Thunderfoot Review

By Ezekiel McAdams

                Thunderfoot is a one man show crossed with Tim Burton's Big Fish. A story told with truths and lies melded with a lot of heart.

From  Life and Depth in Vancouver, performer, Aaron Malkin tells the story of his mother's passing and trying to cope with it as a both a child and adult.  The story he cobble is a mix of truth and absurdum as Malkin plays multiple characters including a giant.

                Malkin's stage presence is sublime as able to weave back and forth into different characters, accents, affectations and body language easily.

                The show is well written and directed and at the end of the show everything feels wrapped up like a bow on an incomplete present. Malkin was able to interact with the audience easily, while he fished for some answers, his ability to roll with the answers was a surprise and delight.

                Special mention goes to Malkin's Scottish Mayor character who was the highlight of the show, especially when he interacted with the amused audience.

                Thunderfoot is a great one show for those who love tall tales, fantastical creatures and a lot of heart.
