American master of pantomime Dan Kamin collaborated with the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) to present a performance combining classic music and movement art Sunday to celebrate Children’s Day outdoors at the Wei-Wu-Ying Center for the Arts in Kaohsiung, the Chinese-language United Daily reported Monday.
Kamin gave children an unforgettable Children’s Day through his lively performing style and abundant facial expressions. He battleed the NSO Conductor Chang Yin-fang for control of the orchestra, gave a solo dance on the stage, and even created a invisible wall between the orchestra and the conductor.
Organized by Taiwan Mobile Co., Ltd. (TMC) for the 5th consecutive year, the concert has successfully attracted more than 10,000 audiences, giving them a visual and acoustic feast, the report said.
There’s no border and cultural obstacles in pantomime art, said TMC Public Affairs Chief Josephine Juan.
Comedian Kamin, who trained Hollywood movie stars Robert Downey, Jr. for his Oscar-nominated starring role in "Chaplin" in 1992 and created Johnny Depp's physical comedy sequences for "Benny and Joon" in 1993.
