Viggo The Viking
A 3 week research and development period at The Lyric Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles (Artistic Director Dr.Brown) with 3 loose work in progress shows and 4 days of intense work with Mats Eldøen at Det Andre Teatret i Oslo.
Viggo The Viking premiered with 2 sold out shows at Den Andre Teaterfestivalen at Det Andre Teatret i Oslo.
Playing for sold out houses at the Brighton Fringe in England, played in front for about 6 (?) people in Iceland Fringe (3 of them were Norwegian and 1 person worked at the venue) So i guess 2 Icelandic people saw the show in total, so thats like 1/16th of Icelands population.
The show then enjoyed a full run in Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with good reviews, a one off show at the first NIEU Festival in Oslo before ending its life where it all started at the Lyric Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles.

SOHO Theatre SATURDAY 9th JULY
The Last show of London Clown Festival!
CLOWNTS is a once-in-a-lifetime royal rumble, as three jesters (critically-acclaimed idiots Viggo Venn, Julia Masli and Sami Abu Wardeh) compete to please the King.
Fringe favourite John-Luke Roberts presides over this bizarre battle royale where only one clown can survive.
