Opening the 2010 London International Mime Festival, Oper Opis (which translates as “someone something”) is a mix of visual arts, circus, music and dance.

Directed and led by the rubber-limbed Martin Zimmermann, and composer/DJ Dimitri de Perrot, the company features some of Europe’s top young circus artists.

On a precariously tilting, unstable floor a daredevil game of shifting relationships, balance and control unfolds. Driven by a fabulous live scratched soundscore, every move is a risk, every step a challenge and everyone’s perspective distorted.

Performance time: 19:45
Running time: 70mins / no interval

Age guidance 8+

14 Jan Post Show Talk
Chaired by Dick McCaw with members of the company
