V.1 - John Hirsch Mainstage 
Venturing into the rhythmic world of the BAMBOO, the SYNERGY dance production showcases different dances from various parts of Asia. Watch the strategic swiftness and focus of the dancers as they go in and out of clapping bamboos. As the rhythm and music change from country to country, one thing remains the same. Come along with us as we embrace the bamboo dances from the Philippines, India and Malaysia, along with some singing and hip-hop dance performance for a treat.

Synergy Dance Production—John Hirsch Mainstage

The emcee, the opening intro and the set makes this feel like a Folklorama show, rather than a Fringe show, not that that’s bad. On the contrary, it’s good. They’re good; they’re very good. It just doesn’t have a Fringe feel sitting in the audience; it feels a bit out of place.

Similarly, the opening singing act seems a bit out of place. They have great voices; they just don’t fit with the rest of the show.

As for the rest of the show, it’s full of energy and fun. They’re exciting to watch and they’re loaded with talent. If you can’t have fun watching this show, you can’t have fun.
