FIAF, Florence Gould Hall
“If there’s a more inspired contemporary physical comedian
—I don’t know of him.” —The New Yorker
What causes a chuckle? A giggle? A hearty laugh? Renowned actor from Théâtre Complicité and longtime collaborator of Peter Brook presents a hilarious comedy about comedy.
See what makes you laugh as Houben dissects the mechanics that trigger laughter: facial expressions, the idiosyncrasies of the body, the act of falling down, and the importance of timing.
A delightful performance, sure to please audiences of all ages!
