Third Eye Centre, Glasgow, Fri 15 & Sat 16 Sept.

Pearlman and Allen were last seen at the Third Eye two years ago, when they pertormed their own piece entitled That Was Fast, and indeed it was. Energetic and vibrant, the two danced together with a powerful mutual understanding, whirling across the stage in a vital and believable pertormance.

The New Yorkers return with a tusion ot dance and poetry in The Charlie Stories, a crime fiction in which characterisation is drawn through movement. The author 01 the story, represented by the voice oi actor Tom Caylo, provides a loose narration while the two dancers portray Charlie, Angel and the landlady, in what looks set to be a similarly dynamic performance.
