The Teatrioca Ca Foscari of Venice at the Berlin Pantomime Festival ca 2003.

Their lighting was totally colored yellow/orange for these scenes. That made the whole scene very dark and hard to expose with a fast enough speed to keep things sharp. Filtering on the computer using Adobe Photoshop has helped the scene.

But for all the difficulties and lack of ideal sharpness, the Teatroioca Ca Foscari was, at least at that time, the keepers and protectors of the true, real, ancient traditions of European pantomime that had been carefully handed down and preserved over centuries, probably even longer.

Their productions were the thread that bound the whole festival together and, as such, are worth posting, even though the photographic quality is somewhat lacking.
