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 75 minutes long, 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?


‘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)
‘So magical, so delightfully playful. Wakenshaw leaves his audience slack-jawed with admiration.’
★★★★ (The Scotsman)
