Radim Vizváry

Radim Vizváry, the greatest figure of contemporary Mime Theater will perfom at the International Fringe festival Beer Sheva. The event is organized by Czech Centre.

RADIM VIZVÁRY: SOLO

SOLO PRESENTS THE VERY BEST OF RADIM VIZVÁRY’S PANTOMIME WORK.

From classic pantomime to Butoh and physical comedy to contemporary Mime Theater. Vizváry’s pantomime is modern, clean and topical. And even if he embraces the influences of other styles, in the end he always blazes his own trail.

This tour de force is at once classical and contemporary, poetic and comical. You will laugh and cry without a single word uttered on stage – because none are needed for Vizváry’s art. The expression is purely physical, combining virtuoso movement with acting. In short, you will see what pantomime means today.
