Bread & Circus – World Buskers Festival
G – family, physical theatre – Australia
Kaput, the multi award-winning family show has melted hearts of all ages around the world with its glorious brand of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness.
Be swept up in the mayhem that is the larger-than-life “elegant buffoon” Tom Flanagan, as one man’s life is flipped upside-down by the lonely, dust-covered world that surrounds him. This clumsy “Mr Fixit” takes one step forward and two-steps back in a highly skilled, hilariously funny and beautifully poignant bit of madness.
Kaput opened early 2012 to a premier sold-out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in the Garden of Unearthly Delights, where it was nominated for Best Circus & Physical Theatre. It then went on to receive critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where the show won Mervyn Stutter’s Spirit of the Fringe Award, and was listed by The Scotsman as one of the top five comedy shows at the Fringe.
Since then, this silent slapstick acrobatic comedy show has toured four continents, won countless awards and collected fans from 5 to 95 years old.
