Trygve Wakenshaw

[[New Zealand///Neuseeland]]

Physical Theatre / Mime

[[The New Zealand born Trygve (pronounced Trig-vee) is a physical comedy performer who studied at Ecole Philippe Gaulier, the prestigious Paris clown school with alumni including Sasha Baron-Cohen and Emma Thompson. Wakenshaw’s unique style combines mime, physical theatre and cheeky idiocy – he is mad, risqué and uniquely eccentric. The critically acclaimed, award-winning clown presents his beautifully strange stream-of-consciousness idiocy in three different shows. His hilarious and fun hit physical comedies KRAKEN, SQUIDBOY and NAUTILUS have been and are consistently a sell out at festivals around the world, while also touring is his award winning MAD OFFICE. ///Der in Neuseeland geborene Trygve (sprich Trig-vee) ist ein Physical Comedy-Darsteller, der an der prestigeträchtigen Clownschule in Paris, der Ecole Philippe Gaulier, mit Alumni wie Sasha Baron-Cohen und Emma Thompson, studierte. Wakenshaws einzigartiger Stil kombiniert Pantomime, Physical Comedy und einen frechen Idiotismus – er ist verrückt, gewagt und einzigartig exzentrisch. Der von den Kritikern gefeierte, preisgekrönte Clown präsentiert seine wundervolle Idiotie in verschiedenen Stücken. Die Wasser-Triologie SQUIDBOY, KRAKEN und NAUTILUS waren und sind nach wie vor Bestseller auf Festivals weltweit, wie auch sein prämiertes MAD OFFICE erfolgreich durch die Welt tourt.]]
