London International Mime Festival: Harlekin
Saturday 19 January 2013, 6.00pm
Linbury Studio Theatre
If God and the Devil were playing chess, Harlekin would be the chessboard. Sinister, beautiful and rich in extraordinary images, this stunning spectacle reveals the darker side of Columbine’s commedia dell’arte lover, Harlekin.
Regular visitors to the Mime Festival since 1998, frequent award-winners at the Edinburgh Fringe, Moscow’s prestigious Golden Mask Festival and elsewhere, Anton Adassinsky’s Derevo stands at the forefront of new Russian visual theatre. It’s unique and searing mashup dada-mime-butoh-clowning style is nothing less than explosive.
Suitable for 7 years and over.
The annual festival returns to the Linbury Studio Theatre with innovative and spectacular performances.
