Avner the Eccentric – “Exceptions to Gravity” – Canal Park Playhouse – March 2013

“EXCEPTIONS TO GRAVITY”

I hadn’t seen Avner the Eccentric perform in quite a long time. I think it was June 1983 at the First New York Clown Theatre Festival. His show was delightfully simple and very funny! At close range (Canal Park Playhouse is a very intimate theatre) Avner was able to relate to the audience in a very unique and personal way.
