Riot


'Riot' is a performance at this year's Sydney Festival. This is an Irish troupe of eleven front house performers and presumably numerous behind scenes technical support. It is a variety show ranging from lewd suggestiveness to political and inspirational messages. They are singers, dancers, gymnasts, drag artists and rappers.

There is a little bit of something for almost everyone (as long as you are an adult). I found the preachiness of some of the elements disruptive to the tempo of the rest of the show but otherwise enjoyed the show.
