Before going to SPOLETO in May, and after winning ‘Best of Edinburgh Award 2011’, ‘The Scotsman Fringe First Award’ LEO is being presented in New York for a limited run.

Based on an original idea by and performed by Tobias Wegner.

Directed by Daniel Briere from Montreal.

Creative Producer Gregg Parks

Sets and Lighting Design by Flavia Hevia

Video Design by Heiko Kalmbach

Animation Realized by Ingo Panke

Costume Design by Heather McCrimmon

Choreography by Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola

Presented in New York by The Carol Tambor Theatrical Foundation and Circle of Eleven

I got a chance to sit down with Tobias before his show and ask him about the ‘origin’ of the idea and how it evolved into the multi award winning gem it is today.

After doing the interview I was very excited to see the show. It was a surreal blend of technology and classically performed acrobatics.

The integration of the video projection with the live performance, animation, live music and sound track was seamless.

Tickets available thru Telecharge or at the Clurman Theater Box Office – 410 West 42nd St.
