All the family will be captivated by a journey of beauty, laughs, and joy from this skilled troop of male dancers.
Tutu is a healing artwork that examines gender boundaries in dance and rejects them with humour and forgiveness.
For centuries men have won easy laughs by climbing into a dress. Tutu transcends the take by letting men climb beyond the clothes to examine the complexities of adopting the female form to communicate beauty, joy, love, and laughter. Sometimes they do this while wearing a tutu.
Tutu is therapy for anyone who feels restricted by expectations. The show offers slapstick and philosophy in the same breath. It is ambitious and achieves its ambition. Audiences will be thrilled with the pace, purpose, and costumes, and leave filled with the joy the troop offers.
Join Tutu on a hilarious journey, a tribute to dance, where comedy and incredible dance skills intertwine seamlessly. Featuring an all-male cast of six dancers decked out in ever-changing flamboyant costumes. Choreographed by Philippe Lafeuille, Tutu pays homage to the dance world that can sometimes take itself a little too seriously. In Tutu, no one is safe from his playful eye, as he shatters stereotypes and makes dance accessible to all. Yes, a bare-chested tutu-clad man can perform a stunningly graceful pointe solo! Tutu is a celebration of dance in all its glory!

About guest reviews
Edinburgh Reviews does sometimes accept guest reviews. We ask that all such contributions are from people without a family, friend or business connection to the show or business being reviewed and unique to us. Why? We want to reflect what the people of Edinburgh think and appreciate great finds and reviews from talented writers like Harrie, but we don’t want to be used by marketers/PR/SEOs. The editor is a full-time marketer, and you can read ER’s PR policy if you fancy.
