Mask Χ Mime Workshop
Mask Χ Mime Workshop

Playful life brings a distinctive vitality

 

‘Wordless and yet somehow so expressive, full of yearning and yet also filled with joy; this is a splendid and immensely skillful character comedy.’

The Guardian, UK

 

‘As well as being very funny, these masked characters also have a real psychological depth.’

The Stage, UK

 

The Audience Award at euro-scene Leipzig in 2012

 

Infinita is a comedy and physical/visual mosaic about the first and last moments of life.  The story begins with a group of three young toddlers and ending in a retirement home.  It is about a distinctive vitality, as the old men in their retirement home continue in the spirit of playfulness that defined their youth. The four fabulously masked starring without spoken words, with a very crafty shadows and enchanting music play a game of transience, of being born and of growing old, and a vigorous succession of scenes about the inevitable fate of the human being. 

 

The programme has been toured in 25 countries and was welcomed with great enthusiasm by the audience and critics at the London International Mime Festival 2016.

Recommended for ages 12 and above

The running time of each performance is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes without intermission

‘From Puppets to Humans’ Series: Infinita by Familie Flöz (Germany)

Familie Flöz is a world-renowned mask theatre company established in Essen, Germany in 1994 and based in Berlin since 2001.  It is an international pool of theatre makers, actors, musicians, dancers, directors, dramatic advisors and designers of mask, light, set and costume from different nations.  Each play is developed in a collective working process through constant rediscovery of disciplines such as mask theatre, dance, clownery, acrobatics, improvisation, mime and physical comedy.  Their works, without spoken word, are performed through movement, images and music. 

 

The group appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2001 which attracted invitations to perform various works throughout the world since then. Over the past 20 years they have toured with different productions to 34 countries, including the spectacular sold-out run of Teatro Delusio in Hong Kong in 2006, giving Familie Flöz an international reputation for its unique poetic and comic ensemble.
