About London International Mime Festival

Théâtre de Complicité original members, Jozef Houben and Marcello Magni’s masterclass in comic performance, produced by Peter Brook’s famous Theatre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris. They are a brilliant double act: Houben, the tall figure of authority putting the shorter, Magni, through a series of demanding tests that must be passed to gain qualifications whose significance remain a mystery. As the tests become more arduous, so Magni’s need to take short cuts becomes more pressing and ingenious. A tender and blissfully funny exploration of the perils of ageing, these two distinguished performers celebrate the art of physical comedy.

As a special, festival highlight, Jozef Houben reprises his acclaimed performance-demonstration, explaining and illustrating just what makes us laugh. And you will! Jozef has been involved with many of the most successful physical comedy creations of recent years, most notably in this country with The Right Size. Since its premiere in 2008, Jozef has performed The Art of Laughter around the world, including two, month-long seasons at the renowned Théâtre du Rond Point in Paris.
