Touring since it exploded to cult success at Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, Squidboy has been picking up awards and selling out around Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
This award-winning, critically acclaimed physical comedy is all about the power of a squid's imagination, A Fisherman recounting his past love, and the links that bring the two together.
Performed on an empty stage, Trygve summons treadmills, bags of crisps, a lion, a dog, a girlfriend and the romance of Jacques Brel with his bendy limbs, rubbery face, and loopy word-play.
Trygve's playfulness bounces around the stage and even spills out into the auditorium where the audience are invited and encouraged to play along; eating imaginary crisps and believing in the world that is both there and not there.
