"Clowning fun for modern times"
by Sascha Cooper for remotegoat on 29/05/17

Squiggle, Doa and Trapezo are clowns with a simple task - catching a bus. Throughout the scene that unfolded, we saw a multilayered piece that examined how modern technology has a huge impact on us as people. We switch off rather than connecting with all around us.

As this was a family show, the trio had to look at this in a really accessible way so that children of all ages could tap into what was happening. They pulled it off in such a way that they brought in traditional clowning slapstick comedy, as well as some beautiful poignant moments that made the audience want them to connect as a group rather than staying separate. Having this ability to melt even the hardest of hearts is a great thing to achieve in a group like this and should not be taken for granted.

This show was for both young and old alike and was a little hidden gem of a show.
