"If there had been an applause meter on the premises, the meter would have very likely swung off the high end...An irrepressible, irreverent bunch of nicely ill-assorted sizes and presences, the men were impressive in their comic timing and knowledge of dance style."
- Jennifer Dunning (2000, The New York Times)

The sensational all-male Japanese dance troupe Condors is returning to KL after performing to packed halls here 8 years ago!

Brainchild of Ryohei Kondo, Condors has conquered their homeland, turning the Japanese contemporary dance scene on its head. Tickets for one of their Tokyo performances were snapped up in fourteen minutes!

And it doesn't stop there, folks - Condors Mania has spread all over the world. Wherever they go, their performance always send audiences spinning through amazement, shock and laughter.

From their trademark Japanese high-school uniform outfits to their liberal use of shtick and overblown video imagery, this company redefines what a dance performance can be and should be. The troupe is also well-known for its satirical treatment of Japanese pop culture.

As a follow up to the hugely successful Conquest of the Galaxy: Jupiter, the second installment entitled Mars is now heading to KL!

Like Jupiter, Mars is made up of short scenes in omnibus style and integrates commercials, animation film, short plays, and, of course, dance! KL audience will have the chance to watch the improved version with new additions since its premiere.

On the surface, the scenes seem to be meaninglessly connected but, at the very end, it will bring back nostalgic memories and remind you of things that are most important in life.

Many are speaking of creating a new form of dance for the 21st Century but Ryohei Kondo and Condors are already doing it!

Don't expect anything conventional from Condors... just fasten your seatbelts and get ready for a wild ride!
