Deadly

Purcell Room Sat 15 - Wed 19 Jan 8pm ÂŁ10 (ÂŁ8 concs) Mix the skills and thrills of circus with gymnastics, dance and theatre and you have Deadly - a powerfully erotic, multi award-winning portrayal of the Seven Deadly Sins. Set against a background of music from techno to classical, the atmosphere positively crackles with electricity as New Zealander Deborah Pope and Brazilian Rodrigo Matheus create one stunning image after another, and you are left breathless with admiration for the beauty of the human form.

Not suitable for children. Runs approx. 60 minutes Presented in association with SBC

In sixty increasingly hilarious minutes, actor/ mime Paolo Nani goes through the routine of writing a letter in a succession of different characterisations and styles. Each self-contained episode is filled with artistry and visual humour. ‘There is a sense of being trapped in an endless loop where life is always the same yet never the same and increasingly hysterical....bubbling with inventive comedy. Watch out for future reappearances of Paolo Nani’s The Letter’. THE TIMES

Mossoux Bonté Gradiva Purcell Room Mon 24 - Wed 26 Jan 8pm £10 (£8 concs) Like a giant marionette, Nicole Mossoux floats above the stage suspended by a cord which is both her means of support and a barrier to her freedom. In this new follow-on to the company’s award-winning Twin Houses, which explored the relationship between performer and puppets, Gradiva reveals the powers of suggestion that animated figures can exercise on human beings. A seamless blend of dance and theatre and a compelling journey to the furthest reaches of your imagination. ‘Spoken text and explicable gestures could not begin to define the nebulous sensibilities that this show brings into focus. It nudges at the very beingness of being. If this is the way mime is going, then three cheers’. INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on Twin Houses Presented in association with SBC Runs approx. 60 minutes

Catalan performers Xavier Marti and Christian Atanasiu have character observation down to a fine art in this series of silent, bittersweet sketches. Innocuous situations are taken to extremes, realistic yet absurd, where sentiment plunges into cynicism and the small tragedies of daily routine become too funny for words. Winners of the Innovation Award for Comedy at the Moers Festival, the duo makes its British debut with these performances. Leave higher sensibilities at home - come and enjoy a night of slapstick and sight gags, dark humour and physical comedy skills. ‘Simple everyday situations are brought wickedly, sometimes brutally to their humorous conclusion in wonderfully crafted scenes...’

We are proud to present Les Deux Voyages de Jacques Lecoq in tribute to his memory. Runs approx. 105 mins, inc interval.

Stan’s Cafe It’s Your Film Cabot Hall, Canary Wharf Wed 26 - Sat 29 Jan £2 Wed-Fri 12 noon-3pm and 5-8pm Sat 11am-2pm and 3-5pm

The work of Birminghambased Stan’s Cafe has resonated through the physical theatre world for nearly a decade. Somewhere between a peep show and a fairground ride, its latest production lasts just 180 seconds and is performed for an audience of one, seated in a small viewing booth. Using slide projection and live performance, two actors conjure up a dense emotional narrative from a whirl of beautiful cinematic images; close-ups, long shots, interiors and exteriors, dissolves and superimpositions. The immediacy is thrilling, with a latent charge which sustains long after viewing. It’s Your Film is staged for you alone. It plays ten times per hour - book your own private viewing NOW.

Pleasance Theatre London Sun 16 - Tue 18 Jan 8pm £9 (£7 concs) ON TOUR High Wycombe, Swan Wed 19 Jan 8pm 01494 512 000 In a series of extraordinary vignettes performed to the atmospheric music of top British composers Pete McPhail, Glyn Perrin and Simon Walters, marionettist Stephen Mottram creates powerful animation theatre, for adults. The incredible world they inhabit is full of surprises, from the most elegant and tender moments to darkly mystifying magic. Humour combines with the macabre to create a richly teasing visual feast, while uneasiness grows as the puppets become more and more independent of the artist who controls them. Sophisticated visual theatre which is hauntingly different. ‘Its powerful atmospheric quality is totally captivating’. PLAYS AND PLAYERS

Far beyond the surreal, this tale of four bored security guards in a gallery of modern art freefalls into an alternative world of impressively mounting chaos. Ground-breaking, hilarious and genuinely eccentric, The Exhibitionists touches new heights of absurdity to reveal the hollow pretentiousness of the sane establishment.

For thirty five spectators at a time, in the atmospheric stillness of an antiquary’s library, mysteries of the universe are explored and explained in a miracle of miniature animation theatre. A voyage through ideas and time, enigmatic and beautiful, Aberrations is the stuff of dreams.... and nightmare.

Performed by puppeteers Ezechiel Garcia-Romeu and François Tomsu, and featuring distinguished French actor Jacques Fornier as the mysterious antiquary, this most unusual theatre experience was one of the 1999 Avignon Festival’s outstanding hits. ‘A moment of magic’. LA PROVENCE

With its bizarre stories and wonderfully Heath Robinson mechanical sets, Faulty Optic’s unique style of animation theatre has fascinated audiences around the world First created ten years ago, Snuffhouse Dustlouse has become a timeless classic, an orgy of visual delights including an automated thunder machine, pickled talking heads and a spectacularly glittering finale. ‘Sucked into this weird world we are transfixed by magic’.

Tanya Khabarova/ Derevo Company Reflection

ICA Theatre: Fri 21 - Sun 23 Jan 8pm £10 (£8 concs) inc. ICA m’ship Russia’s controversial, contemporary clown ensemble Derevo has already enjoyed great success at the Mime Festival with its apocalyptic The Red Zone (1998), and in contrasting style with Once (1999), a fairy tale about love. In this electrifying new solo show, Derevo founder member Tanya Khabarova revisits the elemental, twilight landscape of The Red Zone. With extraordinary charisma, silent force, and drawing on a mastery of butoh and raw commedia, she reveals the darker side of clown theatre. ‘Terrifying and tantalising...it’s the razor-edged contrast in tone that makes Red Zone so extraordinary. Poised between structure and void, it is a must-see in the truest sense.’ THE LIST (Edinburgh) Runs approx. 60 minutes

ICA m’ship Following the success of Faces of the Night at the 1999 Festival, Frank Soehnle returns with another offbeat masterpiece from the Figurentheater Tübingen repertoire. Set in the seedy, demimondaine Flamingo Bar, a tale of seduction and desire unfolds - a wordless intermezzo for fans, shoes, and every sort of puppet object and animated figure. ‘It should be hard to believe that sticks, rags and strings - no more than can be carried in one hand - could elicit such emotion, laughter and curiosity, but the German puppeteer Frank Soenhle makes it easy to accept. None of the puppets is large and Soenhle never tries to hide the work of his hands, yet the puppets are exquisitely suggestive and their movements hint fleetingly, as though out of the corner of your eye, at outrageous lust and longing.’ NEW YORK TIMES
