The Catalan actor, director and puppeteer has adapted this ambition into a performance for a stage no bigger than a small table; a colossal spectacle in miniature. Its dramatic story unfolds in an exquisite, playful and highly imaginative production that also explores the relationship between performers, objects and viewers, and questions our own ideas of art and culture.

Born in 1976, David Espinosa performed with various Spanish dance and theatre groups, before establishing his own company, with Africa Navarro, in 2006. Together they have devised eight theatre shows, and have taken their work to festivals and venues all over Spain, South and Central America, to Moscow and to the Venice Biennale.
These performances, by and with David Espinosa, are related to the Tate Modern exhibition Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture and are part of the London International Mime Festival 2016, which promotes and champions contemporary visual theatre from around the world.

Age guidance: These performances are recommended for ages 12 and over.
