James and Jamesey In The Dark Review

By Ezekiel McAdams

                James and Jamsey come from Vancouver, and are performed by Aaron Malkin and Alastair Knowles in a surreal  70 min production of two men with lamps on their heads  figuring out creation.

                Similar to other absurdist fare, the plot is not important both Malkin and Knowles display an elegant wonder and childlike innocence as they traipse around the stage and into the audio for some of the strangest performance theatre you will ever see.

                Malkin plays the more grounded of the duo as his character is curious but also cautious while Knowles lack of abandon is delightful.

                Special mention goes to the ten minutes the duo are in the literal dark and still make the experience riveting and engaging for the audience.

                James and Jamesey in the Dark is fringe and performance theatre at its best, both surprising the audience and filling it with a wonder and playfulness that is not often seen.
