THE IMMIGRANT featuring master mime Giuseppe Condello
Fri, 28 April 2017, 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
The Immigrant tells the story of man's hardships and jubilations of immigration into a new country in the quest of a better life and freedom. Fusing authentic immigrant stories with that of Corporeal Mime, The Immigrant explores the extention of movement beyond one's natural abilities as well as highlighting interchnageable locations and character attitudes. From henceforth, the body battles the forces of gravity, resistance and of effort applied to manual labour and becomes entangled in the surge of his own emotional and mental preoccupation.
"The performance combined an extremely refined concept with perfection of movement." -Canadian Culture Centre
"Today there are only a handful of artists left who are qualified to perform and teach Corporeal Mime: Giuseppe Condello is one of them." -Marcel Marceau
"Watching the mime of Condello is like seeing a moving display of heroic Rodin sculpures...his every movement is so expressive, so self-contained and sharply defined." -Edmonton Journal
