Mad, risqué and uniquely eccentric. Critically acclaimed, award-winning Gaulier-trained clown, Trygve Wakenshaw presents his beautifully strange stream-of-consciousness idiocy in NAUTILUS. His hilarious and fun hit physical comedies are consistently a sell out at festivals around the world. NAUTILUS is the third and final instalment in the Underwater Trilogy of solo-shows with aquatic titles (KRAKEN, SQUIDBOY). It's the biggest and most daring, with his eyes on international arts festivals Trygve has created a show exploring both, the form of mime and asking why we have an imagination, what is its function? Perhaps we dream so we can make the world a better place.
‘So magical, so delightfully playful. Wakenshaw leaves his audience slack-jawed with admiration.’ (Scotsman)
‘The kind of funny you get when not just the rug but the whole floor and foundations are pulled right out from under you.’ (Guardian)
‘Trygve is a Looney Tunes creation made flesh…you can’t help but be carried away by the pure joy of his madcap landscapes.’ (Fest)

Created and performed by Trygve Wakenshaw
