About

The Penguin & I - Living Room Circus
Tuesday 7 May - 8pm
Tickets £11 inc booking fee

'The Penguin & I' by Living Room Circus takes the ordinary and turns it on its head.

What have you lost down the back of your sofa? Change? keys? a memory? This performance tells an absurd story of a man chasing a penguin through his memories in an attempt to piece together events from the previous night. He finds more down the back of his sofa than you would ever expect.

The performance is immersive, blending high-level circus skills with dance, physical theatre and live music.

‘The Penguin & I’ uses the seductive entertainment and spectacle of contemporary circus to engage the audience in a deeper exploration of the themes with the performers – what is the place of emotional connection, sexual desire, fantasy or generosity in the lives they are living?

"One of the most inspirational and immersive pieces of circus performance I have ever seen" - Audience Member

"This was a slick and enjoyable mix of absorbing surreality, fascinating ideas and polished dexterity, studded with a couple of breathtaking tricks" - Graham Watts, Reviewer
