Members of Our Limbs
Kallo Collective (Finland)
Members of Our Limbs is a frenzy of absurd and eccentric clowning. It follows the antics of three sporadically violent and markedly edgy characters as they are dragged unwittingly through their own show. The patterns of the ordinary world mixed with principles and influences of clowning are put on an operating table and dissected.
A suitable set of body parts are selected and a clown, Frankenstein, is produced unlike anything you’ve seen before. It’s frantic, visual, skillful and above all – it’s funny.
“Various absurdities are echoed from Mr. Bean, and even Charlie Chaplin, yet each of these clowns is original in content and style. Their timing is impeccable, and great physical agility is coupled with plasticine faces, crazy hair and a myriad sound effects. They interact with audience members in a quite poignant way, and their satire although often barbed, is never unkind. Such praise is not earned, or given, lightly.” The Dominion Post
Suitable for ages 10 to adult.
