Cheers!: The Man The Sea Saw by Wolfe Bowart, Spoon Tree Productions (USA/Australia)

Clown & Circus x Puppetry x Interactive Film x Comedy

Some days a quiet picnic on a melting ice floe is not as straightforward as it seems. With a creak, a crunch and a splash, the best-laid plans can be cut adrift and a man can only surrender to the deep ebb and flow of daydreams, memories and magic...

Wrapped in a dazzling set that unfolds like a surreal pop-up book, this tender, touching adventure finds the calm harbour between acrobatic suspense, extreme hilarity and poignant themes of family, loss and love.

The Man the Sea Saw by Wolfe Bowart

Acclaimed physical theatre playwright-performer Wolfe Bowart presents the spectacular and enchanting The Man the Sea Saw.

Bowart brings the story to life employing circus skills and clown theatre, stage illusion, small and large-scale puppetry, audience participation, interactive film and lashings of comedy – a wholestage visual composition.
