TheatreWorks is thrilled to announce our upcoming production in October! Helmed by internationally acclaimed performer Ramesh Meyyappan. Fresh from its run in Glasgow, where it garnered rave reviews, Off Kilter features Ramesh’s unique style of performance – an eclectic mix of visual and physical theatre.
“…the sheer artistry Meyyappan brings to his performance – and the power of Joel Nah’s supporting score and soundscape… makes Off Kilter a profoundly absorbing and moving show.” – The Scotsman, Glasgow
“Ramesh is an artist who seeks out courage, hope and redemptive transformation in his story telling …one of his (Ramesh Meyyappan) finest performances yet.” – The Herald, Glasgow
“Jaw-dropping display of both pure physical comedy and magic… devastating moments of beauty, humour and pathos …this is a timely, deeply heartfelt gem.” – The List, Glasgow
“A brilliant physical performer, Meyyappan’s control and expressiveness of movement are magnetic, and he emanates a warmth and humour that constantly invites empathy.” – Exeunt Magazine
“The work I have been creating is purely visual – the stories and narratives tend to focus on us – what it is to be human, human stories that we all can relate to,” explains Meyyappan. Off Kilter explores mental well-being, identity, feeling a little bit different from everyone else and not quite being yourself.
At work and at home, Joe Kilter has his routine. Some people think Joe is obsessive. Joe would prefer not to be thought of at all. A change in his routine turns his world askew. His life is no longer his own, his house is knocked sideways and he’s off his game. Joe Kilter is off-kilter. Feeling increasingly isolated, his life feels impossible until he is forced to exist in darkness.
Off Kilter is a darkly comedic visual theatre production, incorporating illusions and masterful non-verbal storytelling. Ramesh Meyyappan is a master of physical theatre, award-winning actor, and internationally renowned visual theatre artist. His last major work, Butterfly, played to sold out audiences in the UK, USA, Singapore and at the Edinburgh Fringe.
