Description

A kung fu contemporary circus. The philosophy of international kung fu star Bruce Lee is redefined on stage by integrating Cantonese opera with kung fu, acrobatics, parkour, tricking and dance. An incredibly energetic and entertaining performance with rich cultural overtones. Along has toured China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. A show that you cannot afford to miss this Fringe!

One of the most spellbinding peices of physical theatre I have seen. Both comical and emotional. Not just the typical Kung fu style, very imaginative use of choreography. Leaves you with a very important message at the end.

I had an excellent time, thank you to all the performers.

Absolutely outstanding, fast-pa ed show and really talented performers. I loved the Bruce Lee voice over and response and the little bits of humour. One note is that they use the show, very powerfully, to talk about the current situation in Hong Kong. What they did brought tears to my eyes. However we did have younger children with us and had to try and explain police violence to them. It was a good, teachable moment, but perhaps a little frightening for younger children. Kudos to them for raising the profile of such a terrible situation and for their spectacular show.

Sardines Magazine (5/5 stars) 90 days ago

The Edinburgh Fringe is a great place to see dance, circus and all other performance styles; but few of the overtly political shows on offer will have come even near the impact of this unforgettable piece. Although the Edinburgh run is over, the cast are continuing to tour and will do much to take their important story to those who may not know enough about it.

The Hong Kong kung fu-cum-Cantonese opera acrobatic dance show Along (does that say it all? Not quite) is like plunging into a mental bath....

Deadline News (4/5 stars) 95 days ago

Celebrating the culture of Hong Kong, Hugh Cho’s hit show Along made some powerful statements in this year’s production. The majority of the performance was simply a display of acrobatics, dance and kung fu, but once that was done, there was a brief afterword about Hong Kong and the protests that have dominated news headlines in recent months.
