Ottawa Fringe 2013. Nhar Moves

Reviewed by Barbara.Gray

Chris Kauffman sets up his props, his screen, where the background of his performance pops up,  and promptly becomes Nhar, who reminds us of a cross between Harpo Marx and Charlie Chaplin with the hat, coat and moustache. Here, however his  character is Pedro (a disgruntled warehouse worker).    Pedro discovers a gold fish, and this little creature is the starting point for a brilliant  illustration of  many issues society deals with today as well as Pedro’s own personal need for love. Kauffman is a master mime although Pedro does murmur a few words and sing  a few songs. Nhar Moves is creative theatre and a must on your Fringe list.
