    Ramesh Meyyappan Productions

    At work and in his home, Joe Kilter has his daily set routines. Although some people think Joe is obsessive, Joe would prefer not be thought of at all. When an unexpected event changes his everyday habits Joe's world is turned askew. His life is no longer his own, he's off his game... Joe Kilter is most definitely off-kilter.

    Feeling more and more isolated, Joe's life seems increasingly impossible and perhaps the only solution is to exist in darkness. Exploring mental well-being, identity, and those unsettling times when you feel a little bit different from everyone else, Off-Kilter is a darkly comedic visual theatre production, incorporating illusions, masterful physicality and dynamic, non-verbal storytelling.

    Ramesh Meyyappan's award-winning solo performances and collaborations have toured extensively, both nationally and internationally to much critical acclaim, most recently with his production, Butterfly, which was presented at manipulate in 2015. Ramesh is currently part of the Design Team for new BA Degree for Deaf Actors at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

    This performance is part of manipulate Visual Theatre Festival produced by Puppet Animation Scotland. View the full manipulate programme, here.

    • Jaw-dropping display of both pure physical comedy and magic...devastating moments of beauty, humour and pathos...this is a timely, deeply heartfelt gem.
      The List
    • A brilliant physical performer, Meyyappan's control and expressiveness of movement are magnetic, and he emanates a humour that constantly invites empathy.
