PSS PSS (Switzerland)

Saturday 21st-Sunday 22nd October 2017

An extraordinary physical performance blending contemporary clowning with theatre and circus.

Inspired by the era of silent films, two characters take to the empty stage in a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite humour. Poetic, surreal, ironic, acrobatic and infinitely enjoyable, they play out their unique and hilarious pas de deux through the universal language of gesture and look, without a single word being spoken.

Inventive and exciting, the characters' breath-taking fumble through mishaps, acrobatics and life will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre.

"Sometimes a show is such a total delight that it is hard to write about it without just gushing ‘See it, see it!’ – Pss Pss is such a show. See it, see it." TOTAL THEATRE

"… this gentle child-like dance of love and friendship transcends language and utterly captivates with imagination and fun." EDINBURGH GUIDE
