There’s a lot to admire in this international experiment in unspoken co-operation. Charismatic Colombians Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz show an extraordinary amount of simpatico as they improv-mime linked scenes from audience suggestions. The only sound for most of 60 minutes is the audio backdrop painted by Winnipeg DJ Mama Cutsworth (Sarah Michaelson).
It’s not perfect. There are stretches when the audience (and often the other collaborators) silently struggle to understand what’s happening onstage. But when the three artists click and moments come into crystal-clear focus, clever scene work glows just a bit brighter than usual. It’s an inspired, inspiring feat.
It’ll leave you speechless, too.
