Circus Theatre – Paul Levy talks to Monki from Monki Business about Not Somewhere Else. Monki (Also known as Benjamin) tells us how the show came into being and how we combines circus with theatre and other genres.
Monki’s debut performance colours outside the lines of the conventional circus genre.
In just an hour, he manages to conjure up a uniquely personal universe in which he combines double pole acrobatics with spoken word, live music, video and a touch of madness.
Monki is a character all on his own. He shares funny, sometimes moving, moments of his frustrations and fears about the way in which we live together.
‘Not Somewhere Else’ is an intimate and raw solo show that offers a look in to Monki’s chaotic and intriguing world.
This production is part of Brighton Fringe’s Dutch & Flemish Season 2018.
