World-renowned clown, juggler and comic acrobat, Jamie Adkins, stumbles onstage, desperately trying to become the man he imagines himself to be. In his new show, A Fool’s Errand, Adkins uses his unique blend of skills and unguarded physical comedy to explore the what-ifs along the path of life, accompanied by a charismatic tuba player.
The first collaboration between Adkins and innovative tuba player and composer, Julie Houle, A Fool’s Errand is ultimately a show about the transformative power of friendship. Through Houle’s masterful use of her instrument, the soundtrack ranges from fanfare to experimental.
Checking off his list, Adkins wreaks havoc with his deft, yet daft juggling and shares a childhood memory by leaping into more and more pairs of underpants. As he tests the laws of gravity, we are reminded that the path to success is never a straight line. In fact, it is sometimes a wobbly rope.
Plan for a fun afternoon with Jamie Adkins. A Fool’s Errand, April 14 at the Georgian Theatre.
