La Performance is a new piece of entirely visual theatre inspired by the poetic realism of classic French cinema, and features the brilliant Ramesh Meyyappan.
Devised and directed by Andy Arnold, La Performance uses visual storytelling to tell the tale of a doomed relationship between a clown and the woman he loves. Two actors, Her (Emmanuelle Laborit) and Him (Ramesh Meyyappan) rehearse backstage for a performance. When the curtain goes up, a clown and the woman the clown adores perform the rehearsed routines. But things go wrong. They argue. Who is it arguing though? Her and Him or their characters?
Runs 12-22nd October
For tickets and more info click hereWonder Boy – Bristol Old Vic
The fantastic Ramesh Meyyappan features in Wonder Boy – a Bristol Old Vic production, written by Ross Willis (Wolfie) and directed by the Olivier-award winning Sally Cookson (A Monster Calls).
Sonny is twelve. Living with a heightened stammer, he is finding his way in a world ruled by vicious vowels, confusing consonants, and let’s not forget the biggest beast of them all – small talk. A comic book hero of Sonny’s own creation helps him to soar above his bleak reality – but language is power and Sonny must find a way to be heard. When cast in the school production of Hamlet by the Headteacher, he soon finds the real heroes are closer than he thinks.
Wonder Boy offers fully integrated, creative captioning for all performances, as well as signed, relaxed, audio described and socially distanced performances, and will also be available to watch online.

A music and theatre spectacle, The Dark Carnival features sixteen performers and musicians, including BAA’s Natali McCleary, Ramesh Meyyappan, and Harry Ward.
The show tells the story of newcomers to the afterlife who discover that death is not actually the end. Incredulous at their continuity, they form their own necropolitan community where every night is party night: songs get sung, love gets made and whisky flows.
Created and performed by Vanishing Point and A New International, The Dark Carnival will transport audiences into an unexpected vision of the afterlife full of long-lost lovers, half-hearted ghosts, and songs.
The Dark Carnival will be presented at Tramway whilst the Citizens Theatre building undergoes an exciting two year redevelopment.
Runs from 19 February to 2 March
For tickets and more information, click hereOff-Kilter – Dance Base/Studio 1
Internationally renowned visual theatre artist Ramesh Meyyappan returns with a dark, comedic, highly physical production incorporating illusions and masterful non-verbal storytelling. Joe Kilter has his own daily rituals – some even call it obsessive. But then a sudden change in his routine turns his world askew: Joe Kilter goes Off-Kilter. Feeling increasingly isolated, life feels impossible, until he is forced to exist in darkness. Off-Kilter explores mental well-being, identity, feeling a little bit different from everyone else, and not quite being yourself. ‘One of his finest performances yet’ **** (Herald). ‘Sheer artistry… a profoundly absorbing and moving show’ **** (Scotsman).
Part of the MADE IN SCOTLAND Showcase
