iMime, There's an App for That
This was one of my favorites of the Fringe Festival. From the comedy of Angry Birds to the dramatic depiction of a lost soul bargaining with God, this hour of miming was highly entertaining and riveting.
What was most impressive was Kirsten Stephens' ability to express herself with body and facial expressions. Her facial expressions of two different people riding a roller coaster were priceless. She used her entire body for effect. You could see that every gesture and pose was part of the plot and used to communicate to the audience, much like a very good dancer. Timing was wonderful, both for comedic and dramatic effect. Every small vignette had its own build up and resolution.
I also loved the use of props, the Ipad and the glow in the dark underwear.
I suppose I would have understood the Angry Bird bit more if I had ever actually played the game, but I still got enough to really enjoy it.
Kudos to the artist.
