Following his sellout residency at Leicester Square Theatre in 2015, award-winning performance artist Kentaro Kobayashi returns to London this summer to bring his hugely popular solo show Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life exclusively to Notting Hill’s Print Room at the Coronet for a very limited run.
Featuring his original animations and manga-style drawings, Kobayashi’s mime-based performance immerses the audience in a spectacular world of art and magic. Playfully mixing live performance with film and projection, Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life glimpses into the solitary universe of one gentleman’s daily existence. Obsessed with the trivial, absorbed by seemingly unimportant pursuits, Mr Potsunen’s story is tender, eccentric, beautiful and wonderfully funny.
Performer, writer and manga artist Kobayashi first performed the solo show series “Potsunen” in 2005 in Tokyo. Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life played a sold-out UK premiere run at Leicester Square Theatre in 2015, having been performed in Paris and Monaco, as well as extensively touring Kobayashi’s home country of Japan. 2017 sees his return to London by popular demand in Notting Hill’s adventurous new theatre.
