Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Marie Kallevik & Anna Marie Simonsen Troll (Norway,United Kingdom)

Marie Kallevik & Anna Marie Simonsen Troll (NOR,UK)

Direct from their critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe debut comes Troll, an “irresistibly silly” (★★★★ The Guardian) two-troll, clown comedy about connection, scape(goat)ing and being misunderstood. 

Fed up with years of misrepresentation, villainisation and exclusion, two trolls find themselves in a theatre, ready and desperate to tell their side of the story and the truth about those three goats. Inspired by Norwegian folklore, Troll is a heartwarming mash-up of music, storytelling, audience interaction, physical theatre and clown.

'Queens of the ridiculous… a unique and thoroughly amusing escape from seriousness.' ★★★★The Wee Review (UK) 

'A truly (troll-ly?) delightful afternoon of escapist whimsy.' The Telegraph (UK)

'A loveable duo, played as adorable rather than atrocious.' The Scotsman
