Stuff is a love story, but not the type of one you’ve seen a million times before. This is another kind of love story, maybe everybody’s love story.
It’s playful, funny, sad and familiar. Lead clown for Cirque du Soleil, Sean Kempton, mixes comedy, mime, clowning and the odd bit of dance in this absurdist show about love.
The much-loved result is a highly energetic and entertaining, physical piece that takes its audience on a journey through the fragility, hilarity and awkwardness that love can, more often than not, entail.
Sean has over 23 years of international experience as an actor, circus performer and director with a career spanning the West End, Broadway, The Kennedy Centre, and Las Vegas. He was an artistic director and part of the founding team of Generating Company, who tour large scale circus shows around the world, alongside designer Mark Fisher and producer Paul Cockle.
Kempton was an original cast member in Franco Dragone’s epic water show Le Reve in Las Vegas and one of the lead clowns in Cirque Du Soleil’s productions of Kooza, Quidam and Varekai touring worldwide.
As a comedian, he has been entertaining audiences with his own brand of humour in cabarets and variety shows throughout the US and UK.
Sean has been a successful teacher over the past 15 years developing his own style of workshops teaching physical theatre and comedy in Britain and is currently a core teacher for the National Centre for Circus Arts.
It is safe to say you will be in for treat on Thursday, May 25 when the show comes to the Arlington Arts Centre at 8pm.
Tickets are £10. You can book online at arlingtonarts.co.uk, or by calling the box office on 01635 244246.
