Pickled Image presents Coulrophobia – Two Clowns Trapped In A Cardboard World...
Dik and Adam are Clowns! They couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone a surreal cardboard world. Why are they there and what are they supposed to be doing? They know something sinister is afoot (wearing really big shoes…) and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a ridiculous, anarchic, often hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for freedom.
A 75-minute show featuring slapstick, mime, puppetry and a LOT of cardboard.
non-stop riot of a show... a complete pleasure to watch as it moves seamlessly from the sinister to the touching, to the outright hilarious
side-splitting, terrifying, heart-warming performance
a perfect display of how good contemporary clowning can be... Adam and Dik are modern-day lords of misrule... This show proves that there is so much more to clowns than sad children’s entertainers and feeble horror-movie tropes. Think back to the clown at the last slightly disappointing circus you went to, and imagine how his performance might have fulfilled its potential. Coulrophobia is that fulfilment. Top-class clowning
one of the most hilarious and yet heart-breaking shows I have ever seen... Pickled Image’s interpretation of clowns is just simply dazzling, and next time they show up I’m going to be in the front row so as not to be left out of the party again
