Trygve Wakenshaw – KRAKEN (Don’t be Lonely Presents…)

Trygve Wakenshaw

I am aptly left speechless after watching this fantastic clown show. Returning to the Fringe with his award-winning production, Trygve Wakenshaw captivates the audience through the sheer simplicity of the piece. Using just his body, and vocal sound effects, ‘KRAKEN’ takes the audience’s imagination to various weird and wonderful places, creating a vivid world where we see unicorns alongside rap battles. His clarity of expression and recurring motifs mean you can easily follow the journey and really immerse yourself in this experience. He has us eating out of the palm of his hand (almost literally). Daring, side-achingly funny and constantly engaging, Wakenshaw is a great pioneer for the modern clown and physical comedian.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 30 Aug.
