Inquiline ˈɪnkwɪlʌɪn/

1. An animal living in the nest, burrow, or body of another animal.

A solo-show by world-class physical performer Thom Monckton. 
"Monckton is nothing short of a genius” Boardway Baby

You’re invited to a private audience with your parasite. He wants to explain himself. He wants to tell you why you do the things you do. He wants to reassure you you’re being looked after. He wants to remind you not to panic.

The Inquiline has no name, no body, no brain; only instinct to never stop moving, never stop feeling, never stop outlasting. Most of all, he wants you to know he loves you very much.

About the artists

Thom Monckton is an internationally renowned physical performer and clown who still dabbles in circus but these days makes absurd, dark, and at times totally inexplicable shows. Sasha Milavic Davies is a director/choreographer working in opera, dance, and live installation throughout Europe. She makes experimental, structure-less, cross-genre work and sometimes wishes she were a visual artist instead. 

"Bizarre yet tremendously satisfying"A Younger Theatre on Thom Monckton's The Pianist at London International Mime Festival 2015.
