“Something you have never seen before!” is what you can read on the streets about Glow! The Show. And it is true, indeed. It doesn’t matter your age, you have never seen a show combining so many genres like Glow!
The show was developed and created by Lior Kalfo with the collaboration of David Ottone (Yllana). It is a combination of theatre, cinema and comics; it is a performance of animation on stage. Glow! is full of effects and new viewing angles, that you can only see when watching a cartoon-movie.
The story centers on Glow – an out of luck nerd whose life seems dull and grey until he meets a girl who changes everything. Then it begins for them a dreaming adventure, where the darkness becomes a magical place and it finally turns itself into reality.
Two years of rehearsals for this show that gets the most of the black theatre giving a new sense and perspective to the stage and making the simple set up of the show a unique experience. Glow! is one of those shows that you use as a reference to measure the quality of other productions.
There are 14 actors in this show even if the audience can see only 3 of them. Not only human beings, but also big spiders and pop corns, among other surprises that will make everyone laugh out loud, will “invade” the public.
It is to underline the very precise work of all the actors, which makes the show perfectly work, where everything happens when and where it has to.
Glow! also developed a new jargon, a sort of Babel with more than 8 languages together, which makes the story easier to follow and to understand.
