"Cocktail Clown" to be staged tomorrow
A blissful summer carnival for your enjoyment! The Group XPTO from Brazil will present from tomorrow (July 28) a creative pantomime of adventure story, funny body movements, wonderful sounds and live Brazilian music in the entertaining "Cocktail Clown".
The programme will be staged at 7.30pm on July 28 and 29 at the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre Theatre; and also at 3pm and 7.30pm on July 31 at the Kwai Tsing Theatre Auditorium.
Featuring a splendid cast of colourful characters - Princess Bonbon, Prince Cheesecake, Mr Crab Stick and more, "Cocktail Clown" tells the story of the Clown in an exciting adventure. The performing group perfectly blends its invented language and sensational appearances with beautiful live Brazilian music. This piece of pure theatre, ranging from the side-splittingly funny to the visually stunning, is ultimately a joyous message of hope and love, and an ode to one of our oldest friends - the clown.
Group XPTO aims at integrating multiple artistic elements of theatre, dance, music and puppetry theatre and has won many awards at home and overseas. It's production "Cocktail Clown" is the winner of the Best Children's Play Award and the Best Set and Puppet Design Award presented by Brazil's Sao Paulo Association of Art Reviewers.
