ErictheFred – Thur 30th July

An Edinburgh Festival preview, direct from The London International Mime Festival, Harare International Festival of the Arts and Chuncheon International Mime Festival in South Korea….The Portico Gallery presents….

ErictheFred – an intriguing story of a trouper grappling with a fading career. Flickering thoughts and projected dreams blur the lines between the real and ethereal.  Original film, music, puppetry and clowning create an unnervingly familiar world of slapstick, tragedy and joy.

Beautiful images, wonderful original score from Kevin Sargent.  A reminder that life is painful ,sad, joyful and blissful all at once.
