A bold and colourful performance celebrating the wobbly-ness of life, because we all wobble!

Acá Theatre: Award-winning clown company Acá Theatre, make witty and imaginative physical comedy for children and adults, using slapstick, acrobatics, sightgags and silliness. They are a supported company of The Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, where they are based, and were selected to be resident artists at Pegasus Theatre Oxford as part of the SPARK supported artists scheme 2019.
Acá are an independent company made up of Nicholas Eastburn, Francisca Stangel and Avi Simmons. The trio devise, write and produce their own theatre performances, which they have taken to theatre venues across the UK. and internationally. All of Acá's performances are home-grown and hand-made, from the characters, narratives and acrobatics, to the costumes and props. The performances are forged with love in a fun - and sweaty! - rehearsal room.
The company's practise is rooted in the Jacques Lecoq tradition of clowning, buffoonery, slapstick and acrobatics. In this philosophy of clowning, the Clown is the comi-tragic hero, and butt of the audiences’ amusement, representing the charming and sometimes uncomfortable, all-too-human aspects of us all.
