Last week, the Fusion Fighters, described by an anonymous representative of the group as “an elite performance crew, utilising and combining various characteristics of dance, music, comedy, technology and film” released a video on YouTube that prompted laughter, awe and a little confusion.
Who are these dancers in combat gear, faces covered, waving swards through the air?
They’re “world class dancers, each a leader in their respective field, who have been trained to combine multiple high energy dance disciplines,” the representative said. “Without ever revealing their true identities, each project the Fusion Fighters undertake will involve advanced performance video technology, breathtaking choreography and a limitless range of music collaboration, creating a mysterious and elusive vibe and spectacular performances.”
The Fusion Fighters will make their live performance debut Sunday (St. Patrick’s Day) in London’s Trafalgar Square.
