Master of the Impossible to perform at CFA
PLATTEVILLE - The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Center for the Arts Performing Arts Series will present the comedic brilliance of Tomas Kubinek on Sept. 8 at 7 p.m.
Originally from Prague, this Jacques LeCoq-trained physical comedian has achieved a rare degree of comedic artistry that appeals equally to all ages. While Kubinek includes charming language in an often-silent art form, it is the visual impact of his improbable feats that truly astounds. His outrageous theatrics are executed with such conviction and charm that people of all ages are reduced to giggles, howls and screams of delight.
Tomas Kubinek's internationally acclaimed solo performances play to packed theaters around the world. After a sold-out run on Broadway, The New York Times lauded his work as "Absolutely expert!"
Kubinek is the recipient of numerous international awards including the Moers Comedy Prize from the International Comedy Arts Festival in Germany, the Schneestern Award from the International Festival of Humor in Arosa, Switzerland, and the Samuel Beckett Theatre Award from the Dublin Theater Festival in Ireland. Perhaps his most illustrious award is "The Gold Fly-Swatter".
He was proclaimed International Grand Champion of Housefly-Catching at the Moucheville Open in Moravia, beating competitors from 12 other nations.
Reserved seats for Tomas Kubinek are $8 for adults and $5 for children under 18 and are available through the University Box Office in the Center for the Arts.
The University Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and can be reached by calling 608-342-1298. The University Box Office is located in the lobby of the Center for the Arts on the campus of the UW-Platteville at 700 W. Main St. More information can be found at http://www.uwplatt.edu/arts/cfa.
