FRINGE REVIEW: Spiritualarious– a Quiet Hour

Monday Magazine's Theatre Critic reviews Spiritualarious

Expect the unexpected!  The Fringe is always a grab-bag of oddities, which is part of it annual charm.

Unfortunately Wood Hall was almost empty the first night of this show, so those of us in there felt quite self-conscious; especially as we found ourselves in an actual yoga class!

Amit Solanki was our teacher – low-key, gentle and kind as he led us through our breathing exercises. His voice was quiet and restful – perhaps he would speak louder and more clearly to an auditorium full of people.  The show was advertized as being a comedy, which it actually was not, though I did chuckle when he told us he taught ‘gluten-free yoga.’  But in all the frenetic activity of the Fringe, there are worse ways to spend 55 minutes than relaxing the body and concentrating on the soul.

Spiritualarious has five more performances at Wood Hall (907 Pandora in the Victoria Conservatory of Music) during the Fringe Festival.
