FEATHERED AND FIERCE
2 SHOWS LEFT – FRIDAY 8th & SATURDAY 9th SEPTEMBER!
Review by Roswitha Schleicher – Sydney Events writer for The Australia Times News
Producer Lauren Eisinger and samba sensation Amy Mills take their audience on an emotional journey as they invite them behind the scenes of the glamorous world of samba, in their bold new show Feathered and Fierce.
Stage One at the HPG Festival Hub lays bare, with black curtains usually shielding curious eyes, drawn, blending with the infinite darkness of this vast space, in contrast with the blaze of stage lights.
As the eight performers enter the stage in what appears to be Amazonian inspired ensembles, anticipation rises and the crowd falls silent. Just a few beats into animated samba tunes and the Amy Mills Samba Pro Team bust out a few of their signature dance moves, raising cheers from the audience. And thus, our hour long journey through the dazzling world of samba begins.
Thoughtfully choreographed by World Solo Samba Champion Amy Mills, Feathered & Fierce reveals a story of passion and dedication through the world of Latin dance. With multiple on-stage costume changes and numerous moving performances accompanied by a contemporary playlist, Amy and her team lead their audience on a journey, unveiling the various aspects and emotional ups and downs of preparing for the big samba stage.
This unique show is every bit as personal and mesmerising as producer Lauren Eisinger intended, and has proven to be one of the ‘must-see’ performances of this year’s Sydney Fringe Festival.
