Comedy: Russell Kane

What is it with us and smallness? We Brits love it - being tiny but fierce, close but distant. Russell Kane returns with a new blisteringly big-small show. Watch him ejaculate thoughts about smallness; on keeping things small when life gets big.

An old man is comatose and near death... the play of The Tempest is his last living second, a time in which his loss is assuaged and his enemies forgiven. With an enchanting mesh of mime, masking, movement, and the music of voice, the two actors conjure storms and apparitions, lay bare treasons and counterplot, and finally transport you to a ‘brave new world’ of love and reconciliation.

Performed by five human sausages and a big band set in a burlesque butcher’s shop, this cabaret opera mixes varied musical styles with dark comedy.
