US troupe adds new dimension to mime
Magical illusion, dazzling improvisation, and stunning creativity. These are the hallmarks of a mime troupe who are delighting audiences in Hong Kong.
The Seattle Mime Theatre from the United States will present its final AnimOtion concert today.
The 90-minute performance by the three-member ensemble defies the traditional concept of the mime artist with the white face and jerky movements.
In AnimOtion, performers wear neutral make-up and use music and speech.
AnimOtion will make its curtain call tonight at the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre, starting at 7.30 pm.
Tickets are priced at $80, $120 and $160, with half-price discounts for senior citizens, the disabled and full-time students.
There are also discounts of up to 30 per cent for full- price ticket holders.
Tickets are available at Urbtix.
