After previous sell-out successes with Teatro Delusio, Ristorante Immortale and Hotel Paradiso, Germany’s mask theatre masters return to the Mime Festival with another brilliant visual comedy in Infinita.
A cast of irresistible, larger-than-life characters are seen both as warring children, and, in later life, as residents of an old people’s home. The wily games of nursery one-upmanship seem hardly to change with the passing of time; survival of the craftiest is still the rule of the day.
Infinita plays out in a succession of increasingly hilarious scenes, combining poignancy, astute observation and some superbly skilled slapstick.
Part of London International Mime Festival 2016.
