The tickets are selling fast! I managed to catch their unique performance at the HiJump theatre in Seoul last July. It was fun and funny. Breakout is a powerful non-verbal extreme dance comedy which had performed in Broadway, West End, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Shanghai Arts Theatre, Bangkok and others.
Breakout was a sellout in Singapore last February. It was jointly premiered by Mediacorp. Theatre lovers should not miss this unique opportunity.
