Pathos at the Mimetic Festival in The Vaults, Waterloo
Compagnia Teatro in Centro will present Pathos as part of the Mimetic Festival which will run at The Vaults in Waterloo from 25 to 29 November 2014.
Written by Ester Montalto and Marga Domenech, this physical theatre show "explores the theme of jealousy with irony in a show without spoken word, showing the genesis of this feeling from the colourful childhood up to the evolving of a real obsession in some adults."
"Jealousy: the fear of losing your loved one. Funny and colorful in childhood, an unstoppable and eventually violent emotion in some adults. Pathos explores the mechanism of passionate love, from the first sight to its very conclusion. Without words, through symbolic images and dreamlike projections while making use of commedia dell arte, pantomime, grammelot, clownerie and white masks, we describe the most unpredictable and bloody aspect of every passionate feeling: love."
Compagnia Teatro in Centro is a young theatre company from Como, Italy, performing in London for the first time. They previously presented Pathos at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014.
