Starting this week at the Southbank in London ‘Leo’ from Germany, part of the London International Mime Festival, combines world-class acrobatics, visual artistry and clever film manipulation in a journey of joyful discovery and invention.
Reminiscent of a wordless Samuel Beckett scenario, it’s a fantastical playground in which a man seeks meaning in his isolation, inventing games to while away the time.
This is physical theatre taken to creative and imaginative heights. With gravity distorted, ‘Leo’ throws you upside down, tilts you sideways and messes with your head in the most glorious, brain-tickling way.
