Following the success of KrakenandNautilus, his two solo shows at the Mime Festival, Trygve Wakenshaw joins forces with fellow New Zealander, Barnie Duncan (Calypso Nights) in this extraordinary celebration of the banal. A sold out hit at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe,Different Party is physical comedy at its best.
Picture the most mundane place imaginable descending into a world of absurdist fantasy. Business drones Grareth Krubb and Dennis Chang whittle away the minutes in the barren office of Ruck’s Leather Interiors, patiently waiting for the phone call that may or may not give them something to actually do. In between the drudgery of the 9-5, the minutiae of office existence opens up a fantastical world of fancy, where a sticky piece of paper turns men into pigeons, where briefcases are dogs, and where that elusive client is always a missed call away.
