The short shows that run for much of their seasons in tandem at the Blue Room Theatre may not be designed as double bills, but seeing both in one night, as I did, is an interesting way to go about it.
While neither the aerialist Dawn Pascoe’s She Dances in the Dark nor the Clap Your Hands Collective’s When We Wake reaches the brilliant heights of the theatre’s recent productions of Scent Tales and Laryngectomy, both have their rewards.
