Additional performance for Fred Garbo Inflatable Theater
An additional performance of the Fred Garbo Inflatable Theater Co will be held at 3pm on August 16 at the Shatin Town Hall Auditorium due to overwhelming demand.
The programme is part of the summer festival International Arts Carnival.
The Fred Garbo Inflatable Theater Co has been acclaimed by The New York Times as "...skillful...joyful...buoyant entertainment".
It is "...like watching a live-action cartoon and occasionally being permitted to get in on the routine when those blobs float over the audience..." said The New York Times.
Fred Garbo, from Maine, US, and Daielma Santos from Sao Paulo, Brazil, blend their own traditions of wild physical comedy, dance, and juggling with inflatable props. Expect to see colourful parachute silk in the shape of cubes, cylinders and wheels.
Fred Garbo Inflatable Theater Co has toured worldwide with a programme that transcends barriers of language, culture and age. Its return visit to Hong Kong will be welcomed by families this summer.
Including the additional show, the Fred Garbo Inflatable Theater Co will perform at 3pm and 7.30pm on August 16 at the Shatin Town Hall Auditorium; and 7.30pm on August 17 at the Yuen Long Theatre Auditorium.
