Leo (Y2D Productions And Assembly)

By | Published on Saturday 3 August 2013

Surreal and ingenious, this gravity defying show returns to the Fringe to charm, confuse and astound audiences once again. With an almost reverential nod to the quirks of silent era slapstick, the world is turned on its side by a performance that is carried out a full 90 degrees to the right – that is, he performs most of his mime on a backdrop perpendicular to the audience. Next to this wonderfully bizarre display is a screen onto which the action is projected the ‘right way up’. With nothing but a briefcase and a hat, William Bonnet gradually discovers and explores his new found gravity, a new reality which he begins to influence and create with innocent and innovative precision.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug, 6.00pm.
