This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Ramesh Meyyappan is an internationally renowned visual theatre artist, whose last major work, Butterfly, sold out worldwide. His latest work is a dark, comedic, highly physical theatre production, incorporating illusions and masterful visual storytelling.
At work and at home, Joe Kilter has his own, obsessive, routine. But then a change in his routine turns his world Off Kilter, leaving him isolated and desperate, until he is forced to exist in darkness.
OFF KILTER explores mental wellbeing, identity, feeling a little bit different from everyone else, and not quite being yourself.
