DON'T BE LONELY and Theatre Beating
Kraken by Trygve Wakenshaw (NZ)
From the award-winning Gaulier-trained clown who made smash hit SQUIDBOY comes Trygve Wakenshaw’s highly anticipated new physical comedy, KRAKEN.
Similar in style to SQUIDBOY (Best Comedy, Auckland Fringe 2013), which sold out at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, garnering critical acclaim as well as a Total Theatre Award nomination, KRAKEN is a “masterful...wonderfully absurd” (Fest) one-man show performed using mime and mouthsounds and the imagination of its audience.
An idiotic, stormy, arthouse opera, KRAKEN is a stunning arena spectacular packed into a 60-seat venue. Oozing with whimsy. Dripping with charm. Leaking beautiful strange comedy. A dark and stormy stream-of-consciousness narrative about the fear of change and the ocean floor. Bring an umbrella. Change is inevitable.

"Well-executed and charming physical comedy...a real and sophisticated piece of art. ✮✮✮✮" Broadway Baby (UK)
