The multi-award winning physical comedy duo bring a brand new hour of pure joy and anarchic buffoonery ‘brimming with wit and imagination’ ***** (TVBomb). Join these dazzling idiots for (probably) The Greatest Show on Earth.
“Following in the hallowed tradition of Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean” (Broadway Baby), The Kagools: Cirque De Kagool is a physical comedy show featuring two silent and strange, but friendly, characters. The Kagools live both in this realm (live on stage) and in an alternate reality (via an on-stage screen), which they effortlessly interact with to hilarious effect. Through mimed sketches, audience participation and using interactive multimedia, you’ll follow them on their ridiculous adventures. The show is universally appealing as the entire story is told physically, and as such is suitable for speakers of all languages and to young and old alike.

Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
