Siro-A
The Concourse
Chatswood, AUS
January 14, 2017

Siro-A are from Sendai, Japan, and their name apparently translates to something along the lines of “difficult to pin down” – a telling name as their show would prove.

Touted as multi-media “digital techno circus,” the seven constituents that make the performance group Siro-A have created a unique, upbeat mélange of highly choreographed dance arrangements, mime, precision, music and technology.

Front and rear video projections, an extensive light show as well as digital animations blend seamlessly in with the troupe’s dance theatre routines and deliberately blur the dividing lines between reality, illusion, imagination and technology.

Homages and re-enactments of famous scenes from movies and arcade games, visuals, play acting and incorporating the audience into the performance via cameras and projections make every show an immersive occurrence with a sense of spontaneity.
Siro-A ‘s show is based on timing and minute planning all the while making it seem like a playful effortless effort garnished with humour and deliberately crossing and defying genres.

Each performer brings his own personality to the show and adds a colourful layer, the sum of which create a doorway that transports the audience into another world.

At times one cannot help but feel in tune with Kevin Flynn, the main protagonist in the 1982 science fiction opus Tron: We witness Siro-A perform inside the software world of a mainframe computer where they interact with both the virtual reality while communicating and interacting with the audience.

A clever show pushing the envelope of conventional dance theatre and performance art, while creating a sense of wonder and transcending language and appealing to all ages.
