Auguste and The Moon

An adaptation of Henry Miller's The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder

Auguste and The Moon

The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder, according to Miller, is his only composition to draw inspiration "from the blue". The complex story follows the journey of Auguste, the famous clown who finds nothing easier than to make his audience laugh, but suffers dissatisfaction night after night. Through his performance, instead he seeks more, stopping at nothing less than attempting to bestow a lasting joy to his audience. It intricately explores the nature of work, the essence of happiness, and the longing to shake free of everyday life and to find something more.

This short story has been adapted by Up The Ante, who have developed the piece attentively using their explorative approach. Auguste and The Moon is a contemporary piece that melds physical theatre, improvisation and clowning with media and composition.

Show dates: 14th, 15th & 16th April.

Show times: 7.30pm / Doors 7pm

Matinee Saturday 16th April: 2pm / Doors 1.30pm
