No. 269: James Thiérrée
My creative coiffeur just turned me on to James Thiérrée: part clown, poet trapeze artist, violinists, magician, mime and astonishing contemporary dancer and choreographer. The son of circus performers Victoria Chaplin and Jean-Baptiste Thiérrée and the grandson of Charlie Chaplin, and great-grandson of Eugene O’Neill, the apple certainly hasn’t fallen far from the tree. I adore this type of theatre.
Take a look and tell me what you think.

I love this – thank you for the steer. I had the privilige of meeting Geraldine Chaplin many years ago when I worked for the William Morris Agency and my mentor was her agent. One helluva talented family 🙂
Ain’t that the truth! I completely adore this guy and his work.
I love it! It’s wild and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

You’re welcome. I am hoping to see him live in France somewhere (anywhere) in the next few months. Thanks you for stopping by and commenting.
