What do you get when you mash together Pixar, Maurice Sendak and Doctor Who? A time and space bending adventure by mask imagineers the WONDERHEADS, that’s what.
When two unlikely strangers discover a mysterious device at a bus stop, they are whisked away on a cosmic journey through time and space…but will they claim their place in the universe and find their way home?
The Middle of Everywhere is performed in full-face mask, a form so magical it will delight the child in you, whether you’re eight or eighty. Wordless and whimsical, it has been described by audiences as watching a living cartoon, or live-action Pixar.
Called “a captivating, wordless journey of physical theatre” by the Edmonton Journal, this unparalleled piece of physical theatre will transport you along with Winston and Penny on a fantastical journey that must be seen to be believed!
“The Middle of Everywhere is about connections within the chaos, it’s about letting go, it’s about determinism and escape and seeing the ordinary through new eyes.”
