Chapertons: Boom!

Chapertons: Boom!

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2001

Boom! creates an entire world from a pile of pneumatic tyres and the comic imagination of three actors. Motorbikes, dodgems, elephants, giant forest creatures and a chamber orchestra follow one another in a dizzying parade.

Original Review:

This Barcelona trio really do take mime into new territory.

Their show revolves around rubber, with a stage is strewn with pneumatic tyres of varying sizes. This all sounds a bit dull and hardly awe-inspiring, but it is a visual treat.

The three performers have a rapport that is electric, and the way they bring to life inanimate objects is particularly impressive.

And the sketch involving Scottish dancers in rubber kilts was a sight to behold - absolutely hilarious.

This innovative show, which esemed to finish in the blink of an eye, appeals across the board. It's a very imaginative, well thought-out and brilliantly executed piece of comedy theatre that is sheer joy to watch.

Superb.
