About the show
The Penguin & I by Living Room Circus takes the ordinary and turns it on its head.
What have you lost down the back of your sofa? Change? keys? a memory? This immersive performance tells an absurd story of a man chasing a penguin through his memories in an attempt to piece together events from the previous night. He finds more down the back of his sofa than you would ever expect.
The performance is immersive, blending high-level circus skills with dance, physical theatre and live music.
Connection, trust and courage collide in Living Room Circus’ latest show.
What our audience say
“I booked The Penguin & I as our Christmas Show, I didn’t know fully what I had booked, so I was excited and nervous about what was to come. I saw the dress rehearsal and was blown away! What a show! It was like being in an art gallery and not understanding what you were seeing but was mesmerised with what was developing in front of you! The skill of the cast was incredible, never before have I seen some of the lifts they did. Magical, Mystical, Mysterious absolutely incredible”
- Zoe Dunne, Director of Shelley Theatre

- Graham Watts, Reviewer
