Pss Pss

This show is unlike much else at Fringe this year. Put on by the company Compagnia Baccalà, this show received huge acclaim when it was at the Fringe in 2014. Since then it has won 15 international prizes, and has toured all over Europe. It is a lovely, moving hour of acrobatics and theatre, and will keep you on the edge of your seat with simple childish joy. This show is not to be missed.

A lovely, moving hour of acrobatics and theatre

Pss Pss is brought to life by the terrific duo of clowns Simone Fassari (‘him’) and Camilla Pessi (‘her’). They feud. They play. They fall in love. Together, they weave an event that is an absolutely charming sight to witness – their show is an utter delight.

There is no dialogue during the show. Everything is represented via dance and music. These actors are incredibly expressive through their faces, and their performance is beyond lovable. This is fun for the whole family. The kids will love it, and the adults will too. But, if you do bring kids, be mindful that it is a completely silent performance. For this reason, it’s recommended that no children under eight be brought to the show.

Overall, the acrobatics are beyond fantastic. It’s beyond amazing what the duo are able to do onstage. This duo performs stunts that will leave you in open-mouthed awe. They also play a few songs through the course of the show that prove enormously heartwarming. As a whole, this show feels like a mix of Charlie Chaplin and Cirque du Soleil. It’s fantastic and certainly required viewing this Fringe season.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

They're back. A huge hit in 2014, the gem of the Fringe, joyous, brilliant, hilarious, sophisticated and ingenious. An hour of pure happiness. Inspired by Chaplin, Keaton, Fellini and the stars of silent films, two contemporary clowns take to the stage to play out the game of desire in a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite expression. You've never seen anything like it. 'Extraordinary... riveting... infectious' ***** (Stage). 'Hilarious' (Herald). 'Outstanding' (Independent). 'A total delight. See it, see it!' (TotalTheatre.org.uk). Winner of 15 international prizes. Award-winning, funny, virtuoso and charming. Do not miss.
