London International Mime Festival in pictures
Discover some of the performers involved in the 2012 festival
The London International Mime Festival isn’t just a haven for silent clowns: here, eight companies put Caroline McGinn in the picture about their shows featuring puppetry, juggling and physical theatre.
'Smashed' by Gandini Juggling
Time Out says, 'Anarchic juggling fun from this British company.' Linbury Studio Theatre, Jan 18-21
‘This piece is a journey involving 100 apples and some vintage crockery. The photo is a freeze frame of an important part of the show which is on the borderline of several artforms… performance art dipped in choreographed juggling. It also holds a trace of Pina Bausch to whom the show is a tribute. The show was meant to be a one off week-long commission but has been performed 30 times so far and has many bookings into next year… We wanted the show to have multiple narratives: I like the fact that it seems both serious and self mocking… it will hopefully invite people into our world.’
