Siro-A Technodelic Visual Show

A couple of weekends ago, we had the pleasure of attending Siro-A Technodelic Visual Show in Leicester Square Theatre in London.

Although we watched the youtube video before the show, we were not too sure what to expect and whether we would all enjoy it as a family.

I must say we all loved it, and within only a few minutes, we were convinced that Siro-A was one of the best shows we have ever seen.

When we arrived at the theatre, a “tube-man” walked around and greeted the audience, making us feel very welcome.

Then he started filming the audience with a live feed to a large screen, adding funny animations to a few people from the crowd. It was quite entertaining and we started laughing before the show started.

If you haven’t heard of SIRO-A, it is an exciting six strong performance group from Sendai, Japan, who have wowed audiences all over the world and are now, for the first time, bringing their unique performance style to London.

The name SIRO-A, derived from the Japanese word ‘SIRO’ meaning white or colourless, means to belong to no group or impossible to define. And tough to define they are!

Siro-A perfectly fuse modern technology with mime, breath-taking optical illusions, movement and comedy all set to a pulsating electro beat.

This visually stunning show performed to 30,000 people at the Shanghai Expo and won the Spirit of the Fringe award at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival. Spectacular family entertainment fusing video mapping, laser lights and on stage DJ’s to create entertainment for the next generation.

Now for the first time SIRO-A bring their physical extravaganza to London to the main house of the Leicester Square Theatre from 1st Feb – 22nd April 2013.

It felt like we were out clubbing as there was a clever mix of electronic tunes by the live DJs at their decks onstage.

Siro-A is a very clever show, it makes references to several well-known brands and computer games. The animated human performances are amazing and we have never seen anything like it before.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed watching Siro-A and it is highly recommended for a fun family day out in London. Tickets can be purchased from http://leicestersquaretheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873489891/events

West End Theatre Christmas Season: Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt

3 Comments

Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt, Third West End Christmas Show, is currently showing in London at the Criterion Theatre until 6th January!

We had the pleasure to go and see Peppa Pig before Christmas and little man had a great time. He was really excited as soon as I told him back about Peppa Pig’s Christmas Show in November and he couldn’t wait to see his favourite characters Peppa and George live.

On the day, little man was really excited. He couldn’t stop talking about Peppa Pig and he was counting the hours to the afternoon show.

Peppa Pig’s second live stage production proved to be a huge success on its travels the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland in 2011 – 2012, with sell-out performances wherever it went.

This enduringly popular production for younger children opened at the Criterion Theatre on Thursday 6 December, giving Peppa Pig her third consecutive Christmas season at the West End venue, and runs to 6 January.

The Peppa Pig stage-show has a very successful track record at the Criterion Theatre, where for the past two Christmas seasons Peppa Pig has played to packed houses (2010 and 2011), breaking all the theatre’s previous advance box office records. Her first stage tour, Peppa Pig’s Party, was also one of the top-selling children’s theatre shows in 2010 and 2011.

In Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt Peppa Pig and her friends set off on a new adventure, a treasure hunt. Peppa, her brother George and friend Danny Dog get up to fun and games on a day out on Granddad Dog’s boat. There are clues aplenty as Pedro Pony, Polly Parrot and Zoe Zebra help them find their treasure as they all enjoy a day of adventure. Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt features true-to-life puppets, sing-along songs and a story that will charm and delight all her fans.

The director is Richard Lewis who has also adapted the show for stage. He has many acclaimed children’s stage shows to his credit, including Fimbles, the two LazyTown Live! tours (2007/08 and 2009) and the current tour of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, which premiered in October 2012.

Little man had a lovely time and he really enjoyed Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt. The show was very interactive and little man was joining in during the whole show. I must say that daddy and I were enjoying it too and had a great afternoon!

Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt is produced by Fiery Angel and Limelight Productions, the team behind the recent tours of LazyTown Live!, Roald Dahl’s The BFG, the first Peppa Pig tour, Peppa Pig’s Party and the current tour of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom.

I know how busy it gets in the run up to Christmas and between Christmas and New Year, probably you haven’t had much spare time lately. It is quite handy that the kids go back to school next week, so there is still a few days left of the school holiday.

If you haven’t had the chance to see Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt yet, make sure you get down to the Criterion Theatre before Sunday. It’s a lovely production and guaranteed fun to the whole family!
