Acrobat, poet, clown, magician, James Thierree creates indefinable visual stage works that tread a delicate tightrope between circus, dance and theatre. Using handmade props, mime and an elusive sense of storytelling, Thierree's intoxicating, wordless creations capture an absurd playfulness and a naive sense of wonder, conjuring unforgettable images that lie somewhere between Salvador Dal? and Tim Burton. Expect the unexpected and you'll not be disappointed. Swiss-born Thierree has teased audiences throughout the world for nearly two decades with his flamboyant theatrical creations, sometimes dazzling, sometimes funny, sometimes grotesque. He comes from an esteemed theatrical background, making his stage debut at the age of four playing a walking suitcase. His 2009 Raoul used mirrors, talking teapots and umbrella jellyfish to explore the erosion of individual identity, and in his 2013 Tabac Rouge he presented a Bosch-like, hallucinatory vision of a teetering totalitarian monarch. He blends visual comedy and a fantastical imagination in captivating shows that defy categorisation. The Toad Knew is Thierree's newest creation with his Compagnie du Hanneton. It celebrates the family, following the adventures of five characters bound by ties of love and blood, and bringing together dancers, contortionists, high-wire artists and Thierree's own extraordinary physical prowess. Intertwining dreams and childish terrors, burlesque and realism, The Toad Knew explores the raw, unforgiving love between brothers and sisters.
