New Zealander Trygve Wakenshaw at MIME London Festival 2016
NAUTILUS, London Premiere
Soho Theatre, Mon 11 to Sat 23 Jan, 8.45pm (not Sun 17) Sat mats 4pm
Runs 75 mins / no interval
NAUTILUS is the final part of rubber-limbed Trygve’s ‘underwater trilogy’, the follow-up to delirious, sell-out physical comedies KRAKEN (LIMF’15) and SQUIDBOY.
Oozing with whimsy, dripping with charm and magnificently mad, Trygve is his own animator in a cartoon world. A master of risqué innocence, he trained with Philippe Gaulier, developing a uniquely eccentric style of mime-comedy that has won him legions of fans the world over.

‘Trygve continues to hit the physical comedy jackpot’
