Acrobat, poet, clown, magician, James Thierrée creates indefinable visual stage works that tread a delicate tightrope between circus, dance and theatre.

Using handmade props, mime and an elusive sense of storytelling, Thierrée’s intoxicating, wordless creations capture an absurd playfulness and a naive sense of wonder, conjuring unforgettable images that lie somewhere between Salvador Dalí and Tim Burton. Expect the unexpected and you’ll not be disappointed
