'The Aluminum Show' flashed brightly into JAX

For those of you who have never experienced the sights, sounds and interactions of “The Aluminum Show”, then you’re in for a treat.  After seeing this show, it is likened to that of the Blue Man Group or Stomp, except with a shiny difference.  It wasn’t a very long show, nonetheless, it was packed with excitement and screams of delight from the audience both young and mature alike.  The Aluminum Show came to the Times Union Center in JAX for one night, yet they should have stayed for a longer engagement.

Are they earthlings or did they come from outer space?  The music and chorography is very futuristic and yet nostalgic.  Metallic tubes, suspended from the ceiling, rolled across the stage and then out into the audience.  The dancers are contortionists who bend their bodies like that of wet noodles.  As you will see in one of the photos, they will even get up close and personal.  There’s a lesson to be learned and a story that is told throughout the performance.  It’s almost like Dancing With the Stars, Riverdance or a little ballet inside aluminum tubing or waltzing with silver balloons.

Check this link to see when and where the troupe will be coming to a city near you in 2017.  They might even return to JAX if you mention it to The Artist Series.
