Baton twirling, sexy outfits and neurotic outbursts of inner monolgues brought to life in Brigette DePape's latest installment to the Winnipeg Fringe. The show starts with a humorous synopsis of a day in the life of a baton twirler. Within minutes, you are spiralled into the crazy non-adventures of reclusive and paranoid young girl.
If you're confused now...it gets better. Engaging in a variety of conversations with her 'metal sticks', you are left torn between feeling sorry for her and offering her a ritalin. In my opinion. this is the best installment yet from DePape and offers a fantastic 45 minute rollercoaster of emotion.
The only concern that I have is the show builds and builds leaving the audience suspensful of what is to happen next, and is suddenly halted with a very abrupt climax. At this point I am left beging for more only to have the lights come up and finale music play.
All in all this show is a must see and is highly recommended to any and everyone. Enjoy.
