    UK Premiere
    Compagnie Sacékripa


    A manipulator of everyday objects - with a meticulous character, with a delicate and outrageously neat and tidy nature - finds himself at the crossroads between object theatre, miniature circus and involuntary clowning.

    A delicate, wordless show about the small obsessions of life. Those seemingly trivial fixations which, when fed by excessive attention to detail, can slowly but surely become unhealthy all-consuming manias which cause us to lose our minds completely. A man makes a cup of tea and eats a sweet. What can be more normal that that?

    Founded in 2003, Compagnie Sacékripa has evolved from its early street theatre origins and success, integrating the skills and expertise of its artists in juggling, acrobatics and physicality into theatre productions of physical humour, charm and occasional well-meaning pathos.
