Pullcherium Famfuláre Mundi (The Most Beautiful Famfulare in the World)
Alfred ve dvoře resident Fleur Alexander reviews a selection of the theatre's nonverbal productions
The commentary and musical accompaniment by Jan Kalivoda, laid over Vojta Švejda's silent performance, clearly adds new depths to the piece.
The audience cautiously tittered at first, however within 20 minutes they were completely engaged with the Famfulare's plight and were roaring with laughter.
I wish I could have joined them, but I felt a little removed from it and my envy bubbled up within me as I longed to understand. I wouldn't have minded if the show hadn't been so damn good.
The voice, the music, and the clown fell into a natural, early synchronized rhythm that seemed not only effortless, but also enticing.
The audience quickly accepted the act's unusual format and their enjoyment was evident.
The mime was easy to appreciate too: clear, concise, and graceful.
As an onlooker, you know that every movement -- regardless of how small or seemingly insignificant -- was in fact, meticulously thought-out and intentional.
There were plenty of aspects that I could comprehend; essentially they were telling the story of a journey and detailing it beautifully along the way.
The frenzy and playful nature of the energy slightly reminded me of a Reduced Shakespeare Company production, squeezing in a lot of observation, humor, and vitality.
However, this show communicates with its spectators much more intimately -- less of a showcase and more of an open exchange. The performers feed and tailor their performance to the reaction of their audience and that, done well, is an unparalleled theatrical feat.
