Winter 2015 @ Theatre Ad Infinitum…
- FIVE STAR REVIEWS FOR LIGHT AT BARBICAN/LONDON INTERNATIONAL MIME FESTIVAL
FIVE STAR REVIEWS FOR LONDON PREMIERE OF LIGHT
Following its sell-out, critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, our five star dystopian sci-fi thriller London Premiered at The Pit, Barbican as part of the 2015 London International Mime Festival.
Inspired by Edward Snowden’s revelations and the ensuing debate on state surveillance, Theatre Ad Infinitum conjures an Orwellian future where a totalitarian regime monitors the thoughts of its citizens through implants. Charged with hunting down ‘terrorists’ who seek illegal disconnection, a young government agent encounters an enigmatic figure from his shadowy past.
Blending anime-style storytelling and a pulsating soundscape to draw audiences into its sci-fi realm, this is a nightmarish tale of love, betrayal and technological power. LED strip and torchlight innovatively illuminate the wordless production, atmospherically set in darkness.
The Times ★★★★★ – “High-octane mime… a pint sized epic”
Everything Theatre ★★★★★ – “To experience innovative theatre that takes the art form to new heights, see this show”
The Observer – “Thrilling….the pace of the performance never letting up”
