Super Sunday - 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 05, Aug 2019
We open with a somewhat odd set-up. A giant white curtain, torn and dirty in places and then our performers appear, on what looks like homemade horses, come out on their knees. A funny interaction later, I think I know exactly what this show is going to be. I am wrong.
From dancing with a sledgehammer (how do you even practice for that?), a see-saw routine that really gets the heart racing, trampolining with a colourful surprise, a machine that the man behind me described as “not looking safe” launching our heroes through the air to an adorable bear that you pray ends up ok, nun-chuck action and so much more that the hour really does ‘fly’ by, culminating in an intense and potentially deadly finale that I won’t spoil here.
These adrenaline junkies take the audience on a white knuckle ride to truly understand the meaning of balance and gravity. I’m not sure how many times I gasped, winced, clapped, whooped and cheered, but it was more than during any other show I can remember. This truly is an Edinburgh Fringe must-see!
A high flying, adrenaline rush that all ages will love. If you see once circus show at the Edinburgh festival fringe this year, see Super Sunday and you won’t be disappointed!
