This was the UK premiere of the Italian choreographer’s work Surprised Body Project, which is intellectually provocative, emotionally stimulating – and enormous fun. The piece,  developed by Norway’s Wee company and featuring British trio Luke Divall, Ben McEwen and Tiia Ojala, was backed by a striking percussion-driven score played live, which added an extra layer of enjoyment for the audience at Greenwich’s Borough Hall who were already enraptured by this fascinating, relentlessly physical exploration of movement and space and the ebb and flow of existential coalescence and separation. And the Superman gag at the end was priceless.
