Catalan performers Xavier Marti and Christian Atanasiu have character observation down to a fine art in this series of silent, bittersweet sketches. Innocuous situations are taken to extremes, realistic yet absurd, where sentiment plunges into cynicism and the small tragedies of daily routine become too funny for words. Winners of the Innovation Award for Comedy at the Moers Festival, the duo makes its British debut with these performances. Leave higher sensibilities at home - come and enjoy a night of slapstick and sight gags, dark humour and physical comedy skills. ‘Simple everyday situations are brought wickedly, sometimes brutally to their humorous conclusion in wonderfully crafted scenes...’
