Teatro Delusio (Familie Floz)
By Penelope Hervouet | Published on Saturday 20 August 2016
Thirty characters, over an hour and not a word. An ambitious and brilliantly executed concept, ‘Teatro Delusio’ invites the audience on a journey behind the scenes of a theatre. And, while we may only be backstage, the show is very much on! A mix of mime, masks and music makes it difficult to pin down this piece to a single genre. The three actors and puppeteers bring to life an extraordinary diversity of characters: despite the still faces of the masks, they convey a wide emotional range, and each character has their own story and personality. Between technical mishaps, rehearsals, love, artistic rivalries and even sword fights, ‘Teatro Delusio’ is a charming, comic and poetic journey.
Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
