Vault Festival 2016: Squidboy
What will happen? No one knows, not even the squid
London’s biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. Watch this award-winning physical theatre from internationally acclaimed performer Trygve Wakenshaw about an imaginary friend who makes imaginary friends. What will happen? Nobody knows. Not even the squid. Touring since it exploded to cult success at Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, Squidboy has collected multiple awards and sold out around Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Performed on an empty stage, Trygve summons bags of crisps, a lion, a dog, a girlfriend and the romance of Jacques Brel with his bendy limbs, rubbery face, and loopy word-play. ★★★★ "60 sublime minutes of exquisite madness." – The Guardian ★★★★ "The Fringe's most wonderfully absurd illusionary universe." – Fest ★★★★★ “Impossible not to love” – Soundpond Bring a paper copy, or your phone, with you on the door. The venue can be hard to find – please leave more time than you usually would. Valid ID required.
"Sweetly inventive and brazenly original.”
