Does the holiday season make you crazy? Feel some solidarity with the "Certified Lunatic and Master of the Impossible" at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center on December 14. Charlie Chaplin meets Cirque du Soleil in Kubínek's acclaimed comedic solo performances—an artful composite of vaudeville, spectacle, music, and magic. A self-described visual poet, he incorporates props and uses his body as one, too. A given show may find him flying through the air with a pair of bat-like wings or doing a backward somersault with a glass of red wine balanced on his head while playing a mandolin. With awards ranging from the Samuel Beckett Theatre Award to the International Grand Champion of Housefly-Catching, he moves seamlessly between the highbrow and the lowbrow, managing to both delight and awe.
