Runtime
55 minutes

An immersive comedy ride with two Bouffons who dance, sing and talk gibberish, until you get it. Part bizarre, part captivating and a whole lot firecracker of a tummy-tickling comedy show, as if Alejandro Jodorowsky crafted this seriously funny absurdity. From the very co-founders of HINPROV-Toronto’s first bilingual improv community.

A starter-pack to ‘A Brief History of Colonization’, Colonial Circus takes the subject of colonization head-on, with a sense of play and wink. Get yourself a ticket to chuckle and permission to scratch the historical scabs of colonization, with the hope of healing together with laughter.

More about the show and company

Sachin and Shreya, the two co-founders of Culture Opus Inc. recently moved to Toronto from India. They are now Toronto based artists (also known as Two.2.Mango) who use comedy as their device to speak against oppressive frameworks. Their artistic performances have a flavor of their cultures, languages, Asian upbringing and topics of immigrant lives, representation, and jokes often lost in translation. They are also co-founders of HINPROV.
