jugglers

At the Vaudeville Theatre, London

Reviewed by Silvina De Vita

The Flying Karamazov Brother’s show was an unexpected pleasure to watch. Having read mixed reviews about the group, we decided to go anyway and give them a chance. A series of brilliantly choreographed sketches punctuated the show, always fast moving, imaginative, comic and, more than everything, original.

Each of the ‘brothers’ are talented musicians as well, which carries through in the rhythm of their juggling performance. They had children and adults alike gasping with joy and amazement at some of the daring stunts, which included juggling with flaming torches, meat cleavers and chinese food (as donated by the audience).

A sense of fun and wry humor kept the atmosphere light for the entire hour and a half. This was the last show of the London tour, but I certainly recommend seeing them if they are in a town near you.

We went to see this play two weeks ago on the Southbank in London.

It totally blew my mind.

Not only because Victoria Chaplin is 60 years old and she dances and moves like she was 13, more than that, it was the visual perfection of every act involved.
Jean-Baptiste Thierree is a great clown, playing up to the crowd.
Both together make a fantastic combination, she is very delicate, refined and skilled and he is fun, chaotic and lovable. His “hup hup” makes you feel like you were a little child.

Its a perfect combination of fun and circus, with surprises every minute and fascinating creatures on stage.
