Description

Montreal's distinguished circus company present a show for teenagers and adults alike. Exasperated of waiting for the biggest international theatre to call, two clowns decide to accept the unthinkable contract... a children's birthday party! Join the duo for world-class juggling and acrobatics on their poignant quest for fame. An extraordinary physical performance blending contemporary clowning with theatre and circus, Kombini is as aesthetically beautiful as it is heart-warming and fun. A truly unique theatrical circus experience like no other!

Beautiful, hilarious, and heartfelt clown show. Thoroughly wonderful!!

A gap filler in what has been a hectic two weeks. Not world class juggling or acrobatics but two gentle and personable clowns who put on a good show. An enjoyable afternoon.

Im so happy I stumbled across this. An amazing show! Visually stunning, very emotional and thought provoking. My image of clowns has been changed. The best show i have seen this fringe (and I have seen a lot!)

Jenni Mack 94 days ago

Awful. There was no dance and physical theatre was minimum.
Would not recommend

A stop gap show for us - somewhat pot luck - but is probably, out of 7 shows so far, the one we remember! A two performer show - I probably would not go to clown shows as a norm - but these two are very good. Story telling, humour, and clowns that are so absolutely in their character. Kids in the audience loved it, as did the adults.

We went with my two daughters (8 and 14). We all loved it! It is very poetic, funny and interactive. I wish my husband and my son could see this. Highly recommended!

Sadly this was the first time I have walked out of a Fringe show.
There was little to no acrobatics and the ‘world class juggling’ lasted for about 15 seconds before he dropped the balls.
I think this should be advertised as a children’s show as there’s was some slapstick laughs for children. However they were not enough to keep me in my seat!

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 83 days ago

For a moment, forget everything you think you know about clowns. It’s difficult, with those enduring grins, the horror stories and pratfalls. Despite the misconception, the artform of physical clown comedy lies deeper than custard pies and tiny cars. Aerial feats, magical misdirection, gymnastics and, of course, a heaping measure...

More the pace of a canal boat than a steam train this beautiful piece is a study in mime and facial expressions. With some set pieces, a telephone and a clock, there is a pining for love story. A lot of popcorn and balloons, and some hand balancing acrobatics along the way.

More classic mime than slapstick comedy this is a clown show. The 2 x Clowns are very personable, sweet and cute. The taller clown very handsome. Unusual for Clowns.

Somewhere along the line, clowns have garnered a reputation for being either a bit stupid or a bit scary. ...

The phone rings. The pair of clowns onstage are waiting for the big call – the one from an international festival that will make them stars. Nope, not this time… Both are in traditional dress and make-up. One is definitely of higher status: tall, slim, obviously in charge – and...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 98 days ago

Let's be honest here: I've never particularly liked clowns. We're not talking coulrophobia; I've never been scared of clowns, or ever found them creepy. I’ve just never found them particularly funny; and, from my limited experience of circus shows, their often total reliance on dull slapstick and victimising knock-about has...
