GILLIAM CLOWNS AROUND
Terry Gilliam sent a note to us last week about a new project that will take him to Israel next month.
There is a good February 23 interview with Terry Gilliam on Haaretz.com
where he talks about the show. In the interview, Terry says about Polunin:
"He is a brilliant person and creative artist. I saw his performance
in London many years ago and was floored. A mutual friend made the connection
and then I attended the Twentieth Century's Best Clowns he organized
in Moscow for two weeks with clowns from around the world. His work
is astonishing. For years he nagged me to work with him and just now
it worked out for me to come to Tel Aviv, so I agreed."
