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.
