New Zealand’s answer to Mr. Bean, but with more physical prowess! Comedy and circus sensation Thom Monckton will knock you out with his physical theatre masterpiece about a nutty painter with an almighty creative block. The Artist is a hilarious story without words, busting with hysterical clowning, acrobatics and wordless hi-jinks, all in the pursuit of creating art. It goes a bit like this: An artist arrives at his paint-spattered studio ready to create a new work. He waits for inspiration. When it finally comes, things don’t proceed as he might wish. For this artist, chaos is unavoidable. The Artist is perfect for anyone from 7 to 97years old.
