From Salvador Dinosaur, the creators of the multi-award-winning Otto & Astrid – Die Roten Punkte comes a brand-new murderously funny farce, The Anniversary. Leave your preconceptions at the door and expect the unexpected.
Daniel Tobias (The Orchid and the Crow) and Clare Bartholomew (The Long Pigs) return to Edinburgh Fringe with physical comedy theatre that offers a visual feast from the set design to the absurd and joyful (sometimes raging) energy of its two characters Jim and Barb.
In a wonderous display of physical comedy, the absurd is heighted and without dialogue, Jim and Barb’s thoughts are writ large for all to see. Their dreams for the perfect celebration of their love quickly fall away as they face the reality of a semi-century together. Put yourself in their shoes: after 50 years of marriage, can you imagine how much simmering resentment is about to boil over? They’re just about ready to kill each other. Quite literally.
The Anniversary is a physical comedy house party from hell. A blend of top-notch clown and physical comedy performance with the brains of a super sharp wit… and knives.
