FRENCH MIME ARTIST (article first published : 2001-11-1)

Born in France, discouraged by his family but determined to work with Marceau, the young Decol was trained at the International School of Mime and spent his first years performing in the streets and smaller theaters in France.

Some 20 years later, he now travels the world, entrancing and engaging people of all cultures with his silent international language of movement.

Timoléon Magnus was born in 1986, and is already more than 800 times old! This show portrays the tragically comic life of Timoléon – more than a person, rather an alter-ego of Decol. Performed in true pantomime style (which has its roots in 16th century Italy), Decol also acknowledges the influences of Keaton, Chaplin and Tati.

His show is especially enjoyed by children, who easily recognise, and respond to, the symbols and body language spoken. Adults will be moved by the subtleties and the realities expressed in his acting.

Tickets R35 adults There are discounted prices for block hookings and Alliance members. R25 children and members of the Alliance Française (R15 per child in school groups of 16), R25 per adult in groups of 10. To book phone 312-9582.
