Comedy and circus sensation Thom Monckton will astound you in The Artist: an incredible feat of physical strength, skilled theatrics, and comedic storytelling. To be in the audience of a Thom Monckton performance is spellbinding, as he makes a spectacular experience out of the ordinary.

An artist arrives at his paint-spattered studio ready to create a new work. He waits for inspiration. When it finally comes, things don’t proceed quite as he would wish. For this artist, every task is filled with challenges – chaos is unavoidable.

“It is always enjoyable to witness a perfect performance” – Helsingin Sanomat (FIN)

“Monckton is a delight” ★★★★★ – The Stage (UK)

“His ability to hold our attention and make us laugh is a masterclass in clowning” – Scotsman (UK)
