Leo (Circle of Eleven)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

In this spectacular show, ‘Leo’ lives at a ninety degree angle to the rest of us. We see Leo’s world via a real-time projection rotated to make our floor his wall, whilst also seeing Tobias Wegner perform in “our” world. The joy of ‘Leo’ is partly seeing his gravity-defying antics as his world and ours collide. Mostly, however, it’s from watching the amazing performance put in by Wegner as he presents an utterly convincing impression of altered gravity, dancing brilliantly and even playing the sax. Just when you think it can get no better, ‘Leo’ amazes once more by introducing CGI effects that only we can see but with which Wegner interacts perfectly. Absolutely brilliant; buy your tickets now before they sell out.

St George’s West, 5 – 29 Aug (not 10, 17, 24), 8.30pm (9.35pm), £9.00 – £13.50, fpp275.
