Yurtakids! A Story Of A Man And His Shadow (Principio Attivo Teatro)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

Extremely expressive despite featuring very few words, ‘A Story of a Man and His Shadow’ is incredibly charming and cleverly understated. A slightly confusing narrative does not detract from the overall visual feast of the piece as the action plays out between our adorable protagonist and a sinister figure determined to invade his house. The slapstick comedy which plays out between the two is amusing and had the younger members of the audience in fits of giggles. However it was the cameo performance of the man’s faithful balloon which delighted audience members most. Enchanting at every turn, ‘A Story of a Man and His Shadow’ is essential family viewing.

Summerhall, until 25 Aug, 2.00pm.
