or the art of hitting yourself

comic body percussion show

written and performed by Anselmo Luisi

A man is alone on stage. No object or instrument besides his body. A journey through music and theatre which will make you discover unexpected sound landscapes blending mime, body percussion and singing.

The show/performance consists of several sketches that start with a musical idea - which is to make music just using the body - being immediately developed by blending mime and comic theatre. An allergic coughing ft becomes a beatbox perdormance; a lady at the restaurant complaining with the owner about a dish becomes a scat duet of ryhtmic jibberish; a man rinsing his dirty shirt becomes becomes a body percussion performance which will lead the entire audience to experiment what it feels like to generate sounds and to make music using by hitting yourself.

Be prepared to get your face slapped.
