Fruit Flies Like a Banana: World Tour

The Fourth Wall—Tom Hendry Warehouse

This trio of talented musicians take the audience on a world tour by performing 15 different pieces related to 15 different countries or parts of the world. If they did nothing but play the music it would have been a great show. However, they amp up the difficulty and maximise the entertainment value by also performing often complex movement and using some interesting set pieces and their instruments as props to make a visual complement for each piece of music.

The sold-out crowd is shown exactly what they are in for with the first piece, a version of The Minute Waltz from Chopin (representing Poland), where all three zoom onto the stage on hoverboards. If you can imagine the RCMP Musical Ride performed by people on hoverboards instead of horses, all while playing a flute (Hilary Abigana), bass trombone (C. Neil Parsons) and accordion (Greg Jukes) it will give you some idea of the precise and amazing choreography involved.

The order of the set is determined by the audience, to add to the interaction.

I would describe the feeling after seeing the show as just “pure joy”.
