Told by an Idiot
Circus and theatre
In English

[EN] Described as a "madcap little gem" (Time Out), Get Happy is a Christmas show for kids and adults of all ages: wild, mischievous and a whole load of fun.

Enter a world of artfully controlled chaos. There's a mysterious bad that drops from a height. Shoes have magical powers. And the strangest egg sandwich is made in front of your eyes.

Physical comedy, live music, acrobatics, silly dancing and audience interaction all feature in this seasonal offering with a difference. Told by an Idiot has looked to the work of Charlie Chaplin, Dr Seuss and Pina Bausch to fashion an unexpected variety performance, bursting with quirky playfulness and off-the-wall humour.

Told by an Idiot explores the human condition through theatre that is bigger than life. We acknowledge the artifice of performance & make no attempt to put reality on stage, but we inhabit the space between laughter & pain which exists in the real world. Our work is rooted in the live event & thrives on a sense of spontaneity & risk, celebrating the unpredictability of performance. Through playful collaborative writing, anarchic physicality & a comedic sensibility we create genuinely spontaneous experiences for audiences. Through our work on stage & through our Taught by an Idiot participation work we foster a sense of openness, curiosity & the desire to play. We consistently experiment with what art can be & who can be involved, & in doing so our work blurs the lines between artist, participant & audience. Our commitment to accessibility informs the entwined relationship between our productions & our participation work. We take creative risks, we tell universal stories & we include everyone.
