Anyone who thought Circus was just for kids, will have to reconsider after witnessing THROAT, a critically acclaimed, witty and sexy fusion of circus, physical comedy and dance. THROAT is a stunning display of physical grace and eroticism, yet beneath its glittering surface it has something profound to say about the human condition.

"Effortlessly cool yet fantastically unrestrained, graceful yet masculine, assured yet modest, Zaccarini is a one-man sensation. If you're searching for a magical Fringe experience that will stay with you long after the Festival frenzy is over, don't miss this"   Metro

Harnessing the effects of light and water, THROAT explores issues of masculine identity and vulnerability, and the nature of performing- for oneself, a partner, an audience. John Paul Zaccarini directed by Flick Ferdinando shifts from hilarity to despair, vulnerability to cock sure, suspended above the stage, shedding clouds of flour, slithering in the pools of water that rain on stage; preening for the audience and the mirror, transforming himself into representations of all levels of sex, love and that messy stuff in between.
