For three weeks in August, the actors of Matinee will perform daily at the Pleasance fringe festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. From there, the actors will move on to Slovakia's humor festival. But before they go, they will offer two local performances at The Lab as part of the Jerusalem Film Festival - on Tuesday and Saturday night.
The show is an Israeli tribute to Hollywood films through dance, pantomime, acrobatics and theatrics. It takes on Superman, King Kong, the Pink Panther, Bruce Lee and Freddy Kruger, among others. There are no props, costumes, makeup or dialogue - which makes it easy to transport and translate.
