SOLO: a two-person show
"An extremely special show"
"Hysterical, tragic, and often absurd"
“Funny and moving” -Edmonton Journal
“Ladies and gentlemen, my brother is dead.” So begins SOLO: a two-person show, an insightful physical comedy about two brothers who find themselves enmeshed in a puzzle about their lives and struggling to say good bye. The race is on – through steamy jungles, into the netherworld, and up a perilous mountain – to figure out how, and why, it all came to an end.
SOLO: a two-person show consistently leaves audiences in stitches and tears. Co-creators Matt Chapman and Josh Matthews create entire worlds using mime, sound effects, and acrobatics, displaying a kaleidoscope of eccentric characters and elegant imagery – all with a complicity reminiscent of real-life brothers. Exploring love and intimacy, death and loss, SOLO is a comedy of tragic proportions!
