Body Language II: the Mating Game

Comedy • Running Time: 50 mins
Performed & written by Gaëtan Schmid | directed by Lara Bye | sound design James Webb
After ‘Body Language’ SOLD OUT 5 years ago, Gaëtan Schmid is back with more fascinating revelations in this high octane physical comedy. A journey spanning 400˙000 years of human evolution, exploring our (sometimes very confusing) mating rituals and hidden non-verbal messaging. A must see for the sake of the survival of our species!

Press for Body Language:

 “solo tour de force”

“Hilarious rollercoaster ride”

“Gaëtan Schmid at his rolling marvellous crazy best”

“Masterful”
Gaëtan is a Belgian theatre artist currently living and working in South Africa.

After studying theatre at the École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France he toured exciting new creations to festivals and theatres all over the world. Russia, Sweden, Romania, USA, Belgium, The Netherlands, England, Wales, Uganda, Andorra, Spain and Scotland.

Since arriving in South Africa 15 years ago – his South African wife (not wife then) told him to “come … come and have a look … couple of weeks max …” – Gaëtan produces, creates, writes and performs his own excitingly original one-man-shows … well, most of them are his own: The Belgian, Body Language, Rumpsteak (Fleur du Cap nominated), The Dog’s Bollocks, The Incredible Beer Show, the pigeon and The Comical Tragedy. The first 2 and latter 2 were directed by his extraordinary wife Lara Bye (London Road, The Flying Dutchman, Rainbow Scars, Yellow Man), mother of their son Matteo (11) – Minecraft specialist.
