White Caps

Last Night Weekend Autopsy went to the Bristol Old Vic to see one of the sold out series of performances by the Dance company Champloo. White Caps is an epic piece of B-Boy inspired contemporary dance that fuses multimedia and performance to great effect. The opening sequence utilizes a stage size screen and some fantastic high speed photography creating a powerful, almost naturalistic three dimentional feel. This screen continues to encase the dancers on stage performances whilst allowing the audience to be transported back and forth from the stage to wonderful series on location performances thought the UK. White Caps is a fantastic marriage of B-Boy aesthetic, contemporary dance and cinematic polish, that manages to move and excite.
