    Total Eclipse

    'In a moment, my mum is going to step out of the moon'

    A humorous, playful, truthful and thought provoking piece of theatre, which challenges taboos and explores the impact of grief on our relationships and mental health.

    Lily and Paco's relationship is in crisis after having both lost their mothers in the same year. They arrive to the top of a mountain in anticipation of a total lunar eclipse. For Lily, the eclipse signals that the spirit of her mother is about to step forward from the Moon to say goodbye to her while Paco just wants to relax, enjoy a picnic and take a few pictures. At the moment of the eclipse it gets darker than it has ever been before. A moment of darkness that pulls at the boundaries of their understanding of life and their relationship.

    ‘I don’t think I have ever cried and laughed at the same time before! I discovered such a powerful and meaningful piece. Thank you for this gift!’ Asako, London Clown Festival

    'Loved laughing out loud and I found the piece poignant so a lovely mix. Great to see Clowns doing this kind of entertainment' Carol Thompson, Clown Facilitator and Laughter Leader at Nose to Nose

    'A funny performance that also inspired deep thoughts about death and relationships.' Ginny, Applied Theatre student at Central School of Speech and Drama
