WHAT PEOPLE SAY
It’s her abilities as a performer that really convince. Already given a glimpse of her vision through the ever-changing graphics projected onto three walls of the theatre, Seb also makes full use of the space to use dance as another entry point into her message. Seeing the colours and shapes gives her story a physical presence; they accompany a set of songs that take inspiration from myriad genres, from the disco-inspired drive of Feel The Music to the RnB vibes of Ice Cream. You sense that Seb has let the narrative lead the way, making decisions based on what the lyrics require to best convey the story. Her gorgeous voice, sweet and emphatic, brings it together.
