This unique clown-act seemed at first rather off-beat and unusual, but it clearly proved itself to be a lot more entertaining.


Being the first solo show from Cirque Du Soleil clown and acclaimed international performer Sean Kempton, Stuff explores the theme of love in a unique way by making use of physical theatre and quirky miming, thus resulting in a complex topic being presented in a light-hearted way.

Kempton really did surprise me - I'm not usually one for miming and clown shows as I usually associate them with extremely cliche humour and generic structure. However, his ability to create an entertaining and wacky atmosphere for all ages was done flawlessly, and going from watching sex jokes to watching strangers, who've never met before, dance together was rather touching and quite nice to watch.

Whilst sometimes it did come across as a bit weird to watch, it certainly turned out to be a pleasure.
