French mime artist returns
Legendary mime master Marcel Marceau is returning to Hong Kong for two shows next month. At 80, the French artist is as sprightly, energetic and charming as ever. He last performed in Hong Kong four years ago. His two-hour show will be divided into two parts. Pantomimes of Style consists of short stories that display his superb mime techniques, while Pantomimes of Bip explores the misadventures of his famous, top hat-wearing character Bip.
The shows will be staged at 8pm on October 21 and 22 at the Concert Hall of the City Hall. Tickets priced at $300, $250, $200 and $100 are now available at all Urbtix outlets. Half-price discounts are available for students, senior citizens and the disabled. For ticket bookings, call 2734 9009 or visit www.urbtix.gov.hk
