Vancouver Fringe Festival review: Figmentally

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      This is a wonderful and weird little story about a struggling writer whose book seems to come to life as she’s writing it. Even though it’s about a writer, there are refreshingly few lines of dialogue.

      Performed by Drea Lusion and Eric Parthum, a pair of real-life children’s circus arts instructors who are charming, expressive, and funny, this wildly imaginative show is based mostly in movement,  physical comedy, acrobatics, and, of course, circus arts.

      There’s an incredible sequence involving Lusion and a chair, which is gut-bustingly funny, but also beautifully conveys just how difficult the act of sitting down to write can be.

      The audience wasn’t just spellbound; we were kids again, dazzled, delighted, and awed.
