David Shiner - One of the world's top clowns

From Saturday Morning, 9:30 am on 6 October 2018

Boston-born David Shiner started his career as a street mime in Paris. He went on to perform with a succession of well-known companies, joining Cirque du Soleil in 1990, where his antics in the production of Novelle Experience, including stepping through, on and over much of the audience and his staging of a mock silent-movie melodrama, singled him out. He went on to write and direct the Cirque du Soleil production KOOZA, which is a return to the revue's origins with a focus on acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. KOOZA will tour New Zealand, starting in February 2019. Details: https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/new-zealand/auckland/shows
