Joyful, silly, and… soaking wet! Sakasaka is a delightful comedy for all ages that will add joy to everyone’s day! Created by Madagascar’s La Compagnie Zolobe, Sakasaka means “thirsty” in Malagasy. Using only a mop, bucket and a few bottles of water, these three clowns take the audience on many hilarious adventures that gently and sincerely explore the preciousness of water.
In the great tradition of slapstick clowns like The Three Stooges, La Compagnie Zolobe’s clown trio use physical comedy and body language to tell the story while staying completely silent. They are accompanied by two live musicians who play energetic tunes on traditional instruments such as the kabosy (a rectangular guitar) and djembe (drum).
Sakasaka runs for 50 minutes with no intermission. There will be a Q & A with the artists after the show (in French and English).
“Expect the unexpected as the trio of clowns take the audience on many adventures, including a Thriller dance tribute, a trip on the Titanic and open-heart surgery!” – Vancouver International Children’s Festival
