Stereoptik: Stellaire

London International Mime Festival

Wonder at the universe and stars as two virtuoso artists create a beautiful visual feast, a graphic novel that literally emerges before your eyes.

Set in a magic-lantern world, Stellaire is a love story unfolding through space and time. Using paper, chalk, charcoal, sand, silhouettes and projection, the Stereoptik duo’s gentle live music accompaniment highlights this enchanting astral romance.

Following Dark Circus, their big top cowboy melodrama at the Barbican for LIMF 2016, Romain Bermond and Jean-Baptiste Maillet return with this latest handmade mini-spectacle.
