Save Me A Balloon
PART OF THE CAMDEN FRINGE 2016
Presented by A Singing Donkey
London Premier From a Hot New Clown Comedy Duo
Come meet Michael and Maria, the unabashed, crazy, ridiculous old couple in the uplifting love story SAVE ME A BALLOON at the Camden Fringe in August following successful runs at The Brighton Fringe, Galway Fringe and Somerset Fringe. Written and performed by new comedy duo Ross Spaine and Marga Villalonga the show is about love, friendship, death and staying young at heart. Expect physical comedy, dancing, stage magic, King Kong and some balloons.
Visually simple yet beautiful the show moves from the ridiculous to the absurd building to the climax of the story. The result is a hilarious and moving performance played by a duo who complement each other brilliantly.
One half of the duo Ross Spaine said: ‘It’s kind of a clown show but also elements of a traditional theatre show with a clear story. It’s hard to give too many details without taking away the surprises so I’ll say no more. Come see it and have fun.’
Ross & Marga met and studied together at Ecole Philippe Gaulier in Paris and are now based in London. They worked on this production with internationally acclaimed performer and clown teacher Carlo Jacucci for artistic direction. They perform under their production company Cuckoo, selecting and creating all aspects of their productions from writing to sound, lighting and costume.
