          Fool Muun Komming: Alien Encounter

          Sam Kruger, last year’s winner of Outstanding Solo Performance, is back with a new show featuring The Alien who is coming to meet The Earthlings. What will happen this time? Last year, the alien tried to learn language by intercepting texts and his verbal experimentation was brilliant. This year’s virtuosity is on display in his physical embodiment of the alien, who moves with the flexibility and beauty of a mime well-versed in the art of physical comedy.

          The alien talks to the audience and a few times acknowledges that “You look confused.” Indeed, we are. There’s something important that he needs to tell us but he keeps distracting us with his antics: throwing invisible balls; reading our minds; presenting a love story using only his index fingers on either side of his nose; and summoning other imaginary characters to join him on stage.

          The voice in the sky, the moon, who prefers to be called “Love Rock,” interrupts the fun to urge the alien do what he’s supposed to do. (Is that disembodied voice you, God?) But alas, the alien tells us that the voice of the moon does not exist and we feel the emptiness that this admission brings. His loneliness and isolation moves us and a surprise ending leaves many in the audience wiping tears from their eyes.

          The beauty of this show cannot be described in words but must be experienced. The latest installment is entertaining and moving. Be not afraid to meet something other-worldly at The Arts Project.

          Fool Muun Komming: Return of the Alien

          You read the full title of Sam Kruger’s show – Fool Muun Komming -BeBgWundrful/YEsyes/4sureHi5TruLuv;Spank Spank:SOfun_Grate_Times – and you think, “What is this?” You begin to watch Kruger’s show, and you think, “What is this??!!?” Then suddenly, you find yourself mesmerized by this perplexing creature, willingly following him wherever he takes you. The voyage is not linear, and sometimes not understandable – is this his real story or is it all in his head?

          With his only prop a garbage bag, this strange and charming alien fills the stage with a very physical and profoundly touching performance. For those of you who had the chance to see his show last year, it deserves another viewing. A lot has changed, but the essence – Kruger’s expressive range and his powerful, playful physicality – remains. This is Fringe theatre at its finest: unconventional, unexpected, and unbelievably good.

          Fool Muun Kumming! features an alien intelligence approaching planet Earth and sending out a message heralding his arrival. For an hour, actor Sam Kruger performs as an alien explaining his purpose, mission and journey and Kruger is vividly compelling. His alien is a marvelous creation, a vast intelligence who has taken on a human form.

          Kruger’s character is awkward yet earnest approximation of humanity whose stand-up, electroshocked hair seems to have been dropped awkwardly onto an otherwise bald head and whose movements suggest he’s imitating human actions he’s seen without having ever carried out in his own body.

          While a portion of the show is devoted to Kruger performing his impressions of humanity’s culture from playing catch to dancing, Fool Muun Komming! eventually shifts to darker ruminations on the human propensity for self-destruction, the temporary nature of life and how the loneliness of each person is similar to being an alien stuck on an asteroid in outer space.

          As the show closes in on a conclusion, the show takes on urgency and desperation as the jokes fall away and Kruger finally reveals his alien’s true reasons and his function. There’s a peculiar and heartfelt poignancy as the show embraces its own finite situation both within the show and it’s timeslot in the venue and the play is captivating from start to finish.

          Wow.
          One sentence to describe what I just saw? – I’m not sure.
          Very interesting to see an alien’s take on what Earth is and who we are as Humans.
          I found it to be a very interesting, thought-provoking and giggle-inducing piece of theatre.
