The Invisible Man

Mixing ingenious tricks and anarchic theatre, this unpredictable and quirky show is brimming with fun and exciting magic.

The Invisible Man

About The Invisible Man

Two artists, a stage technician and a musician are waiting to start their show. Everything is in place, but where is the audience? Things are clearly unravelling. Who is playing the piano? Why is a coffee mug floating through the air? And who is that ghost sneaking off with the extension cord?

Mixing ingenious tricks and anarchic theatre, this unpredictable and unruly show explores the border between fiction and non-fiction. Theater Artemis, widely applauded for creating wonderfully absurd theatre for young audiences, return to the Festival with a show about everything you don’t see and the joy of remaining unseen.

Age 4-11 years

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Invisible Man are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
