ED2012 Physical Review: Leo (Circle Of Eleven)
Ever wondered what happens when we are restricted to a singular room in solitude? In the case of ‘Leo’ a gravity defying spectacle occurs. Through the use of some clever camera work and impressive acrobatic skills – all complemented by an eye-catching set – ‘Leo’ takes the audience on a surreal journey where nothing is as it appears. This performance features a wonderfully played, extremely likeable character whose comedic discovery of changes in gravity is bound to raise many smiles. The piece never loses the sense of fun it sets out with, and to top it all off, ‘Leo’ has one of the most simple yet most joyful endings I have seen in a long time. This characterful piece of physical theatre is a delight for all ages.
Assembly Roxy, 4-27 Aug (not 8, 15, 22), 1.00 pm.
