“Clever, whimsical, imaginative, evocative and really, really funny.”
A YOUNGER THEATRE
“Inda Pereda made me giggle, snort, guffaw and squirm around in my seat. What a fun show. Go!”
“Demented and utterly delightful. Master at work!”
“I wish I made this piece”
“His visual and verbal clowning creates startlingly real and incredibly funny scenarios.”
CARN`S THEATRE PASSION
“The manic miming”
“We cried with tears of incredulous joy when we watched this brilliant show“
Inda Pereda’s hilarious one-man show uses physical comedy, sound and mime to build a wild, imaginary dreamscape bound up in exciting, ridiculous and grotesque situations -*ahem* emergency operations, unusual body musicals, the happy birth of mutant beings – and populated by a host of crazy universal characters – *err* annoyed japanese samurais, happy cows.
Through sheer spectacle and audience participation, «TRAPPED» unlocks a place where surreal worlds converge with nonsense, where irreverent moments lead to transcendent beauty. Posing the ultimate question: is all of life just a dream?
Inspired by the baroque spanish play «La vida es sueño» (The Life is Dream) of Pedro Calderón de la Barca and influenced by Patrice Thibaud.
Performed, created and directed by Inda Pereda.
Supported by Flavia Bertram.
Premiere June 2016 at the London Clown Festival.
