Trygve Wakenshaw: Nautilus

June 14 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm

Mad, risqué, uniquely eccentric and one of Hastings’ very own, Trygve (pronounced ‘trigvee’) Wakenshaw, is coming to Toitoi this June!

Trygve is an internationally, critically acclaimed, award-winning, and Gaulier-trained clown, who has been touted the genre’s “hip new icon” (★★★★ Guardian).

Raised in Hawke’s Bay, the now Prague-based, mime maestro has shared his beautifully-strange, stream-of-consciousness idiocy, Nautilus, at festivals and venues all over the world.  

This brilliant show features a cast of various animal characters, a very naughty man, and an answer to the immortal question: why did the chicken cross the road?

Prepare to observe open-mouthed as Trygve’s long-limbed body shapeshifts into a multitude of characters, scenarios, and jokes at a finger-snapping pace.

“So magical, so delightfully playful. Wakenshaw leaves his audience slack-jawed with admiration” (★★★★ Scotsman).

Don’t miss out on this energetic and hilarious show on Friday 14 June, 7pm at Toitoi – Opera House!
