Description

In the attempt to create an absurd enigmatic clown performance, and in search for meaning and connection, a company of artists end up in Tokyo's Museum of Lost Things, where nothing is remembered forever. They immerse themselves into this new reality and frankly, it's a complete and utter mess. Embrace the chaos with StoneCrabs' new magical, thought-provoking, funny and blissful theatrical journey. Disclaimer: this performance doesn’t provide any medical advice, nor the meaning of life. Common side effects: rise of energy, strong thoughts, bliss and laughter.

This show is magical - it weaves in and out of clowning silliness, poignant sadness, strangeness and then back to pure delight. It plays with the concept of language, communication, confusion and cultural barriers. Note that it is billed as being suitable for 14plus, our 9 year old was mesmerised throughout. Listen out for some really beautiful singing...

Intriguing and charming. I was curious the whole time. What is this show ABOUT? It swirled from clown silliness to an undercurrent of pain - and the question was never really answered. But I'm still thinking about it, two days later. THAT to me is the mark of a great show.

Brilliant clowning. It's funny, it's easy to enjoy, it's deep, it draws you in!

Connection is at the heart of this creative production, both in its message and its relationship with the audience.
