LIMF 2015 opens in dynamic style with the debut show by Britain’s hottest young acrobats, winners of the inaugural Circus Maximus competition and a 2014 Total Theatre Award.

Relationships are the heart of Bromance, where handshakes become handstands and backslaps become backflips. Audacious, touching, exhilarating, and with a great soundtrack, this is a tour-de-force of cutting edge physical heroics, wittily exploring male companionship and its limits.   

Barely Methodical Troupe are Beren d’Amico, Louis Gift, and Charlie Wheeller, recent graduates of the National Centre for Circus Arts. With their enjoyable personal chemistry and exceptional skills in parkour, Bboying, tricking, hand-to-hand acrobatics, Cyr wheel and more, BMT is destined to take British circus-theatre to new heights.

Trygve Wakenshaw’s KRAKEN is ‘a blissfully funny hour of physical stream-of-consciousness’ (Time Out), the delirious follow up to his Edinburgh and London 2013 smash hit, SQUIDBOY. Starting with a brilliant, elasticized strip-tease entrance that confirms Marx’s dictum of history repeating itself, first as tragedy then as farce, Kraken is a masterpiece of absurd sensibility that follows its own zany logic.

Oozing with whimsy, dripping with charm and magnificently mad, rubber-limbed Trygve is his own animator in a cartoon world. Guileless and innocent - even at his most risqué, this award-winning, Gaulier-trained clown is a physical comedian in a class of his own. Don’t miss him - book now!

All you need to know about balance and the art of falling in a fascinating physical dialogue between cutting edge acrobat Sebastien Le Guen, and electro-acoustic musician Jérôme Hoffman.

In Fall/Fell/Fallen, circus, theatre and music come together in a true artistic collaboration. Its story unfolds with astonishing equilibrium, unusual hand-made props and musical instruments, dark humour and an atmosphere that generates real tension.

Originally trained as a tight-rope walker at the Lido in Toulouse, Sebastien Le Guen founded the Lonely Circus in 1999. Jérôme Hoffman, composer for many stage and contemporary dance productions, joined the company in 2008. In 2013 Lonely Circus was commissioned to perform in the official programme of the 2013 Festival d’Avignon.  

By and with: Jerôme Hoffmann and Sébastien Le Guen

It has featured at theatres and art, dance and circus festivals throughout Europe and America for many years.

Poised, immaculate, and entirely focused on impressing his audience, an eager soloist presides over a spectacular concert catastrophe, a recital that never starts.

The Pianist is a solo, contemporary circus performance, centred on, in, under and around that most magnificent of instruments, the grand piano.

One of his country’s most accomplished young actors, New Zealander, Thomas Monckton, trained at the Lecoq School in Paris, the city he has made his home. The Pianist mixes highly skilled physical comedy with a refined contemporary circus-theatre attitude. Produced by Finland’s innovative Circo Aereo the show has toured extensively since its première in 2013, including a sold-out season at the most recent Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Created by Thomas Monckton and Sanna Silvennoinen

In a 30 year career Chris Lynam has proved to be, in the words of the New York Times, ‘a brilliantly bizarre antidote to today’s truculent society’. He has appeared at the world’s top comedy festivals, been a support act for the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan among many others, and tours regularly with Slava’s Snow Show.

Taking us backstage into the private world of a clown performer, ErictheFred is the strange and poignant story of an old trouper trying to come to terms with a fading career. Gradually his innermost thoughts become visible - holograms of doubts, dreams and delusions which disturb and torment him until the startling climax.

Developed in collaboration with Tomas Kubinek, John Wright, Kate McKenzie, Josie Lawrence and Clive Howard, with original music by Kevin Sargent, composer of scores for a string of successful movies, ErictheFred blends film projection and live action. It is a richly evocative and touching new piece by one of this country’s most original artists. If you think you know clowns - think again.

A night at the circus like no other!

Belgium’s much-loved Circus Ronaldo harks back to the days of travelling fairground theatre, a warm-hearted Felliniesque world of uncomplicated popular entertainment. Amortale is Adam and Eve’s love story, or would be if other people didn’t keep getting in the way. Performed on the Ronaldo’s antique and distinctly wobbly stage, it mixes tragedy and clowning, opera, circus, marionettes, and a touch of arson. Its old world charm, skill and humour are a delight.

Circus Ronaldo has been a regular visitor to the Mime Festival since giving its first ever performances outside Flanders at LIMF 1998.  Since then it has toured its irresistible, hand-crafted brand of commedia-circus far and wide.

Created by Amit Lahav

Following its LIMF’14 hit with Missing, critically acclaimed physical, dance-theatre company, Gecko, returns with an intimate, funny and revealing new show exploring a world in which everyone relies on someone else for support, and what it means to care.

Set in a labyrinthine institute of dark shadows and towering metal cabinets where memories are filed and relationships scrutinised, four people undergo a series of extraordinary ‘treatments’ as they struggle to prepare themselves for the outside world.

Institute is driven by Gecko’s desire to explore complexities in human nature. We are entering a time when we are potentially more fractured and disconnected than ever before. When the time comes, will anyone really care?

Gecko’s work is marked by extraordinary physicality, intense emotion and moments of dark humour.

Winner of Best Speciality Act at the London Cabaret Awards, and Pick of the Fringe Arts Award (Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014) his show is packed with awesome skills and breathtaking spectacle. Showman is a marvel of object manipulation, and clever patter that's engaging and informed about the mystique and history of his noble craft.

A sell-out at last year’s Mime Festival, Showman returns by popular demand, and with some mind-blowing new routines. Early booking recommended.

Inspired by Edward Snowden’s revelations, Theatre Ad Infinitum conjures an Orwellian future where a totalitarian regime monitors the thoughts of its citizens through implants.
Charged with hunting down ‘terrorists’ who seek illegal disconnection, a young government agent encounters an enigmatic figure from his shadowy past. This nightmarish tale of love, betrayal and technological power blends anime-style storytelling and a pulsating soundscape to draw audiences into a sci-fi realm. LED strip and torchlight innovatively illuminate this wordless production.

Effortlessly switching styles in service of its latest subject, the company’s shows have been a highlight of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 2008. Its Translunar Paradise was staged at The Pit as a highlight of LIMF’12.

‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart’ Helen Keller

While a blind old man walks around his room with unsteady steps, a story of love, courage, hope and unquenchable vision unfolds.

Blind Man’s Song, is a tale of one man’s rage against the world of darkness. Inspired by René Magritte’s paintings, the dead-end world of Samuel Beckett and interviews with blind and visually impaired people, it uses theatre, mime, sound and original live music in exploring the power of imagination to seek wisdom beyond our senses.

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble, creating vibrant and emotional work on the edge of mime and theatre. Its two previous productions, The Gambler and The Little Soldiers, have both toured widely following successful Edinburgh Fringe seasons. Theatre Re is an associate company of South Hill Park Arts Centre.

Original music: Alex Judd

Conceived by Aurélien Bory for the extraordinary Japanese dancer, Kaori Ito, Plexus is a jewel of optical theatre.

Entrapped by five thousand cords, a forest of brilliantly lit strings, a warrior-woman conquers her environment so that she floats, like a black angel, in a sumptuous cage that she can only leave by vanishing completely.

Following his Olivier Award nominated What’s Become of You? for flamenco dancer, Stéphanie Fuster (LIMF/Barbican 2014) Plexus is director Aurélien Bory’s latest portrait of a remarkable dancer. Kaori Ito trained in classical ballet in Japan and America, then came to Europe where she performed and choreographed with Philippe Découfflé, Angelin Preljocaj, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, James Thierrée, and Alain Platel’s ballets C de la B.

Aurélien Bory and Kaori Ito are two of Europe’s most exciting dance innovators; Plexus is a revelation.

Three bizarre and enigmatic characters - acrobat, trapezist, and neurotic magician - flirt with mystery and disaster at the maddest tea party since Alice visited Wonderland. As if from another dimension, from a David Lynch or Tim Burton movie, their humour and magic are black. Where truth hides behind a veil of bluff and deception, who can say what’s real or not? Set in velvety darkness shot through with brilliant red, Oktobre will leave you bewitched and delighted.

A winner at the prestigious Jeunes Talents Cirque/Circus Next awards in 2013, Oktobre features three of France's top young circus-theatre talents including YouTube sensation Yann Frisch, named 'World Champion of Magic' at the 2012 International Federation of Magic Societies convention held in Blackpool. The director is Florent Bergal, whose Popcorn Machine for My! Laika was a popular hit at LIMF2013.

Joli Vyann’s new show crosses the frontiers of theatre, dance and circus to explore
the topical subject of refugees, immigration and journeys. Its powerful stories of emotional upheaval and the fates of people crossing borders, unfold with intense physicality, hand-to-hand acrobatics, bodies flying and falling. There are moments of sadness, courage, friendship and humour, provoking us to think about humanity, tolerance, and the state of being stateless.

One of Britain’s most unusual and ambitious new circus companies, Joli Vyann was founded in 2012 by Olivia Quayle and Jan Patzke. In the same year it won the National Theatre’s Watch This Space and Stockton International Riverside G120 scheme.
Stateless is the company’s third show and devised in collaboration with French composer, choreographer, actress and circus artist, Florence Caillon.

In a sea of irreverent chaos and a world of knots, wires and spaghetti, a surreal cooking show loses the plot and the noodles take over.

Created by Clown Director Holly Stoppit and the company with the crazy ideas of Finland’s Maksim Komaro, Noodles is fun, funny and fantastic, and features an international cast of top circus artists.

Aerialists, hand-balancers, wire-walkers, contortionists and musicians twist and spin reality in an original and inventive show that challenges your preconceptions about circus. Beautiful and completely mad!

Two rickety trailer homes sit within a snow-covered landscape, left wholly exposed to the elements. Here, the young people of a small mountain community succumb to their subconscious fears, overcome by loneliness they cannot escape.

Cinematic set design, an evocative soundtrack and jaw-dropping physicality combine to create an unforgettable piece of dance theatre that plunges spectators into a foreboding universe of cold, wind and ice. Six performers contort, bend, jerk and levitate in dizzying scenes of hypnotic movement.

Belgian dance collective Peeping Tom has toured internationally with this show, impressing audiences with the ingenuity and hyper-real quality of its work. These performances for LIMF’15 at the Barbican mark the company’s London debut.

Embark on a spectacular visual journey inspired by dogugaeshi – the Japanese art of creating illusions through perspective. As more than 100 hand-painted gilt and paper panels unfold, revolve and slide, images from ancient and contemporary Japan are revealed.

Bamboo thickets, soaring bridges and dense cityscapes materialise, while wide-eyed foxes with drooping moustaches dance mid-air.

Audacious theatre artist and puppeteer Basil Twist collaborates with master musician Yumiko Tanaka, who plays the three-stringed shamisen live as an accompaniment. Dogugaeshi layers brilliant puppetry with video projection and electronic sound to give this rarely seen craft a contemporary spin.

Basil Twist appeared at LIMF’01 with his signature piece, Symphonie Fantastique. His puppetry and design collaborations include Cinderella with Christopher Wheeldon at Dutch National Ballet and San Francisco Ballet, and A Winter’s Tale for the Royal Ballet in 2014. Hewas part of the creative team for Kate Bush’s recent Before the Dawn concerts in London.

Film

LES ENFANTS DU PARADIS (France)

Directed by Marcel Carné, 1943-45
Sun 18 January 2.30pm
Barbican Centre, Cinema 2
Book online >

Mime theatre and cinema come together in what is one of almost every film buff’s favourite movies. Carné and Prevert’s romantic epic is set in the Parisien theatre world of the 1840’s, amongst the aristocrats, street performers, actors, criminals and courtesans who were drawn to the Théâtre des Funambules. But filmed during the German occupation of Paris a century later, the doubts and menacing atmosphere of the time seem to colour the swirling passions and fleeting moments of happiness that enfold its unforgettable gallery of characters. With Arletty, Jean-Louis Barrault as the white face mime Jean Baptiste, and the father of modern mime - Etienne Decroux - as his father.

A cinematic masterpiece always best experienced in its full glory on the big screen.

GUILLAUME PIGÉ
FROM THE ACTOR TO THE MIME

This one-day workshop will be an introduction to the work of Etienne Decroux and his assistants, and how Theatre Re uses corporeal mime to create new material for theatre.
The mime gives physical reality to ideas and emotions. He makes the invisible visible. Mime is about using the body, not replacing words by gestures, but about communicating something greater than words alone can achieve.
From body articulation to counterweights, from dynamo rhythm to mobile statuary, participants will discover how to play their body like a violin, how to create movement in stillness and how to be ready for action.
This workshop will be valuable for actors and performers wishing to enhance their physical presence on stage, but also to anyone involved in devised theatre where the actor is at the centre of the creation process.
Guillaume Pigé is the founder and artistic director of Theatre Re. He trained at the International School of Corporeal Mime in London with Corinne Soum and Steven Wasson, and with Thomas Leabhart and Daniel Stein. He has an MA in Text and Performance Studies from King’s College London & the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), where he is now an associate tutor. He is also a professional magician. Since 2014, Guillaume has been an Associate Artist at South Hill Park Arts Centre.

DEVISING THEATRE AND PERFORMANCE

This two-day workshop offers an introduction to both collaborative and individually devised theatre and performance practice. It addresses all performers, dancers, actors, directors and teachers who have a specific interest in the idea of devising original work.
