Evolve is an exciting show based around discovery! The show begins with the main character being swallowed into a book. In this new world, we travel back in time and watch previous achievements, inventions and discoveries throughout our history. These entertaining, highly skilled dancers are, available to hire for corporate parties, balls, product launch parties, film premieres, anniversaries and weddings.
Stunning images are created with the performers’ bodies such as a horse and cart; An Egyptian sphinx; Newton discovering gravity with a large apple tree; A steam train; A large windmill; A car; Plane; Space travel and of course a rocket so our main character can walk on the moon!
Then we reach the digital age with an interactive ‘Minority Report’ screen that references Wi-Fi, tablets, phones, cameras & gadgets. The tempo of the show speeds up towards the finale as the acrobats perform gymnastic tumbles, group pyramids and high lifts. The bodies create the word INSPIRE before completely disappearing. The book re-appears and the main character makes their way out of it and back into reality. She watches as a ball of light also makes it’s way out of the book and then lands in her hands. The final image is of the performer dancing with the ball of light above before the screen fades to black
The show is about our past achievements, our growth and looking optimistically forward to our future. Together, what can we achieve next? It just takes one idea..
Evolve is an inspiring show set to an uplifting soundtrack, your guests will absolutely love it and leave feeling exhilarated! Our audience reaction speaks for itself!

“The event went well, and all of the performers were absolutely fantastic, incredibly professional, flexible and accommodating. They put up with our rather chaotic and constantly-changing schedule and they were a real pleasure to work with. I told all of them after the event how incredibly grateful we were, but will you please pass that on to them again from us. Their performances were really fantastic and I know that the audience enjoyed the entertainment immensely. May I also say a huge thank you to you, Archie and everyone at Contraband, you were all incredibly helpful and worked amazingly hard to help us out. I know that our Secretary General was very happy with the performers and with your professionalism. Thank you! We very much hope to work with you again in the future. Once again, thank you so much for all of your hard work.”
