International circus sensation Thomas Monckton is back with his latest and greatest solo show, a physical theatre comedy masterpiece about a nutty painter with an almighty creative block.

The follow-up to Monckton’s worldwide smash hit The Pianist, The Artist is a hilarious and endlessly appealing story without words for comedy lovers, pranksters and the struggling artiste in all of us. 

Bursting with hysterical clowning, acrobatics and wordless hijinks in the pursuit of creating art, this exceptional feat of storytelling has wowed audiences around the world for a reason – it’s that funny, and that good.
