Swiss artist James Thierre returns to the International Festival with an unmissable spectacle from his physical theatre company.
Following his sell-out 2016 show The Toad Knew, James Thierre returns to the International Festival with ROOM, a spectacular new show that blends live music, dance, mime and curiosities into a hallucinatory spectacle that defiantly rejects categorisation.
In ROOM, Thierre wants to renew his relationship with his audience. To begin a new chapter. To open the toolbox, dig deep, intensify, magnify, and find joy. To draw actors and audience closely together as only shared experiences can.
Thierre is one of Europes most extraordinary and versatile artists, using his talents to create magical dream-like performances that captivate, charm and inspire. With an unbridled musical ensemble, ROOM takes us on a multi-layered, outrageous journey through his extraordinary world of wonder.
