Leo Aylen: DANCING THE IMPOSSIBLE OR WHY I’M NOT A POLICEMAN
A world-wide, time-travelling, trip, of poems, stories, and jokes, in “the animated company of Leo’s vivacious characters.”
New York to Thailand, Canada to Zululand, from outer space to ancient Greeks, totem poles to motorways entangling themselves; from lark-song peace, to Neanderthals stealing fire, to tongue-twisting farce. Leo has performed in the Albert Hall, St Paul’s Cathedral, New York night-clubs, prisons, to 4000 Zulus on a hillside, as well as in theatres on three continents, with three solo shows on American commercial television.
“A triumph” – Melvyn Bragg. “Stupendous” – Simon Callow. Other reviews: — “Zorba-like vitality” “a mixture of Hilaire Belloc, Ogden Nash, Euripides, and David Attenborough, his poetry crackled and sparkled; he keeps the wonder of the natural world alive” “Vibrant stage personality, which immediately wins his audience” “Considerable talents as a mimic” “A singeing energy.” “A mini drama festival in itself” “A tour de force.”
