Comedic actor Gaëtan Schmid’s ‘The Mating Game’ returns to Alexander Bar (76 Strand Street), where it had its first run under the title ‘Body Language 2: The Mating Game’, from Thursday to Saturday, June 2 to 4, at 7pm nightly.
Over the last 25 years Schmid has become obsessed with understanding our body language. The signification of our gestures. Our posturing. Our signs and signals. And what is their origin? What’s their initial spark? From the breath we hold when passing a stunning creature to our little pinkie we raise when drinking champagne. Every slightest movement has a specific raison d’être.
Audiences are invited to embark with Schmid on the discovery of the hidden secrets of our body language.
The show promises theatregoers a witty and revelatory journey spanning from the massive explosion of the Big Bang to the microscopic neurons flashing in our brains. “It is an off-the-rails TedTalk,” says director and Lara Bye, who kept performer and husband Schmid on the rails as long as possible to get his humorous message across.
