(In Italian with Japanese superimposed dialogue)
Italy's Teatro Kismet presents the familiar fairy tale in an athletic and witty hour that both adults and children can enjoy. This theater provides the amplified growls of Beast, the production draws imaginatively on styles from circus clowning to acrobatics and dance.
The play is performed in Italian with Japanese superimposed dialogue. The Beast is never too scary, looking a bit like a man with a teddy bear head, and the actor plays as an attractively athletic figure, swinging from hammocks and rope ladders so that he rarely touches the floor. In appropriate counterpart actor's Beauty evokes both grace and the enegy of youth in her dance-like movements.
There will be a theater workshop for Kids.
