Akimbo Theatre Company (Int)
AKIMBO Theatre Company is back in Oslo with their action-packed, comic, tragedy thriller No One!
Strange things are happening in Wellston – haunted pub quiz, demonic powers, a floating woman.
‘No One’ is a modern re-mix of “The Invisible Man” as a high-octane thriller. It follows Thomas, a naive student, who befriends an invisible man named Griffin, bringing him fame and fortune, love and violence. Narrated by multiple characters, the story circles the truth, exposing the lies and misconceptions within each narrative. It questions if Griffin truly exists and if he is the violent monster people would have us believe.
Akimbo took HG Wells’ themes of misinformation, the abuse of power and how it feels to not be seen by society, and reimagined them for the digital age. The form reflects the rapid pace of modern life, the way rumours multiply, edit and re-mix. It is also an exciting challenge to create an invisible man on stage in a believable and human way, using mime, movement, puppetry, and sound.
Akimbo is a new theatre company founded at Ecole Internationale de Theatre Jacques Lecoq in 2021. Our work is violent, beautiful and comic with an innovative creative language that blends storytelling and physical theatre with martial arts, clown and the absurd. After successful shows at Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, and Oslo Fringe, they are back in Oslo!
