Remembering The Oscars
Remembering The Oscars
with Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara
“If this kind of show floats your boat - you’ll love it”
Strictly Come Dancing professionals perform their own live touring shows with startling regularity. And why not? Without the status and popularity that the television show brings them, how many people would honestly say they would go and watch a 2-hour dance show? This has resulted in making dance a must-see theatrical event - the bonus being that fans get to see their favourites live on stage.
Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara have created their own franchise. Their first touring show was Remembering Fred, then came Remembering The Movies. Last year they were set to tour this show - Remembering The Oscars. Sadly, of course, all the venues closed. But they haven’t been twiddling their thumbs during lockdown! Instead, with an imaginative production team, they have planned the live tour for 2022 and produced this taster for online streaming.
With a strong ensemble of eight excellent dancers, Aljaž and Janette trundle through some of their favourite Oscar winners, sometimes creating medleys like the Disney routine - because there is so much to choose from!
I really like Strictly, yet always get annoyed when the cameras zoom around the dancers, thereby not allowing me to see the actual dancing. Sdaly, this does happen a lot in this show - but, when you do get to see the routines and the exciting choreography by Gareth Walker, it’s worth it. Special mention must go to the singers Giovanni Spanó and the gorgeous Janine Johnson.
Of course, as this is a taster of the live show to come next year - the full show will be amazing! If this kind of show floats your boat - you’ll love it.
