Bondi’s Dan Mor Stars In A Case For Gesture

By Dan Hutton on April 5, 2011 in Arts

Introducing A Case for Gesture – a search for eternal love through the power of laughter and movement.

In the lead up to the Sydney Fringe Festival, the Seymour Centre will open its doors for a limited season from April 6 to 9 to A Case for Gesture – a visual feast of mime, clown, gesture and movement.

Directed by Felix Schwartz, this will be a fun filled night for all willing to lose themselves in the absurd.

In a deft mix of traditional clown art, movement and physical comedy pared with atmospheric special effects, six actors will explore the search for eternal love through a combination of heart-warming and sentimental short stories.

The talented cast, including Bondi local Dan Mor (Underbelly-3 The Golden Mile, Cedar Boys), Aaron Glenane (The Black Balloon, Happy Feet 2), Felix Schwartz, Anna Freeland (Nida Musical Theatre Graduate), Heather Maltman and Peter Djordjevic, will convey many of the comical, philosophical and dramatic paths to love in the absence of the spoken word.

Creator Felix Schwartz believes, “A Case for Gesture explores the protagonist in all of us in our search for eternal love. The search that can make us silly or make us heroic. We invite our audience to forget about the world outside for an hour and embrace their inner child and let the feeling of warmth, love and laughter stay with them long after the show.”

In the same vein and aesthetic sensibilities as Poulunin’s world famous Snow Show, A Case for Gesture is as melancholic as it is humorous and beautiful. A show not to be missed.

If that’s not enough to get you along, the cast have also decided to donate a portion of all proceeds from ticket sales to the QLD flood appeal.
