Making a fine art of physical comedy, Thomas Monckton’s new show is set in an artist’s studio. But each task is a challenge, and chaos proves unavoidable.
An artist arrives in his paint-spattered studio ready to create a new work. He waits for inspiration. When it finally comes, things don’t proceed quite as he would wish.
The Artist is accomplished and inventive comedian Monckton’s second collaboration with Circo Aereo, after 2015’s The Pianist proved a smash hit with around 300 performances around the world.
