Thunderfoot

 

Review


Aaron Malkin gives a masterful performance in this inventive, sometimes cheeky, and consistently fascinating semi-musical one-human show.  As Malkin’s character tries to discover the truth about the death of his mother, a mysterious giant appears, terrifying his community.  Having only a folding chair for a prop, Malkin’s use of movement and expression creates all scenery from the stage upward, manifesting the countryside, schoolyard misadventures, and bookshop mysteries in empty space.  Drawing on audience participation to enrich his story and provide variety at critical moments, Malkin’s show invites clamour, laughter, and periodic suggestion from the crowd, making Thunderfoot an excellent choice for Fringe-goers who don’t just want to sit quietly in their seats.  Above its skillful humour, Thunderfoot is a touching story in which Malkin explores his relationship of the loss of his mother, a lack of answers growing up, and the reality of finally knowing what really happened.  -Will Belton
