up close and personal,
darting in and around the
theatre, in this intimate
dance that deals with fear
and transformation. Blue

quiet discomfort before

Blue Room Theatre,
We’d be lying if we said
we didn’t have a bit in
common with Peter Pan,
the boy who just won’t
grow up. That’s what
makes this story a classic,
and the WA Ballet’s
production, with amazing
dancing and a picture
A familiar story of generational culture-clash gets
a fresh update from new-age Bollywood. It’s colourful,
vibrant and super-high-energy. We dare you to walk
out with a frown. Regal Theatre, Oct 22-Nov 1.

Merchants of Bollywood, we wouldn’t be surprised:

hop and theatre is pretty addictive. To get in on the
Bollywood dance action, try one of these classes.

No Lights No Lycra
“No matter how uninhibited you might think you dance at a nightclub or a bar, it’s
nothing compared to this,” says Casey Campbell on No Lights No Lycra’s dance party in
the dark. “It’s much more childlike, you do really silly things that you wouldn’t normally
do, like an embarrassing conga line or crazy twists and turns to classical music.” Casey
went to her first No Lights No Lycra in Melbourne expecting it to be a “a bit too hippy”.
Instead, she found down-to-earth people, dancing to unpretentious music and having
an amazing time. “It wasn’t until I was about five minutes in that I felt this shift... I felt
something happen and I started to really let go and enjoy myself in front of a group of
people I didn’t know.” It’s no wonder she decided to bring it to WA in a North Perth
chapel. Since then it’s spread through WA to Fremantle, Margaret River, and Esperance,
as well as international cities such as Brooklyn, Paris and Shanghai. nolightsnolycra.com.
