At the same stage we got to see another performer . . .
She was pretty good but her material lacked in originality and magic . . .
Seriously . . . a mime doing the 'washing the windows' routine? If you pull out this one at an INTERNATIONAL festival for mimes shouldn't there be some kind of original twist on the material? Something that hasn't been seen before . . . oh well.
As far as stage presence goes she didn't have the caliber of other-worldliness that the first mime had . . . her expressions reminded me of Korean comedians on TV--not that of a mime.
And then came some kind of hybrid mime-ballet dance posture thing . . .
Hmmmm . . . it's too subtle . . . I don't get the message . . . why choose a swan?
The story seemed to be the woman saying goodbye to her husband who was going on a business trip . . .
She then meets a stranger wearing sunglasses, a hat, and trench coat . . . I wonder if trench coats have the same cultural connotations in Korean culture as they do in western?
How does a mime show the 'climax' of the story? You faint . . . okay.
Giving the peace sign as she gets kissed by the other guy . . . nice.
Part 3 coming soon . . .
