Description "It is really, really pushing it to designate The Show Must go On as dance, which is one of its delightful provocations. Many of the casually clad performers would fail a skin-fold test and although they do a highly credible macarena, the rest of the movement doesn't bother to rise to any kind of professional standard. Yet I have never been part of an audience more delighted with and engaged by a contemporary dance-theatre piece."
