Tickets for "Slastic" at Yuen Long Theatre still available
Tickets for the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre performance of physical theatre "Slastic" by Clownic de Tricicle from Spain are almost a sell-out and people are reminded to make reservation for tickets for the performance at Yuen Long Theatre.
Combining art and sport in funny ways that is beyond your imagination, "Slastic" is part of the summer spectacular International Arts Carnival organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
Mixing mine, slapstick humour and a bucket-load of creativity, the performing trio will bring you and your family an evening of outrageous fun and laughter.
"Slastic" is a sport event that is free of fierce competition, national pride, drug scandal and stifling product commercialism. Instead you will only find the most bizarre games and matches being played out: Harry Potter-like men's tennis singles, three-way boxing, Tour de France on exercise bikes, a baby crawling race and many more.
"Tricicle, Olympic Gold Medal for mine and comedy, will guarantee you, in this 90-minute-comedy, laughs from the beginning to end", acclaimed Donostilandia, a publication in Spain.
Tricicle is a company that has been working for 20 years on its favourite media: theatre. Their shows are a mixture of silent cinema, clown, mime and conventional theatre. Its language is gesture and this allows them to communicate with audiences from all over the world.
Worked mostly in Spain, Tricicle set up a second company Clownic de Tricicle five years ago, and their shows have won extensive acclaim.
"Slastic" will be held at 7.30pm on August 6-7 and 3pm on August 7 at Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre Theatre, and 7.30pm on August 8 at Yuen Long Theatre Auditorium. Tickets priced at $180, $140 and $100 are available at URBTIX outlets.
