From the award-winning Gaulier-trained clown who made smash hit SQUIDBOY comes Trygve Wakenshaw’s multi-award winning new physical comedy, KRAKEN, a “masterful...wonderfully absurd” (Fest) one man show performed using mime and mouthsounds and the imagination of its audience.

KRAKEN is an idiotic stream-of-consciousness physical comedy. 

PRESS:

‘An hilarious hour of inspired physical comedy… Universally enchanting, enticing and enriching. Wakenshaw’s physicality is perfect.’ 
Chortle

‘Resistance to this relentless assault of naivete, boyish charm and naughtiness is futile.’
★★★★★ Metro

‘Delirious and surreal physical comedy…Boundlessly absurd.’ 
★★★★★ The Age

‘A blissfully funny hour of physical stream-of-consciousness and a joyous excuse to embrace your childish side.’
★★★★★ Time Out

‘It sounds mad, and it is. But in Wakenshaw’s masterful hands the audience completely buys into the physical and narrative laws of his world.’ 
★★★★★ Broadway Baby

‘Sweet, daring and unmissable.’
★★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

‘Kraken is crackers.’
★★★★½ Herald Sun

‘Beautiful madness.’
★★★★ SBS

‘This has to be one of the most fall-about, wet-yourself laughing hours of this year’s fringe.’
★★★★ Fest

‘Reminiscent of the young Jim Carey…rubber-faced, loose-limbed and wondrously expressive.’
★★★★ Independent

‘Beautiful Oddness.’
★★★★ Scotsman

‘Transfixing mime.’
