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. For this artist, every task is filled with challenges, until chaos is unavoidable. The Artist follows Thom Monckton’s previous collaboration with Circo Aereo, The Pianist (LIMF2015), which has proved a smash hit with some 300 performances around the world. New Zealand-born Monckton trained in circus in Christchurch and at the Lecoq School in Paris, before moving to Helsinki where he now lives. He is co-founder and current artistic director of Kallo Collective, whose Only Bones featured at LIMF2017, and one of today’s most accomplished and inventive physical comedians.Like The Pianist, this new show is co-designed by circus artist, choreographer and director of Circo Aereo, Sanna Silvennoinen.
