Moving Stationery

By Thomas Monckton | 24 – 30 November 2014, Les Boreales Festival (France)

Moving Stationery is a wordless one-man physical comedy show combining dance, off-kilter object manipulation and clown technique. This comedy of errors revolves around Sigmund, the bewildered recipient of a new office job who is completely out of his depth. Sigmund’s desperate attempts to defend himself against his own mistakes spiral out of control until he is fighting an epic war against a (deceptively) harmless office. The elevator, his lunch, and the office stationery seems set to destroy him.

This charming show was first introduced to kiwi audiences in 2012 with a sell-out season at the New Zealand Fringe Festival where it garnered huge praise. Moving Stationery has since performed at the New York Clown Festival, as well as travelling to the Dunedin and Auckland Fringe Festivals and the Christchurch World Buskers Festival. This little family-friendly beauty is an energetic, wordless, absurd comedy that will hit you like an overdose of wasabi.
