Magical and beautifully strange stream-of-consciousness idiocy from the award-winning and internationally acclaimed clown, Trygve Wakenshaw (pronounced ‘trig-vee’).

The mime artist’s eccentric, loose-limbed and family-friendly silent comedy adeptly swings from a chicken crossing the road (and wondering why) to a quick-draw spaghetti western via fabulous Broadway show tunes and a bevy of rebellious farmyard animals fighting against being dinner.

A 75-minute whirl of richly storied, high-energy mime, Nautilus is Wakenshaw’s third and final instalment in his Underwater Trilogy, following the hit physical comedies Kraken and Squidboy.

A trained clown from École Philippe Gaulier in Paris, Wakenshaw’s mime practice has evolved from free-flowing fantasia about a boy who thinks he’s a squid to more narrative-driven shapeshifting, marrying technical skill with a tale inspired by veganism.

Note: Lockout period applies.

Licensed venue: under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
