This is an Irish dance show for the more discerning and appreciative audience. The two principls are as ever, superb. Colin Dunne comes into his own on this show and Jean Butler is as ever, incomparable. Tony Kemp also plays his role effectively, glowering, dismay then resignation evident in his demeanour.
The camers work on the DVD is far better than the hopelessly frenetic cut cut cut of the other shows mentioned. There is more tracking a dancer as they move so you have some idea of the dancing involved. The music is excellent if understated and compliments the steps perfectly.
Let's face it, it was impossible to watch Lord of the Dance particularly and Riverdance (with Mr Flatley involved) without being faintly embarrassed at his gurning showboatery, pseudo boxing movements on the former and self-aggrandisement generally. Dancing on Dangerous Ground is a proper Irish dance show, exhibiting the skill of all of its dancers with no laser shows etc. Alas, the world was not ready for such simple pleasure and the show ended.
I recommend watching this show to anyone who appreciates quality Irish dancing, excellent music and great production. Quite apart from that, it is Irish dancing on DVD where the ubiquitous Flatley is not present. This is a boon.
One of my all time favourites together with Riverdance,Lord of the Dance. Rhythm of the Dance and Gaelforce and many others.
Here you see the wonderfull work of Collin Dunne and Jean Butler.
Too bad that the show didn't make it and many of us weren't able to see the show.
Let me tell you:
It's a breathtaking performance with all aspects of Irish Dance in it.Some very high speed dance numbers are just too good for words.
Here is where you see the talent of the dancers and ofcourse the talent of Jean and Collin.
My advise: If you haven't seen the show or don't owe a copy, it's very worthwhile getting one.
From an old Irish love legend.
A long "making-of" (about one hour), with subtitles, is very, very interesting (and sincere).
Makes a very good pair with "Riverdance".
I would advice to buy it, before it gets impossible to be foynd.
