Review from Chongqing
Extracts from a wonderful review by Chongqing News (cqnews.net) as Heartbeat of Home debuted in Chongqing Grand Theater on November 6.
Heartbeat of Home, Its fantastic dance moves, dynamic rhythm and dream-like staging brought the audience through an incredible visual and audio experience that touched everyone’s heart.
…the dancers …standing in a line, jumping in the air and hitting the floor 300 times a minute … with the rapid pace of Latin bass, Panamanian piano and Cuban drums, the passionate and energetic Irish tap dance ignited the entire theatre … as the audience exclaimed!
In addition to the exciting dance, the live band also brought a special skill of instant mood change to the audience. They performed with the traditional Irish bagpipes, Spanish guitar mix drums and electric bass. This one moment you are at a vast moorland and the next you seem to relocate to a bullring in Spain.
Heartbeat of Home turns the stage into an illusional space with the help of high-tech and visual effects. The rare yet beautiful scenes, together with its perfect and authentic stage setting, touches everyone’s heart.
