To Do List Daily: Trygve Wakenshaw: Nautilus – Mon 18 Jan

Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Trygve Wakenshaw brings his Nautilus mime comedy show to London’s Soho Theatre!

The third and final instalment in silent comedy legend Trygve Wakenshaw’s Underwater Trilogy explores the form of mime and asks why we have an imagination and what its function is…

Perhaps we dream so we can make the world a better place.

 

This is a great chance to delve into the astonishing London International Mime Festival whilst having a nice pint at Soho Theatre’s buzzing bar.

Back in 2014, our reviewer Laura Edmans saw Trygve Wakenshaw’s previous show, Kraken, at the Edinburgh Fringe – here’s what she thought…

TRYGVE6★★★★ Kraken | Underbelly, Cowgate

We had absolutely no idea what to expect from this show, and that was probably a good way to go into it…

The unexpected hour of randomness was very enjoyable. This is crazy, silly, funny mime-comedy, from a man on his own onstage, being a bit of a ‘fanny’ in true Scottish fashion. It’s also actually pretty clever too, if you’re looking for it. Lots of laughs and a little bit of audience participation. Oh, and some nudity!
