This is slapstick reimagined, silent storytelling at its best — delightful, light-hearted and hilarious.
 The Times

Sometimes a show is such a total delight that it is hard to write about it without just gushing ‘See it, see it!’ – Pss Pss is such a show. See it, see it.
Total Theatre

One of the most magical shows on the circuit.

Clown

[[Inspired by the era of silent films, two characters take to the empty stage in a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite humour. An extraordinary physical performance blending contemporary clown with theatre and circus. Inventive and exciting, the characters' poetic and breathtaking fumble through mishaps, acrobatics, and life, will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre.

 

///Inspiriert von der Stummfilmära treten zwei Charaktere in einer zeitlosen Performance von packender Körperlichkeit und exquisitem Humor auf eine leere Bühne: eine außergewöhnliche körperliche Leistung, die zeitgenössische Clownerie mit Theater und Zirkus verbindet. Einfallsreich, klug und aufregend ist Pss Pss eine poetische und atemberaubende Darstellung zweier Darstelle voller Pannen, Akrobatik und Szenen aus dem Leben, wird ein anhaltendes Lachen hervorzaubern.]]


Takes the audience through a gamut of innocent emotions that are full of simple joy. Sensuous, insouciant and transporting, this gentle child-like dance of love and friendship transcends language and utterly captivates with imagination and fun.
Edinburgh Guide

An intricate, textured clown piece that ranges from powerful comedic minimalism to elaborate aerial theatre and circus.
