“Members of Our Limbs” is a frenzy of absurd and eccentric clowning. It follows the antics of three sporadically violent and markedly edgy characters as they are dragged unwittingly through their own show. The patterns of the ordinary world mixed with principles and influences of clowning are put on an operating table and dissected. A suitable set of body parts are selected and a clown Frankenstein is produced like you’ve never seen before. It’s frantic, it’s visual, it’s skillful and above all; it’s funny. “This one-night-stand by a trio of clowns as zany as any we have seen here for decades gave immeasurable delight to the capacity audience at Bats… Various absurdities are echoed from Mr. Bean, and even Charlie Chaplin, yet each of these clowns is original in content and style. Their timing is impeccable, and great physical agility is coupled with plasticine faces, crazy hair and a myriad sound effects. They interact with audience members in a quite poignant way, and their satire although often barbed, is never unkind. Such praise is not earned, or given, lightly.” The Dominion Post, 14.10.2011

The show is not recommended for children under 7 years old.
