Witness four performers intertwine and connect, to bring this classic video game to life right in front of your eyes!
Watch as this highly-skilled acrobatic quartet navigate not only the stage but each other, twisting and interlocking to communicate with and create new meanings for their bodies.
Designed to get children involved, this participatory work invites younger audiences and their parents on stage to imitate the troupe and create moves of their own!
“The fascinated stares and open mouths in the audience said it all.” The Scotsman
“It’s inventive. It’s engaging. It’s impressive… it is a perfect example of how dance can be used to engage and entertain younger audiences – and their parents – without being patronising or over-simplistic.” A Younger Theatre
“Tetris might be based on a vintage video game but it’s a low-tech, stripped back, pure movement performance that’s full of life and warmth, and it is often very funny.” In Daily, Adelaide
“The joyous closing sequence has most of the audience onstage moving and dancing and the buzz is electric. Arch8 shows us that together we can do just about anything and have a great time doing it.” Dominion Post, NZ
