Mime London 2016: Aneckxander

Whenever someone says something snide about us at YPlan we either have a go back, mutter obscenities under our breath or pretend it didn't happen and silently stew on it for years. When artist Alexander Vantournhout was told that his neck was "rather long" he decided to create an acrobatic piece of performance art that would rewrite the autobiography of his own body: from subject to object to matter. Quite a way to deal with your insecurities, that's for sure. Vantournhout's mime is performed to music by Arvo Pärt, in which he explores the his body (absolutely starkers) balancing on the fine line between comedy and tragedy as he unfurls across the stage for all to see. The result is a raw self-portrait in which the body both exposes itself to and tries to escape from the prying eyes of those looking at it. Aneckxander is part of the London International Mime Festival 2016. Aneckxander contains nudity throughout. Please arrive on time, as latecomers may not be admitted.
