Mr Potsunen’s Peculiar Slice of Life is a stage show by the award-winning performing artist from Tokyo, Kentaro Kobayashi, who portrays the mysterious ‘Mr Potsunen’.
Featuring his original animations and manga-style drawings as a part of the scenic design, he invites the audience to his picturesque world where one-man show, art and magic are carefully merged together to form an act of humour and grace.
Being ‘potsunen’ in Japanese means being terribly lonely.
Fittingly, it is the name of this man, Mr Potsunen, who lives a hauntingly lonely life.
This solitary gentleman is obsessed with totally unimportant things and works really hard at things that are seemingly trivial.
For him, everything he does is just a part of his everyday life, but for the audience, it may be funny, beautifully sad and perhaps a bit peculiar.
Being a writer, manga artist and performer, Kentaro realised the entire show by himself and his extremely imaginative and magical piece of work captivated the London audience in 2015.
This year, Mr Potsunen comes back to London by popular demand.
His dream-like form of art is something that has to be experienced.
