Enter a world of pure imagination and wonder with former Cirque du Soleil star clown and mime artist Julien Cottereau.

'The next Chaplin, even the next Mr Bean' (The Sunday Times)
'A force of nature who has to be seen to be believed' **** (Metro)

Using only the potent powers of the imagination and a startling variety of vocal sound effects, Julien creates a magical world from nothing. Endless fun and games can be had with invisible balls, chewing gum, dogs of all shapes and sizes, a wild beast or two and a fairytale princess.

After a year-long sell-out season in Paris and winning the 2007 Moliere Award, 'Imagine Toi' has enchanted audiences across the world.

Julien Cottereau reconnects you with your sense of childhood wonder in a show of joyous simplicity and pure entertainment. A show for children and for the child within you.

'For an audience aged four to ninety-four - the perfect Christmas treat.' (broadwayworld.com)

'He's very, very funny: a blissful 90 minutes.' (British Theatre Guide)

'My sports-mad, PS2-playing 12-year-old was enraptured. Subtle, poetic, extremely funny... A delightful family show.' **** (The Sunday Telegraph, Sydney)

'A Gallic Bilbo Baggins... Rowan Atkinson-like... A small explosion of the imagination in itself.' (The Arts Desk)

'With an air of Chaplin... Cottereau plays in turn with the audience and their emotions, giving French mime a hint of poetry and genius.' (20 Minutes, France)

Duration 1 hour 20 minutes.
Not suitable for children under four years.
