All Quiet on the Western Front 2017 Edinburgh Fringe T T T T T +
I had seen this play at last year’s Fringe Festival and had to see it again. The performance of the 5 lads was just as impressive as I remembered it last year. A must see for anyone visiting the Fringe! Brilliant Must See !.
Incognito first burst onto the Fringe back in 2014 with their sell out show “Government Inspector”.
This year is the century year of the Battle of the Somme, Incognito theatre revives Erich Maria Remarque’s classic tale that exposes the mental and physical strain of trench warfare. Adapting the story in their trademark physical style, Incognito harnesses the tragic energy of Remarque’s novel and creates a stunningly poetic , poignant and expressionistic theatrical experience in order to tell the breaking story of the German soldiers who fought on the Western Front during the Great War.The production consists of an ensemble of 5 boys who all give a superb performance that reduces you to tears. The choreography of the play is just outstanding and well rehearsed resulting in a smooth performance that allows the audience to immerse in the emotions of the story.
An incredibly physical performance and easily one of the best shows at the Ed Fringe this year!!
