I didn't want it to end! You must see.
Stunning, absolutely brilliant, cleverly set to Sting’s great music and breathtaking dancing. If this doesn’t make you feel good, you must be made of stone. Sensational.
Amazing show. Having watched contemporary dance on various TV shows we though we would finally book a live performance. It exceeded our expectations. Truly talented dancers who conveyed a powerful story. Highly recommend.
Such a moving and engaging spectacle. Loved this show. I got the impression that some of the audience had been before. I would go again.
Absolutely loved it!! Fantastic.
Looking for something different this is it. No talking contempory dance. Full of Sting/ Police hits. A refugees Story A must see.
I was overwhelmed by the brilliance of this show. probably the best thing I have seen in ages. The whole cast were amazing, their talent, musicality, acting, physicality and athleticism all came together to give such a fabulous performance. The cast were enhanced by fantastic stage lighting and minimal props. congratulations to all concerned. Of course the music was brilliant and brought back memories.
Very moving. Fluid dancing. Masses of energy. Really loved this. Nice theatre too.
If you are a fan of Sting and the Police and also dance then this is a must see show. Very energetic and high quality dance throughout the performance to all of Sting and the Police greatest hits.
Stunning, superb! Electric! Just booked to see it again! Fabulous!
Such energy and skill full dance to a great list of songs, some original and some reworked classics ..... as for the dancers and choreographers not sure words can describe “stunning” will do ..... a must see !
I can honestly say I have never seen such superb dancing and story telling! From the opening joy of the family all together, through their trials and tragedies and then ultimately their new lives, I was enthralled. I lost count of the amount of times I had chills. The story is so current and real and you felt for them all throughout and the sadness of leaving their homes and being thrust into an "alien" world. And another highlight was recognising Lukas from seeing him triumph in the televised dance competition a few years ago when I absolutely fell in love with his style and expressive face. I must give special mention to the "mother" who was just superb and the young girl playing Lukas's new wife. When he found her again, I just sobbed! And then the ending which after all their sadness, was joyful and a celebration of their family memories. The musical arrangements of Sting's original music were perfect and made me fall in love with his music all over again. If I could, I would come back every night. Words can't express how much I loved every second. Congratulations and thank you for an evening I will never forget.
Exceptional story telling from the most talented cast of dancers I have ever seen. Well worth a visit.
Not sure what I was expecting but my this show exceeded any expectations I had. The music was fab but then that was why I booked it but the way the dance choreographer used the word of the song to build the story in dance was amazing. I loved every minute of it and do not know how the dancer danced so passionately for the amount of time they were on stage. Fantastic, that is all I have to say and well done to everyone.
A beautiful expression of emotional storytelling through dance and music. Extremely clever body movements corresponding with lyrics, wrapped up in stunning music and stage light projections. Current affairs are creatively portrayed in this is dynamic, must-see theatre performance.
A spectacular, energetic modern dance performance of a powerful current story. Fantastic soundtrack. See this show.
In London for my wife’s birthday. Saw the poster on the underground. Booked it as she loves the music. Didn’t realise it was contemporary dance. Absolutely loved it. What a surprise. Such stamina and beautiful interpretation of the music. We had seen Luzia by Cirque du Soleil the day before and enjoyed this performance just as much.
I loved every minute.
I’m not normally much of a dance enthusiast, but my wife is a massive fan of Sting and his music, so I thought this might be an interesting event. It was way beyond interesting, it was magnificent. We were enthralled throughout. Lots of reworking of great songs and some outrageous dancing/gymnastics with a powerful and poignant message underlying the whole thing. Absolutely excellent, and I’d recommend it to anyone.
An amazing performance with incredible talent from the choreography to the sheer skill of the performers. A great sound track that worked well with the story line and again by the cast. Very pleased that we got the chance to experience the show and the elation it has left with us. Thank You!
