A show for 6-10 year olds, Blowfish is performed by a group of buffoons, otherworldly beings with big bellies and bums, who travel in packs and aren't very good at being individuals. Using the seven colours of the rainbow, Blowfish evokes the passions and struggles that come with the individual trying to find his place within the collective.
"As colourful as the rainbow that inspired it"
The Sunday Times
"Among the most delightful, and thought-provoking companies around. Emboldened by a restless energy, and sense of fun"
The Sunday Tribune
