Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life - Print Room at the Coronet
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
FOLLOWING his sellout residency at Leicester Square Theatre in 2015, award-winning performance artist Kentaro Kobayashi returns to London this summer to bring his hugely popular solo show Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life exclusively to Notting Hill’s Print Room at the Coronet for a very limited run – from July 5 to July 8, 2017.
Featuring his original animations and manga-style drawings, Kobayashi’s mime-based performance immerses the audience in a spectacular world of art and magic.
Playfully mixing live performance with film and projection, Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life glimpses into the solitary universe of one gentleman’s daily existence. Obsessed with the trivial, absorbed by seemingly unimportant pursuits, Mr Potsunen’s story is tender, eccentric, beautiful and wonderfully funny.
Performer, writer and manga artist Kobayashi first performed the solo show series “Potsunen” in 2005 in Tokyo. Prior to the Leicester Square Theatre dates, Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life was performed in Paris and Monaco, as well as extensively touring Kobayashi’s home country of Japan.
Anda Winters, Artistic Director of Print Room at the Coronet, said: “Since seeing Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life in 2015, I have been determined to bring Kentaro’s enduring performance to our beautiful venue. I’m thrilled to be able to present this stunning theatrical event to a London audience.”
Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life is suitable for ages 6+.
