The Toad Knew by James Thierrée

The Toad Knew by James Thierrée

James Thierrée, the multi-talented European performer and director with an impeccable theatrical pedigree, creates beautifully weird and undeniably wonderful theatrical productions.

His latest, The Toad Knew,  is a spellbinding creation. Critically acclaimed, it is a seamless mix of mechanical marvels, seductive music, surreal humour and acrobatic finesse.

From within an ever changing fairytale lair, six characters emerge to act out their bizarre world. A piano plays itself, plates magically appear and disappear, a red-hooded woman with a swooping voice transforms into a lizard and a staircase spirals up to nowhere. At the centre of it all is Thierrée, the masterful physical clown. Helped by a squat servant and hindered by a man beast, he is partnered by Valérie Doucet cartwheeling, contorting and corkscrewing and the spinning aerialist Thi Mai Nguyen.

A unique theatrical experience and a triumph of wonders, miracles and surprises, The Toad Knew  is unmissable.
