Saturday 16 May
Performances:11am & 2pm
A hilarious and captivating clown show about fighting the stereotype, filled with bold aerial acrobatics and stumbling slapstick!
With more people being pushed into boxes and back by borders than ever, can Doa, Squiggle and Tropizo break out of their stereotypes?
In a world where being a clown is the worst thing imaginable, the red-nosed trio try to earn a living in an unwelcoming society. One by one they are taken to the clown pound, where they meet. Using their differences, they hatch a high-stakes escape. With slapstick on silks and the company’s trademark physical comedy, this playful and inspiring performance fights ‘otherness’ and celebrates the clown within us all.
C is for Clown uses aerial circus, clowning, and theatre in a unique fusion. With nonsensical language, projection, and physical story-telling, we welcome audiences no matter your background, language, or nose!
