More than a show, this spectacle aims to be a hymn to the infinite possibilities of bouncing in life: a tribute to all sports, a mockery to the wild competition between rivals in any contest. The result is a freakish portrait of the classic “golden boy” sportman, handsom and perfect, with is never ending tics e secretly kept superstitions…
Who is the Table Tennis Man, anyway?
He is the best player of the world…
He is a living legend….
He is venerated, as a pagan God, in China…
Who, from the public, will dare to challenge him?
The table tennis man is a all-out show centered on the expressive strenght and the extravagance of the main charatcter, who ghostly appears to pull the leg to the sportive champ stereotype. He brings on the scene a true challange with vibrant rachet hits, unverbal language moves and a series of improvised rithoms to keep alive the attention of the audience.
Thanks to his ability to hook the public, who really becames the third player in the field, called to play and take part to some acrobatic jugglings, the 3Tman is able to transform a sportive challenge in an extraordinary event who will see a grass smile as the actual, unique and real winner of the game!
The show is acted by actor Paolo Piludu, sapiently guided by the hands of internationally appreciated director. Mr. Domenico Lannutti.
