HALF MAN / HALF CLAM

 

He loves her (he thinks) but somehow he just can’t seem to tell her. Maybe it’s because he thinks too much, and talks too little. Maybe it’s because there just aren’t the right words. Or maybe it’s because he’s frightened. All the time.

 Fusing live music, puppetry and performance art HALF MAN / HALF CLAM [The Tragicomedy of A Tongue-Tied Man] examines the frustration of living in a grey world where connections are missed (or misunderstood at best), sentences hang half-finished, and life seems like one long stutter.

Will he ever work it out?

Perhaps the answer is easier than he thinks...

Half Man/Half Clam is a gem … a lovely piece with an unflinching sense of humour” (Total Theatre Magazine)
