The first play of any festival risks the chance of being forgotten by the end of it but ‘Break Out: Extreme Dance Comedy’ that opened the The Hindu MetroPlus Theatre Festival will not suffer that fate. It destroyed every stereotype of dance and theatre that I knew. I loved how the spotlights were used and the way the play so seamlessly shifted from the stage to the audience. The visual panels on the side were mildly distracting but admittedly necessary. Judging from the hoots and applause, except for when the play slowed down a little around the 50th minute, it was definitely a play that will be remembered for a while to come!
